(And with that, Trump no longer has a chance of winning even the republican primary in 2024.)
Former President Donald Trump called for the termination of the Constitution to overturn the 2020 election and reinstate him to power Saturday in a continuation of his election denialism and pushing of fringe conspiracy theories.
“Do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,” Trump wrote in a post on the social network Truth Social and accused “Big Tech” of working closely with Democrats. “Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”
Trump’s post came after the release of internal Twitter emails showing deliberation in 2020 over a New York Post story about material found on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
White House spokesman Andrew Bates said Saturday that Trump’s remarks are “anathema to the soul of our nation, and should be universally condemned.”
“You cannot only love America when you win,” Bates said in a statement. “The American Constitution is a sacrosanct document that for over 200 years has guaranteed that freedom and the rule of law prevail in our great country. The Constitution brings the American people together – regardless of party – and elected leaders swear to uphold it. It’s the ultimate monument to all of the Americans who have given their lives to defeat self-serving despots that abused their power and trampled on fundamental rights.”
Employees on Twitter’s legal, policy and communications teams debated – and at times disagreed – over whether to restrict the article under the company’s hacked materials policy. The debate took place weeks before the 2020 election, when Joe Biden, Hunter Biden’s father, was running against then-President Trump. ...
I wish he would stop weinning how the 2020 election was "stolen". It's been 3 years and he needs to get over it and shut the fuck up. After all that stuff they found in Marlago home, he just advertising put me in jail . In solitary confindment would be great.
Could he run as an Independent? Of course...he'd have to finance the run himself but he'd just do another ''help me overturn the Democrats" campaign...
@snytiger6 OF COURSE. Someone on the Jan. 6th committee pointed out that pocketing money he solicited as ''campaign funds" is a form of WIRE FRAUD.
He's been constantly fundraising ever since he lost in 2020. Of course he just pocketed a lot of the money he raised...
