Former President Trump has called for terminating the U.S. Constitution, as he continues to rail against his election loss in 2020. In a post on his social media platform, Truth Social, Trump wrote, “A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.” A flurry of Democrats and the White House swiftly rebuked the comment, while top Republican leadership remained silent. Trump’s post followed a Twitter thread by reporter Matt Taibbi, promoted by Elon Musk, detailing Twitter’s internal discussions in 2020 as the platform decided to block links to a New York Post article about emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
In other Trump news, a prosecutor in the criminal tax fraud trial of his real estate business told a Manhattan court Friday evidence shows “Mr. Trump is explicitly sanctioning tax fraud.” The trial is expected to wrap up this week.
