A chilling tweet from former President Obama’s campaign manager last year shocked supporters of President Trump as it resurfaced on Twitter.
In fact, the hair-raising tweet should give all Americans pause as the nation – and the world – cope with the tumultuous first months of the Trump presidency.

It is not enough to simply beat Trump. He must be destroyed thoroughly. His kind must not rise again.

The original tweet, from June 2016, came a month before the Republican National Convention which would confirm then-candidate Trump as the official GOP nominee.
@TheLastRefuge2 Wow. My stomach just got queasy after reading that.

@TheLastRefuge2 Thanks for finding that. When I read it my hair stood on end. President Trump is a very brave man. Prayers for him and his family.

Plouffe, who served as Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, was also a board member of the Obama foundation and senior vice president of policy and strategy at Uber.
His tweet is even more telling, given his longtime role as an adviser to Obama and a Democratic Party campaign consultant.
With the almost relentless supply of negative stories, claims and accusations against Trump since he first took office, one may not find it surprising to consider there has been a method to the madness.
The president and his staff seem to have been launched into crisis-management mode from the outset, and have spent the last weeks dealing with one “bombshell” after another, especially in the wake of Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey. That set off a media feeding frenzy that was even criticized by Fox News host Chris Wallace
@TheLastRefuge2 60 million ppl continuesly getting insulted by the democrats all its doing is ensuring their demise as a political force.

Through tweets and interviews, Trump has claimed he was wiretapped by the Obama administration, has repeatedly denied any collusion with the Russian government in the U.S. election and has had to explain every move and decision he has made.
The chaos has reached a fever-pitch with many seeing more of an orchestrated plan than just random “scandals.” Even some liberals are calling out the collusion between Democrats and press which Trump said is on a “witch hunt.”

Almost one year to the date of Plouffe’s original tweet calling on Trump to be “destroyed thoroughly,” Twitter users remarked on the significance of the comments in light of all that has happened since they were made.
