A former US Representative has vowed to take up arms, a musket to be precise, if Donald Trump loses the US Presidential election.

The former Congressman Joe Walsh, a Republican from Illinois, on Wednesday, tweeted about what he was planning if Trump loses the election.

He wrote: “On November 8th, I’m voting for Trump… On November 9th, if Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket. You in?”

Walsh, an often controversial figure, is not the first Trump supporter to suggest some revolution may take place.

This comes after Trump himself suggested the election could be rigged against him.

Some schools are to be closed on election day, for fear that there may be protests that could turn violent.

Walsh had tweeted just hours before his “musket” message to slam the idea of closing schools on November 8.

Authorities have expressed concern about violence around the election.

Walsh previously declared “war” on the Black Lives Matter movement, writing: “Real America is coming for you.”
