Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton predicted that should former President Donald Trump win a second term in November, he could pursue violent ends to his opposition in politics and in the media.

Clinton appeared on the podcast Defending Democracy in an episode that aired Friday, where she spent the majority of the nearly 45-minute interview discussing Trump, who beat her in the 2016 presidential election, and his supporters. During the interview, Clinton suggested Trump might take a page out of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s book should he retake the office.

“Trump was like, you know, just gaga over Putin because Putin does what Trump would like to do: Kill his opposition, imprison his opposition, drive journalists and others into exile, rule without any check or balance,” Clinton said. “That’s what Trump really wants.”

She suggested his efforts to overturn the 2020 election, which he lost to President Joe Biden, was similar to that of Putin’s strategy.
