President Donald Trump on Wednesday refused to commit to a peaceful transition of power after the November election, which Chris Hayes called “chilling.”

“Just to be clear, if you’re talking to a person and you ask them to commit to behave peacefully and they refuse, they’re threatening violence, right?” the MSBNC host asked.

“It all sounds crazy to say,” he said. “It is what we are seeing. Those are the plain facts as assembled before us. It’s not a behind-the-scenes type of thing, it’s happening in public, in plain view.”

Hayes then went through several election scenarios, including the possibility that Trump wins outright or the possibility that Biden wins in a “decisive, historic, unambiguous rout.”
