Donald Trump went scorched earth on Mike Pence with a brutal statement and declared that the 2020 presidential election “will go down as the crime of the century.”
Late on Saturday, Trump went after Pence and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
“As our Country is being destroyed, both inside and out, the Presidential Election of 2020 will go down as THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY!” Trump said in a statement.
The next statement took aim at Pence for refusing to send back the Electoral College vote for re-certification.
“Had Mike Pence had the courage to send the Electoral College vote back to states for re-certification and had Mitch McConnell fought for us instead of being the weak and pathetic leader he is, 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!” Trump wrote.
Then, Trump issued another statement on Sunday saying there is no way that Biden won the 2020 election.
“Breaking News! New polling by CBS News on the state of the Republican Party (which is very strong!). ‘President Trump has a strong hold on the GOP.’ 80% of Republicans agree with the removal of Liz Cheney from GOP Leadership and only 20% disagree,” Trump wrote. “The poll also showed that 67% of Republicans said that they do not consider Sleepy Joe Biden to be the legitimate winner of the 2020 Presidential Election. I agree with them 100%, just look at the facts and the data—there is no way he won the 2020 Presidential Election!”
The Donald Trump comeback continues, this time with a new project set for Independence Day, July 4, 2021.
The 45th President of the United States — who was banned from Twitter and still has a suspension from Facebook in effect — is planning to launch his own social media platform to coincide with the Fourth of July celebrations.
The July 4 date is only tentative, and it could change but that is said to be the current target.
“These things have a habit of slipping but wouldn’t that be a symbolic date to get back online,” a former Trump administration official said.
“We believe that of all the platforms that have come out, we are the right platform for the president,” chief executive Jeff Brain told the Wall Street Journal.
Trump has hinted in recent weeks that he could be mounting a major 2024 run.
“I’m loving what I do and I’m loving the result that we’ve had and I think people will be very happy with my decision,” Trump said. “We’ve done a real job and I look forward to making people very happy.”
It echoes comments he made to Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo in April.
The biggest news of the interview came when Bartiromo asked him if he would run again for president in 2024.
“Yes, 100 percent and the polls show that everyone wants me to do it,” he said
Trump is reportedly considering Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as his 2024 running mate.
“Certainly, Ron would be considered. He’s a great guy,” Trump said.
