The White House condemned former President Donald Trump’s request to halt the U.S. Constitution in a statement. On Saturday, President Trump posted a comment to his Truth Social account where he repeated his false claim of winning the 2020 presidential elections. Furthermore, he accused “Big Tech Companies” of colluding with Democrats to undermine him.
Andrew Bates, the White House spokesman, said Trump’s remarks were execration to the soul of our nation. “America is not a country that you only love when you win,” Bates stated. He focused on the need to “universally condemn” Trump’s remarks – appearing to take a jab at senior Republicans who have remained silent about his comments.

In addition, senior Democratic legislators – including Representative Eric Swalwell, who questioned how the Republican Party could continue to call itself a constitutional conservative without condemning the comments – grilled the Republican Party. Finally, a vague allegation of “massive and widespread fraud and deception” was referred to in the post in which Trump asked whether he should be restored to power immediately.
“The elimination of all rules, regulations, and articles in the Constitution can be achieved by expelling a huge fraud of this magnitude and type. Our great “Founders” did not want, nor would they condone, fraudulent elections,” he continued. Earlier this week, Twitter revealed that they discussed limiting a story about Hunter Biden in 2020.
Musk to Release Information
The New York Post published a story revealing the chaos in President Joe Biden’s youngest son’s personal and professional life weeks ahead of the 2020 presidential election. A company policy regarding hacked and stolen materials initially blocked Twitter from publishing the story, and the leaked emails revealed confusion among staff as they scrambled to respond.
Matt Taibbi, a Substack writer, made the files public on Twitter on Friday night. However, the BBC is unable to verify their authenticity. However, Twitter owner Elon Musk hinted last week that the information would be made public, writing on Twitter: “This is crucial to restoring public trust.” During a live broadcast on Saturday on Twitter spaces, the billionaire defended his decision, but he acknowledged there may be a “legal risk.”
He added that legal risks were “less of a concern than clearing the air and making sure that people know what actually happened.” Musk added, “We will simply reveal all the information to create a clean slate.” “We simply disclose the entire story to create a clean slate.” Earlier this month, the President announced the launch of his third presidential campaign and is widely considered to be the favorite to win the GOP nomination in the 2024 elections.
Nonetheless, he has been criticized after dining with a known Holocaust denier and white nationalist at his Florida residence this week. A spokesperson for the rapper Kanye West said his attendance at the event was not anticipated and that he had gone with a friend who had expressed admiration for Adolf Hitler earlier this week and has been accused of making several antisemitic remarks.
Donald Trump Faced Criticism
Both Republican and Democratic parties have condemned the former President. Trump’s statement, according to the incoming Democratic Representative in the House of Representatives, is strange and extreme. Hakeem Jeffries said Republicans must choose between his antidemocratic views or reject them. “It will be up to the Republicans to resolve their disagreements with the former president and determine whether to break with him and return to some level of reasonableness or to continue to embrace President Trump’s extremist views, particularly his Trumpism,” Jeffries said.
In the aftermath of Donald Trump’s impeachment twice and the violent storm of the Capitol by his supporters on January 6, 2021, which halted a peaceful transfer of power, criminal investigations continue to intensify, including several that may result in indictments against the President. In addition to the ongoing investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice into classified documents seized by the FBI from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, there are state-level and federal investigations concerning attempts to reverse the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Rep. Mike Turner of Ohio, a member of the House Intelligence Committee and the top Republican on the committee, expressed his “vehement” disagreement and “absolutely” condemnation of Trump’s remarks, asserting that they should be considered when Republicans decide who will lead the party in 2024. Although there are many candidates for the party, there will still be a political process to complete before a candidate can be chosen as a front-runner or even a candidate for the party.
Trump Has Moved Close to Extremism
Last month, Donald Trump announced his decision to run for President for the second term and vowed to initiate drastic change because of his election loss. According to him, this type of fraud allows the abolition of all rules, regulations, and articles, including those in the Constitution. We believe our great ‘Founders’ would not tolerate false or fraudulent elections!”
In a report from Washington DC for Al Jazeera, Heidi Zhou-Castro said Trump’s appointment is “extraordinary” considering that presidents swear to protect the Constitution of the United States. Due to the importance of the U.S. Constitution, the world has come to expect bombastic remarks from Trump in the current climate.
“The announcement of Trump’s intention to run for president is the latest in a series of actions the candidate has taken since announcing he would seek the position,” Zhou-Castro continued. During his meetings with antisemites at Mar-a-Lago, he has moved closer to extremism, and he has also declared that if he is elected again, he will pardon the rioters who seized the United States Capitol on January 6.
Republican Representative Mike Lawler disagreed with these remarks, stating that it was time to stop concentrating on “grievances from last elections.” Among the reasons for setting up the Constitution is to ensure that the rights of every American are protected,” Lawler stated. If the former President intends to run again for the presidency, he is well advised to concentrate on the future.
In the last few days, Zhou-Castro says Trump has increased his rhetoric in a manner that concerns many Republicans. “Republicans are concerned about Trump’s move towards extremism, wishing he would not take these measures after the party’s performance in the last midterm elections was underwhelming,” she added.
