Shortly before Labor Day officially ended Monday evening, President Donald Trump went on Twitter and issued a threat at his perceived enemies. He also insisted that he will win by an even larger margin than he did in 2016.
Here’s the tweet Trump sent shortly after 10 p.m.:
The Real Polls are starting to look GREAT! We will be having an even bigger victory than that of 2016. The Radical Left Anarchists, Agitators, Looters, and just plain Lunatics, will not be happy, but they will behave!

What “real polls” is the president referring to? Every single poll shows him trailing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The most recent CBS/YouGov survey had him behind Biden by 10 points and behind in nearly every battleground state, including Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
As for the threat against anyone who dares disagree with him, many on social media read that as yet another hint of fascism from the president, and they responded with righteous fury:
You’re losing. You have no path to victory that doesn’t involve voter suppression, mail fraud, or militias.

Joe Biden is actually extending his lead in the polls as more and more Republicans and independents are coming together to put an end to your terrible administration. #RepublicansForBiden

Real polls are the voices in his head?

The real polls? Like when you say you are the most honest in the WH ever? You lost the military last week, you will lose in November. And when you are out, there will be more indictments than you have had hamburgers. Bigly and tremendous.
