Trump's ex-communications director has warned that if the former president wins a 2nd term he would establish an autocracy in the US

  • A former White House communications director has warned of a "nightmare scenario" if Donald Trump wins in 2024.
  • Alyssa Farah told CNN that Trump would "absolutely" impose some form of autocracy.
  • She added that he could weaponize the justice system against political opponents and use the military for political reasons.

An ex-White House official warned of a "nightmare scenario" if former President Donald Trump wins a second term, she told CNN, per Newsweek's reporting

Alyssa Farah, who served as the White House's director of strategic communications and assistant to the president in 2020, told journalist CNN's Jake Tapper that Trump would "absolutely" impose some form of autocracy if re-elected in 2024.

She described her former boss as a "man who has challenged our institutions near to the breaking point," according to a clip from CNN'S "Trumping Democracy: An American Coup."

Farah went on to say that Trump's second term would be "very different," and added that is what "scares" her the most.

"There were things that he wanted to do when he was in power the first time that was well beyond the scope of what the US president should be able to do, but oftentimes it was simply the motivation of hoping to win reelection that kept him from doing things," she said.

When pressed for an example of things the former president might do differently, Farah outlined her expectations to Tapper. "Whether it's weaponizing the justice department against political opponents, whether it's going after the free press, he would certainly be open to using the military for political reasons as well," she said.

Trump has not officially announced a run for 2024 but signaled that he will run when teasing a campaign slogan at an October rally in Iowa.

His former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, said last week that he would bet all of his money on Trump running for a second term.

Another ex-White House official, Fiona Hill, who served as former President Donald Trump's top Russia expert, recently said that that Trump could win in 2024 if he decides to win. Like Farah, she offered a less than complimentary assessment of a second term.

"Just one constitutional crisis after another," Hill told The Hill. "We're in for a wild ride. We're already in it."
