Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of ABC’s “The View,” delivered a dire message to American voters regarding the potential reelection of former President Donald Trump in 2024.
The conversation on Tuesday’s show turned serious when discussing Trump’s suggestion that the Republican National Committee cancel all future GOP debates to “STOP THE STEAL.”
The hosts expressed concerns about Trump asking to be declared the winner of the GOP primary without holding a vote. Sara Haines emphasized the need for alternatives and giving other candidates a chance before making decisions.
Whoopi Goldberg interjected, highlighting that Trump’s approach is not how the U.S. government works and stressed the importance of checks and balances.
Goldberg emphasized that the people have to decide, and the system prevents a leader from declaring themselves. Sara Haines likened Trump’s approach to talking to a toddler, stating that you can’t always get what you want.
Goldberg then stated that if Trump were to get reelected, the country would deserve what it gets.
Joy Behar questioned the “we,” and Goldberg clarified that it meant the collective responsibility of the country, stating that if Trump were to return, it would indicate a failure to be loud, strong, or uphold the constitution to keep him out.
