President Trump on Saturday accused Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other Republicans of failing to fight on his behalf regarding the outcome of the 2020 presidential election – which Trump continues to argue was “Rigged & Stolen.”
The president’s latest claims came just 25 days ahead the scheduled Jan. 20 inauguration of Democrat Joe Biden, following the Nov. 3 election and a Dec. 14 vote by the Electoral College that all but confirmed Biden’s victory. Only a Jan. 6 session on Capitol Hill – at which lawmakers are expected to accept the election results – stands between Trump and the conclusion of his time in the White House.
It didn’t have to be that way, Trump suggested Saturday, alleging that McConnell and Senate Republicans haven’t worked hard enough to assure him a second term.
“If a Democrat Presidential Candidate had an Election Rigged & Stolen, with proof of such acts at a level never seen before, the Democrat Senators would consider it an act of war, and fight to the death,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Mitch & the Republicans do NOTHING, just want to let it pass. NO FIGHT!”
