President Trump would do anything for a second term in the White House, but he won’t do that.
Over the weekend, several mainstream news outlets issued a startling report, stating that President Trump has privately considered implementing martial law in order to to re-do the 2020 election.
The Commander in Chief wholeheartedly denied that the conversation ever took place, however.
“Martial law = Fake News,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Just more knowingly bad reporting!”
The New York Times reported Trump met with Sidney Powell and his former National Security advisor Gen. Michael Flynn on Friday evening to explore further options of challenging the 2020 presidential election, even though the electoral college has already met to elect Biden.
Cable news outlets seized on the Times report that the president discussed imposing martial law and deploying the military to rerun the election, a proposal that Flynn discussed on Newsmax.
Flynn’s suggestion was embraced by some within the MAGA movement, many of whom believe that widespread voter fraud and possible interference with certain voting machines may have stolen the election from Trump.
Powell is already rumored to be in the running for a special counsel position to investigate the 2020 election – a post that would remain intact even after a Joe Biden inauguration in January.
