Former President Donald Trump denied Monday that he wants to “‘terminate’ the Constitution”. The clarification comes two days after a controversy was generated in social networks by a message of the Republican in which he seemed to put the Constitution in question.
“The Fake News is actually trying to convince the American People that I said I wanted to ‘terminate’ the Constitution. This is simply more DISINFORMATION & LIES,” Trump said on Truth Social.
On Saturday, the former president criticized the U.S. electoral system. “A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,” Trump tweeted over the weekend.
Defending the Constitution
Republican Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming criticized Trump’s position. She further argued that the president has not changed his mind about the 2020 election.
“Donald Trump believes we should terminate “all rules, regulations and articles, even those found in the Constitution” to overturn the 2020 election. That was his view on 1/6 and remains his view today. No honest person can now deny that Trump is an enemy of the Constitution,” Cheney wrote on Twitter.
