Washington: US Vice President Kamala Harris has called former US President Donald Trump a "threat" to democracy.

In a post on X, Kamala Harris stated, "Donald Trump is a threat to our democracy and fundamental freedoms. President @JoeBiden and I will restore Roe, protect voting rights, and finally address our gun violence epidemic. The contrast could not be clearer."

US President Joe Biden's campaign spokesperson, James Singer, said that former President Donald Trump "wants another January 6" after Trump on Saturday said that there would be a 'bloodbath' in the country if he lost the upcoming polls, reported CNN.

Condemning his statement, Singer emphasised that the US people would not make him win the presidential elections.

"American people are going to give him another electoral defeat this November because they continue to reject his extremism, his affection for violence, and his thirst for revenge," Singer said.

US Vice President's statement comes days after Joe Biden and Donald Trump have secured the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations, respectively, setting up a rematch with each other. 

Trump clinched the Republican nomination for president and Biden secured the Democratic nomination.
