Jones attributes the escalation of violent rhetoric to Trump’s statements, which he claims seek to delegitimize and politicize the actions of the courts. The report underscores the need for political leaders from both sides to condemn these calls for violence and calls for social media platforms to reassess their role in hosting and promoting such dangerous rhetoric.
