Monday morning Trump posted this tweet:
“The only way to shut down the Democrats new Mob Rule strategy is to stop them cold at the Ballot Box. The fight for America’s future is never over!” Ben Shapiro

Trump's latest claim, that Democrats are an "angry mob," has exactly zero basis in fact or reality.
Meanwhile, just last week, a GOP candidate for governor warned his Democratic opponent, the current governor, that he was going to stomp on his face with golf cleats. A far right wing "men's rights" group allegedly attacked several people on the streets of New York, and anyone who has ever seen this video of Trump rallies knows what a mob looks like.
Some responses via Twitter:
Ben Shapiro is completely right except for the part where he calls Republicans "Democrats".

This man is dangerous. From demonizing minorities to sexual assault survivors, DJT is truly a budding despot and megalomaniac. He is telling his supporters that we are evil and using words that could incite violence. HE should be impeached. https://t.co/kQ96wwFudV
