The president’s tweet comes after he spoke at a rally Wednesday, telling supporters that he would “never concede” and repeated unsubstantiated claims that the election was “stolen” from him and that he won in a “landslide.”
During his remarks, he renewed pressure on Vice President Mike Pence, claiming that he should decertify the results of the presidential election and send it “back to the states,” claiming that if he did that, Trump would be president for another four years.
The president, on Thursday night, posted another video, after being blocked from Twitter and Facebook for violating their policies with his previous posts, condemning the “heinous attack” on the Capitol by his supporters and called for healing.
This whole election cycle has been one for the history books, though not in a good way. It’s clear that there was some voter fraud going on that may have impacted the outcome of the election.
We need to investigate these matters not only to make sure Biden won fair and square, but to also ensure the security and integrity of our election system. Without free and fair elections, our nation and everything it is built on crumbles.
