Trump has spent years laying the groundwork for another coup in 2024, and he’s not happy that Congress appears set to pass legislation to stop it.
Trump wrote on “Truth” Social:
Corrupt Democrats and RINOs (including 40-point loser Liz Cheney) passed the “Presidential Election Reform Act” in the House of Representatives, making it “impossible” for a vice president to cure voter fraud and wrongdoing. The same people have been screaming that Mike Pence had NO power to do the right thing and send it back to the States to investigate widespread voter fraud. It is now clear that he could and should have done it, otherwise why would they need a new law? Also – bill may be unconstitutional!
The Senate has not yet released its final version of the Electoral Count Act Reform Bill, but the House’s bipartisan version is constitutional because it covers federal certification and counting of Electoral College results.
Trump’s claim that Pence should have broken the law and overthrown the government for him shows that if Trump is the Republican nominee in 2024, Trump plans to pressure state election officials to overturn the results and have him reassigned Appoint winner if he loses.
He will no longer be able to do any of this after the reformed Electoral Law comes into force. Mitch McConnell supports the Senate version of the Electoral Count Act reform and urges Republicans to work with Democrats to introduce a bipartisan bill.
Trump knows he cannot win a majority vote in a legitimate election. Because of this, he spent his entire presidency trying to convince the nation that his 3 million vote loss to Hillary Clinton was a landslide victory.
If Congress shuts down his coup route, which could also be his way to avoid criminal conviction, Trump will have no choice but to run again in 2024 and lose.
