"We will have a government that represents us and not the donor class," he continued. "We are going to cut through corruption, [and] we will not have to do what comes next, which is a nonviolent or a violent revolution, because this has to end ".
Speaking to Variety on the red carpet before the event, Mr. Cromwell said: "There will be blood in the streets" if President Trump stays in power.
"This is nascent fascism." We always had a turnkey, totalitarian state; all we needed was an excuse, and all the institutions were in place to turn this into pure fascism, "he said." If we do not stop [President Trump] Now, then we will have a real revolution. Then there will be blood in the streets. "
Mr. Cromwell, 78, is a long-time liberal activist who has been arrested several times for protesting environmental problems.
