Taking to Twitter on Sunday (December 4), Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) criticized former President Donald Trump for suggesting the Constitution be terminated to prevent “False & Fraudulent Elections.”
Trump posted on Truth Social on Saturday (December 3) about mass election fraud in the 2020 general election, but with a slightly more pointed demand: “the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution” to prevent what the former President described as a “Massive Fraud.”
Calling out Trump’s statements, Cheney reiterated Trump’s comments about terminating “rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution” when pointing out that an “honest person” couldn’t “deny that Trump is an enemy of the Constitution.”
In her tweet, Cheney also pointed out that Trump’s views on Truth Social were the same ones he held on January 6, 2021.
Fellow January 6 Select Committee, Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) also called out Trump for his remarks about changing the Constitution.
Like Cheney, Kinzinger pointed out that “not a single conservative can legitimately support” Trump after his statement about “throw[ing] aside the constitution.”
Kinzinger added that those who supported Trump couldn’t be called conservatives, emphasizing that “Trump hates the constitution.”
Trump’s post on Truth Social followed Elon Musk’s promotion of the “Twitter Files” — documentation that shows Twitter employees’ communication on the suppression of the New York Post’s October 2020 exposé on Hunter Biden’s laptop.
At the time, Twitter questioned the authenticity of the laptop’s content. Still, months later — after the 2020 general election — major news outlets confirmed its authenticity, leading to widespread allegations that social media platforms were censoring Republican voices.
