Former President Donald Trump called for the Constitution to be terminated on Saturday due to what he calls “massive & widespread” fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“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?” Trump wrote on his Truth Social app.
“A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,” he continued. “Our great ‘Founder’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”
Trump’s post comes after Elon Musk released internal Twitter emails on Friday showing deliberations among Twitter’s staff regarding the platform’s decision to limit access to the New York Post story about materials found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, according to CNN. Twitter said the story violated the company’s policy on hacked and stolen materials
The White House condemned Trump’s comments in a statement on Saturday.
“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,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates said. “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. Attacking the Constitution and all it stands for is anathema to the soul of our nation, and should be universally condemned. You cannot only love America when you win.”
Trump announced a third bid for the White House last month and is considered to be the frontrunner for the Republican Party nomination.
