Per The Hill:
Former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the wreckage from another Trump presidency would be “almost unimaginable” and likened the former president who beat her in the 2016 election to Adolf Hitler.
In an interview on ABC’s “The View,” Clinton said when she was secretary of State, she saw people who would “get legitimately elected” and then would try “to do away with elections and do away with opposition.”
“You could see it in countries where, well, Hitler was duly elected, right?” Clinton said. “And so all of a sudden somebody with those tendencies, so dictatorial authoritarian tendencies, would be like, OK, we’re going to shut this down.”
“Trump is telling us what he intends to do,” Clinton continued. “Take him at his word.”
Clinton’s comments come just days after a poll showed President Biden falling behind Trump in five battleground states, raising concerns among Democrats nationwide about the potential of another Trump win. Clinton said on the show Biden will be Democrats’ best hope for 2024.
The country is reeling from Trump’s policies and “deep divisions that he sowed,” host Sunny Hostin said of Clinton’s loss to Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

Here’s what Fox News added:
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined the co-hosts of “The View” on Wednesday and said that Adolf Hitler was “duly elected” while warning about what might happen if Donald Trump won again in 2024.
Co-host Sunny Hostin asked Clinton about what might happen if Trump were to be elected in 2024, as he seeks a second term in office after losing in 2020. Clinton said she couldn’t even think like that and added, “I think it would be the end of our country as we know it.”
“I think he would be even worse now, because he was somewhat restrained, believe it or not, in the first term, by people who he hired because he thought they would go along with him and they stood up to him. And so now he’s going to — if he were ever near the Oval Office again, find people who have no principles, no conscience, who are totally tied to his fortune… When I was Secretary of State, I used to talk about one and done. What I meant by that is that people would get legitimately elected, and then they would try to do away with elections and do away with opposition and do away with a free press,” Clinton said.
