There has been growing concerns among experts regarding US President Donald Trump committing voter fraud as he seeks reelection in November.  

Vox website published an article on Friday explaining how Trump’s accusations of vote-rigging and his efforts to sabotage mail voting could result in an election night nightmare in the United States..

The article explained that by creating chaos in the upcoming presidential election, Trump aims to tilt the results in his own favor. 

To create chaos through sabotaging mail voting, which is said to be a common practice among Democratic voters, Trump earlier this month encouraged his supporters to vote twice, once in person and once by mail.
“Let them send it in [by mail] and let them go vote” for the second time,"  Trump said on on September 2.

North Carolina State Attorney General Josh Stein said in a tweet that by making such remarks Trump intended to encourage his supporters “to break the law in order to help him sow chaos in our election.” 

In the meantime, Americans are asking what will happen if Trump is reelected?

Trump indirectly threatened Americans, invoking fear in them by warning that the United States would not be safe if his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, won the presidential election.

The consensus among analysts is that the Republican president is riling up his far-right support base to take violent action against non-Trumpers if he loses to Biden.

Trump has ordered security forces to launch a  heavy-handed crackdown on protesters in "lawless" US cities, threatening to cut federal funds in places where demonstrations were held against racism and police brutality.

In the meantime, Trump has been blamed by many for fomenting the violent clashes in US cities.

"Fires are burning and we have a president who fans the flames rather than fighting the flames," Biden said among many others who accuse Trump of stoking violence. 

In recent weeks, tensions have escalated between far-right Trump supporters and pro-justice protester, demanding equal rights.

US cities have been the scene of protests since the death of African American George Floyd at the hands of a white police officer in the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 25.
