Since losing the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden, former President Donald Trump has remained steadfast in his assertions that the White House was stolen from him. Of his many accusations, his belief Big Tech colluded with Democrats to sway the election was given more credence last Friday when Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, released the “Twitter Files,” which showed such activity had taken place.
Rather than taking a moment to revel in his vindication regarding the legitimacy of Hunter Biden’s laptop, Trump instead wasted no time making himself the center of the news cycle again by calling for the “termination” of the Constitution to hold a new presidential election.
“The same level of Fraud took place with the other Big Tech companies, if not even worse (if that’s possible?),” Trump said on Truth Social regarding the Twitter Files. “We are living in a VERY CORRUPT COUNTRY &, AS THEY ARE SAYING ALL OVER THE INTERNET, ‘NOTHING WILL BE DONE ABOUT IT BECAUSE THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT & FBI ARE TOTALLY CORRUPT.’ But they’ll keep investigating ‘boxes’ that were legally & openly taken from the W.H.”
"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 continued. "Our great 'Founders' did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!"
Since making these comments, people on both sides of the aisle have stepped up to criticize the 2024 presidential hopeful.
Outgoing U.S. Congressman Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville), who spoke alongside Trump on Jan. 6, 2020, at a "Stop the Steal" rally, blasted Trump for his lack of "trustworthiness" as well as his marital infidelity.
“[Donald Trump] took oath to defend & protect the Constitution. Now [he] states USA can and should 'terminate' Constitution whenever Trump dislikes it," Brooks said in a tweet. "USA must learn Trump's oaths have same trustworthiness & veracity as Trump's marital vows."

Brooks has had many negative things to say about Trump since Trump withdrew his endorsement of Brooks in the 2022 U.S. senatorial election after Brooks said Republicans needed to move on from the 2020 election.
Per #MoBrooks, @realDonaldTrump unendorsed #MoBrooks 4 Senate because Brooks not violate Constitution by calling 4 election rescission IN 2022, Biden removal & make Trump Pres.— Mo Brooks (@MoBrooks) December 6, 2022
Trump reply? Brooks lies.
Trump saying “terminate” Constitution proves Brooks truthful. Trump not.
