A remark by an attendee on Donald Trump’s Iowa rally Sunday made “Civil War” trending on Twitter which was widely circulated online by the media.

Trump’s rally in Des Moines took place Saturday. At that event, Trump supporter Lori Levi told MSNBC that she believes the U.S. is heading for a “civil war.” Levi slammed Democrats and Republicans who oppose Trump, saying most members of the GOP are “as weak as they possibly could be in Congress.”

Though Trump has not announced a second run for the White House, he held a campaign-style rally in Iowa.

On Sunday afternoon, the phrase “Civil War” had been tweeted by 67,000 people on the microblogging site Twitter. Most of them ripped apart Trump supporters and the right-wing “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) movement. Some of them also offered remedies to resolve the current divide within American society, reported Forbes.

Unsuccessful Democratic presidential and New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang tweeted that a “civil war is coming if we don’t stop dehumanizing those we disagree with politically.”

The political activist promoted his new Forward Party PAC, which aims to promote democratic reforms, Independent reported.

Dean Obeidallah, the host of The Dean Obeidallah Show, said that Democratic states would be happy for largely Republican states to secede from the country — unlike what happened back in the 1860s during the Civil War.

Actress and activist Patricia Arquette also dismissed the possibility of war within the country, saying, “even in states Biden lost across the country he got millions of votes,” she tweeted.

Ahead of Trump’s rally, the Des Moines Register released a poll showing that 53% of people in Iowa view him favorably. According to the poll, Trump also had a 91% favorability rating among Iowa Republicans. The poll also showed that 99% of Iowa Democrats viewed him unfavorably.

Meanwhile, the former president continues to slam his own party establishment. He took aim at Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell during the Iowa rally for not backing attempts to overthrow the 2020 presidential election.
