We’re learning of remarks made by Donald Trump last night after the cameras departed at a White House dinner for evangelicals.  According to audio obtained by NBC News, the President said there would be violence if the GOP loses the midterms.

“The level of hatred, the level of anger is unbelievable,” he said. “Part of it is because of some of the things I’ve done for you and for me and for my family, but I’ve done them. … This Nov. 6 election is very much a referendum on not only me, it’s a referendum on your religion, it’s a referendum on free speech and the First Amendment.”

If the GOP loses, he said, “they will overturn everything that we’ve done and they’ll do it quickly and violently, and violently. There’s violence. When you look at Antifa and you look at some of these groups — these are violent people.”
Trump also claimed that he had gotten rid of a law that forbids churches and charitable organizations from endorsing political candidates if they want to keep their federal tax exemption.  That’s NOT TRUE. The law is still very much on the books. From NBC:
“The law that Trump says he got rid of is the so-called Johnson Amendment, a provision inserted into law in 1954 by then-senator and future President Lyndon Johnson of Texas, who was miffed that a conservative nonprofit group was helping his opponent.”
“Now one of the things I’m most proud of is getting rid of the Johnson Amendment,” the president said. “That was a disaster for you.”
That’s NOT TRUE either. Trump doesn’t have the authority to overturn it.
