Democrats condemn Trump’s call for constitutional ‘end.’

Must read

The White House has accused former President Donald Trump of calling for the “repeal” of the US Constitution. Trump commented on a post on his social network Truth on Saturday, repeating his false claim that he won the 2020 presidential election. He also accused big tech companies of colluding with the Democrats against him. White House Press Secretary Andrew Bates called Mr. Trump’s comments “an abomination to the soul of our nation”.
“You can’t love America only when it’s winning,” Bates said in a statement. He added that Trump’s comments were “universally reprehensible.”

Other senior Democrats, including Rep. Eric Swalwell, also took issue with Republicans, who questioned how if members of the Republican Party would not condemn the comments, why would they call themselves “constitutional conservatives”? I wondered if we could continue to call it that In his post, Trump referred to vague allegations of “massive and widespread fraud and deception” and asked if he should be immediately put back in power. “A massive fraud of this kind and scale will allow the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those in the Constitution. I will not tolerate or condone!” he said. The post comes just hours after Twitter’s internal deliberations on restricting 2020 articles on Hunter Biden were revealed. Published just weeks before the 2020 presidential election, the article, published in the New York Post, revealed the chaotic personal life and business dealings of President Joe Biden’s youngest son.

Twitter initially blocked the story due to the company’s policy on hacks and stolen materials, but leaked emails showed confusion and disagreement among employees who struggled to respond. The files, which the BBC has not been able to confirm, were published by his Substack author Matt Taibbi on his Twitter account on Friday night. But last week, Twitter owner Elon Musk hinted at making the information public, writing to the platform: “This is necessary to restore public confidence.”

The billionaire defended the move in a Twitter Spaces Livestream on Saturday, but acknowledged that his decision may come with “legal risks.” “We will try to be a clean slate and release all information,” Musk said. He added that the legal risk “is less important than clearing the air and making sure people know what happened.” Trump announced his third presidential run last month and remains the frontrunner to secure the 2024 Republican nomination. But this week, he came under fire after dining with a prominent white supremacist and Holocaust denier at his home in Florida. Trump said he didn’t know he would be attending and said he was with rapper Kanye West.
