In a Truth Social post, Trump demands that the Constitution be terminated.

Former President Donald Trump called for the termination of the Constitution to overturn the 2020 election and reinstate him to power Saturday in a continuation of his election denialism and pushing of fringe conspiracy theories.

Do you annul the results of the 2020 presidential election and appoint the legitimate winner, or do you hold fresh elections? Trump accused “Big Tech” of cooperating closely with Democrats in a post on the social media platform Truth Social. “A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all laws, regulations, and articles, even those included in the Constitution,” he said. False and fraudulent elections are something that “our great ‘Founders’ did not desire and would not tolerate!”

Trump’s tweet occurred after internal Twitter communications that revealed deliberation in 2020 over a New York Post article regarding information discovered on Hunter Biden’s laptop were made public.

White House spokesman Andrew Bates said Saturday that Trump’s remarks are “anathema to the soul of our nation, and should be universally condemned.”

Bates stated in a statement, “You cannot only love America when you succeed. “The American Constitution is a sacred text that has ensured freedom and the rule of law in our wonderful nation for more than 200 years. Regardless of party, the Constitution unites the American people, and elected officials promise to uphold it. It serves as the final memorial to all Americans who gave their lives in the fight against despots who abused their authority and violated fundamental rights.

The decision to restrict the article in accordance with Twitter’s policy on hacked materials was a topic of discussion and, at times, disagreement among members of the company’s legal, policy, and communications teams. The debate took place weeks before the 2020 election, when Joe Biden, Hunter Biden’s father, was running against then-President Trump.

Trump announced his third presidential bid last month and is still widely considered the leader of the Republican Party. Party leaders had hoped that the former president would drop his election denialism rhetoric after lackluster results in the midterms.

In a video aired during a fundraiser earlier this week, Trump declared his support for the attackers of the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, claiming that “People have been treated unconstitutionally in my judgment and very, very unfairly, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it.”

In a September interview, Trump claimed to be “financially backing” some of the January 6 defendants and stated that if reelected, he would pardon the accused and apologize on behalf of the government.

Additionally, he has drawn criticism for hosting dinner at his Mar-a-Lago resort with rapper Kanye West, who has recently made a number of antisemitic comments, and known White nationalist and Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes.
