Former president Donald Trump, on Saturday, called for the suspension of the US Constitution in order to reverse his 2020 election loss. “Do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,” he wrote on Truth Social. 

He hit an anti-democracy benchmark and went on yet another rant about his two-year-old election defeat. Trump in his message went on to say that the “Founders” would agree with him. Trump's post comes about two weeks after his Twitter account was reinstated. He also wrote accused “Big Tech” of working closely with Democrats. 

White House spokesman Andrew Bates slammed Trump's statement. He called the US Constitution a "sacrosanct document,” CNN reported. “The American Constitution is a sacrosanct document that for over 200 years has guaranteed that freedom and the rule of law prevail in our great country. The Constitution brings the American people together – regardless of party – and elected leaders swear to uphold it. It’s the ultimate monument to all of the Americans who have given their lives to defeat self-serving despots that abused their power and trampled on fundamental rights.” 

Trump announced his third presidential bid last month.
