At a rally today at Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami, Joe Biden actually told the crowd there to imagine Trump being given the ‘death blow’ in this election by Haitians, and how ironic that would be:

“Think about this. Wouldn’t it be an irony, the irony of all ironies, if on election eve it turned out [that] Haitians delivered the coup de grâce in this election.”
A coup de grâce is defined as “a final blow or shot given to kill a wounded person or animal.” Biden obviously doesn’t mean this literally as it pertains to Trump’s health, but his choice of language is getting a lot or reaction.

Is this a threat to our sitting president from his political rival?
Seems that way to me… https://t.co/tcGtgwDs6a

No, I don’t think this is a threat on Trump’s life. But we know if Trump said this it would be treated like a threat. Media pundits everywhere would be decrying this as some kind of Trump dog whistle aimed at Joe Biden, calling his people to arms to harm the former VP. You know it’s true.
