Trump falsely claims he never called to ‘terminate’ US constitution despite having said exactly that

Former president Donald Trump claimed on Monday that he never advocated for an end to America’s constitution despite having called for its “termination” just days ago.

On Saturday, the twice-impeached ex-president took to his Truth Social platform to argue that social media platforms’ work with 2020 presidential campaigns (including his own) amounted to “ MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party .” He also asked if the US should somehow discard the results of the election he lost or call a new election even though neither course is allowed under US law.

He continued his post by claiming that the “Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude” can permit the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution”.

The suggestion that the US Constitution should be terminated was met with widespread backlash, including from members of his own party.

Apparently in reaction to the criticism, Mr Trump took to Truth Social again on Monday to claim he had never said what he had said two days before.

He claimed that news organisations, who have accurately reported his words (which are still posted on Truth Social) are “ actually trying to convince the American People that I said I wanted to ‘terminate’ the Constitution” and called the accurate reporting of statements he has posted to the internet “disinformation and lies ”.

A few minutes later, Mr Trump wrote in another post on the site that an “irrefutably fraudulent ” election should “go to the rightful winner” or “should be redone”, even though there is no mechanism to do so under US law.
