Donald Trump is setting the record straight after “fake news” reported on the former president’s TRUTH Social posts from the weekend where he indicated a wish to “terminate” the U.S. Constitution.
On Monday, Trump followed up on the media fiasco on TRUTH blaming the media for intentionally twisting his message.
“The Fake News is actually trying to convince the American People that I said I wanted to “terminate” the Constitution. This is simply more DISINFORMATION & LIES, just like RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, and all of their other HOAXES & SCAMS. What I said was that when there is “MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION,” as has been irrefutably proven in the 2020 Presidential Election, steps must be immediately taken to RIGHT THE WRONG. Only FOOLS would disagree with that and accept STOLEN ELECTIONS. MAGA!” Trump wrote on Monday.
The former president’s original post was in reaction to revelations about Twitter’s handling of the Hunter Biden laptop story.
“So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, 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. Our great “Founders” did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!” Trump posted over the weekend.
Trump’s startling rhetoric triggered immediate responses from Republicans who strongly rebuked his messaging.
Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski called Trump’s suggestion an “affront to our Republic.”
“Donald Trump believes we should terminate ‘all rules, regulations and articles, even those found in the Constitution’ to overturn the 2020 election,” Outgoing Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) wrote on Twitter. “That was his view on 1/6 and remains his view today. No honest person can now deny that Trump is an enemy of the Constitution.”
“With the former President calling to throw aside the constitution, not a single conservative can legitimately support him, and not a single supporter can be called a conservative. This is insane. Trump hates the constitution,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) tweeted.
