New York (Washington Insider Magazine) The former President of the United States again claimed that the polls were rigged against him and that the 2020 election was stolen from him in the 2020 election.
Donald Trump “called the 2020 presidential election the crime of the century” on Saturday. All of this after the violent insurrection occurred on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol, and Republicans attempted to dodge the fallout of the disastrous occurrence.
Trump also put down Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell (R-KY), saying that McConnell was “weak and pathetic” concerning his “communications platform.” Trump blasted his Vice-Present, Mike Pence, because he believed that Pence lacked “courage to reverse the results of the election, which Joe Biden won.”
Further, Trump claimed that “if Pence and McConnell had reinstalled Trump as head of the nation, we would right now have a Republican President who would be VETOING the horrific Socialistic Bills that are rapidly going through Congress, including Open Borders, High Taxes, Massive Regulations, and so much else!”
It was unclear exactly what “massive regulations” Trump was referring to though Biden “is planning to raise the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 25 to 28 percent.” And, in reality, there are no open borders.
Trump also claimed that “polling ahead of the election was rigged.” Polls either made him look as if he was an incredible winner or made him look as if he was an astounding loser. Either way, voters decided not to vote. “The position that not enough supporters turned out to vote would seemingly contradict Trump’s claims that ballots were somehow miscounted.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif) said on Wednesday, that no one is actually “questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election. I think that is all over with. We’re sitting here with the president today.”
However, that is not really true as there are some Republicans that continue to “undermine the legitimacy of the democratic presidential election.”
Liz Cheney (R-Wyo) was voted out by the House Republicans for her leadership role after “she refused to go along with Trump’s lies about the election.” She believes that the president’s speeches concerning election fraud did definitely motivate the insurrection.
Andrew Clyde (R-Ga) attempted to deny that the insurrection ever occurred. “There was no insurrection.” The violent behaviors of the people at the Capitol were “normal tourist visits to the Capitol.”
