MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said she fears that Trump will put her in an internment camp in the event he is reelected this upcoming election season.

In an interview with CNN senior media reporter Oliver Darcey published in Monday's Reliable Sources newsletter, Maddow was asked about her concerns about being personally victimized by the Trump administration if he is to be winner of the 2024 presidential election.

'Trump and his allies are openly talking about weaponizing the government to seek revenge against critics in media and politics, with some of his extremist allies even talking about jailing their fellow Americans,' said Darcy. 'You're one of his most notable critics on television. Are you worried that you could be a target?'

Maddow replied: 'I'm worried about the country broadly if we put someone in power who is openly avowing that he plans to build camps to hold millions of people, and to 'root out' what he's described in subhuman terms as his 'enemy from within.'

'Again, history is helpful here. He's not joking when he says this stuff, and we've seen what happens when people take power proclaiming that kind of agenda.'

'I think there's a little bit of head-in-the-sand complacency that Trump only intends to go after individual people he has already singled out. Do you really think he plans to stop at well-known liberals?

'It also seems pretty clear that some people in politics might think they'll be on the safe side — that they might even benefit from it — if they side with Trump. Ask Mike Pence about how that works out in the end.

'When Trump invokes the Insurrection Act to deploy the U.S. military against civilians on his first day in office, do you think he then rescinds the order on day two?

She continued, 'For that matter, what convinces you that these massive camps he's planning are only for migrants? So, yes, I'm worried about me — but only as much as I'm worried about all of us.'

Maddow, a well-known advocate against Trumps's presidential campaign, said back in August that she fears Trump would become 'president for life,' in other words a dictator, if he clenches a second term in the White House.

'If every election is a new opportunity for him to go to prison, do you think he allows us to have new elections?' she said. 'I mean, if those are the stakes, if winning the election is his plan to stay out of prison, what happens in that election if and when he does not win it?'

In a recent interview with television personality Dr. Phil McGraw, more widely known as Dr. Phil, Trump said that sometimes getting even takes time.

'Well revenge does take time, I will say that. And sometimes revenge can be justified, Phil. I have to be honest. Sometimes it can,' said Trump.

Maddow has railed against Trump since he was first elected in 2016, with her flabbergasted reaction to his victory over Hillary Clinton one of the defining media moments of that election.
