The rally was intended to get out the vote for Republican Senate candidate, Bernie Moreno, whom Trump endorsed in December 2023, ahead of Ohio’s primary on Tuesday, March 19.

Trump said:

“Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s gonna be a bloodbath. That’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country."

He added:

“If you’re listening, President Xi — and you and I are friends — but he understands the way I deal. Those big monster car manufacturing plants that you’re building in Mexico right now … you’re going to not hire Americans and you’re going to sell the cars to us, no. We’re going to put a 100% tariff on every single car that comes across the line, and you’re not going to be able to sell those cars if I get elected.”

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motors, and owner of X, took to social media to accuse the 'legacy media' of "lies" about the comment.

Similarly, Republican representative from Ohio Mike Turner said on Sunday, March 17, it was clear that Trump’s reference to "a bloodbath" should he lose the November election pertained to the auto industry, not to a surge of political violence.

Responding to the backlash to Trump's comments, Novara Media co-founder Aaron Bastani said:

"This is categorical, unashamed fake news. It’s active misinformation.
"Trump was talking about Chinese cars manufactured in Mexico! Utterly appalling - people don’t trust the media because of this stuff. It’s unadulterated fake news."

US house votes to ban TikTok

In a piece of related news, reported that the US House passed legislation that would ban the popular video-sharing app, TikTok, unless it part ways with its Chinese parent company.

Lawmakers supportive of the bill have argued TikTok poses a national security threat because the Chinese government could use its intelligence laws against ByteDance, forcing it to hand over the data of US app users.

The vote by the house of representatives members was a landslide, with 352 Congress members voting in favour and only 65 against.
