On a recent episode of ABC’s The View, Whoopi Goldberg had a strong message for Americans if Donald Trump were to win the 2024 election: we would be responsible for the outcome.
The discussion began with the hosts reacting to Trump’s doctor’s positive health report, which led to a more serious conversation when Sunny Hostin mentioned Trump’s suggestion to cancel future GOP debates to “STOP THE STEAL.”
According to the conversation on the show, Trump’s statement implied a desire to be declared the GOP primary winner without any voting process. Host Sara Haines expressed disbelief that such a statement went unchecked by fellow Republicans, emphasizing that there’s still time before the primaries begin.
The hosts stressed the need for alternatives to Trump, mentioning his history from the ’80s to his presidency and ongoing legal issues. Whoopi Goldberg highlighted that Trump’s approach does not align with the democratic process of letting the people decide through checks and balances.
Goldberg emphasized that America isn’t a dictatorship and decisions aren’t made based on personal desires but by the people. She compared Trump’s attitude to that of a toddler, implying that such behavior doesn’t align with the principles that have historically kept the country on track.
The conversation turned grave when discussing the potential repercussions of another Trump presidency. Goldberg firmly stated that if he were reelected, the responsibility would fall on the voters collectively, implying that if he were to return to power, it would signal a failure in being vocal enough or in upholding the strength of the country’s constitution.
This conversation on The View echoed concerns about the potential implications of another Trump presidency and highlighted the importance of the democratic process and voters’ responsibility in shaping the nation’s future.
