The Week has decided to use their upcoming issue to imagine what America will look like if Donald Trump loses the election. The depiction on their cover is fairly worrying to say the least:

In recent weeks, Trump has been ranting about how various establishment forces are rigging the election against him, and that he won’t commit to live by the results on Election Day. As such, The Week‘s cover assumes that Trump fans could very well go on a rampage if they feel that their candidate is deprived of his victory.
Trump supporters have stood behind the mogul’s rhetoric, arguing that it underlines their distrust for the government, the media, and any institutions thought to be aligned with Hillary Clinton. An example of this was on display yesterday, when CNN’s Jim Acosta was verbally assaulted by Trump fans while he tried to deliver a live report from a campaign rally.
