After being accused by Democrats of being a chaotic and dishonest leader, President Donald Trump has countered that Democrats, not he, would bring chaos to the United States if Joe Biden wins the White House in November.

‘If our opponents prevail no one will be safe in our country,’ Trump told conservative activists on Friday in his first speech since the Democratic National Convention ended this week.

‘I’m the only thing standing between the American dream and total anarchy, madness and chaos,’ Trump said.

He also suggested, without explanation, that the Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives could become president if the results of the November 3 election were not clear by the end of the year.

‘I don’t think you’ll know two weeks later. I don’t think you’ll know four weeks later,’ he said. ‘There’s a theory that if you don’t have it by the end of the year, crazy Nancy Pelosi would become president,’ he said.

Trump has sought to cast early doubt on the integrity of the election, and bringing up Pelosi, who is deeply unpopular with many Republicans, appeared aimed at motivating his base to vote.

Although the speaker of the House is third in line for the presidency, it is unclear how Pelosi would assume the office in the event of a disputed election. Congress ultimately holds the power to decide which state electors to accept and resolve disputes. If no candidate wins a majority, the House selects a winner, but must choose from the top three vote-getters.

In a preview of what Republicans will argue at their own convention next week, Trump hammered at the law-and-order theme he has embraced in response to protests and unrest in many cities, including Portland, Oregon.

He said police had been weakened in ‘Democrat-run’ cities and cited a spike in murders in Chicago, Minneapolis, New York and Philadelphia. He urged Americans to turn back ‘radical left socialists and Marxists.’
