Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner referred to President Donald Trump as a ''lawless, power-hungry despot'' and appeared to threaten him, issuing a statement that said if he sent ''uncertified 'poll watchers''' to the city, ''I’ve got something for you.''

''Keep your Proud Boys, goon squads, and uncertified 'poll watchers' out of our city, Mr. President. Break the law here, and I’ve got something for you,'' Krasner said in a statement issued by his office.

Krasner, a Democrat, issued his remarks after Trump decried a second night of looting and rioting in Philadelphia, requiring another evening curfew amid unrest over the police shooting death of a Black man who refused orders to surrender a knife.

The Pennsylvania National Guard had been ordered into Philadelphia to help quell the rioting.

Trump blamed Democratic rival Joe Biden for encouraging and supporting the rioters.

Krasner called Trump ''the greatest danger to public health and safety in modern history'' by referring to all of the COVID-related deaths in the country and said the president was throwing ''gasoline on a long-burning fire in order to provoke further unrest and violence.''

The rhetoric has intensified as Pennsylvania shapes up to be a critical state that Trump won by about 44,000 votes, the first Republican to win the state since George H.W. Bush in 1988.

The Trump campaign said last month that it would sue the city of Philadelphia over its refusal to admit poll watchers at satellite offices to observe the voting process.
