Following the release of the ‘Twitter Files’ on Friday, a trove of documents detailing Twitter’s communications on censorship, Donald Trump released a statement saying that parts of the U.S. Constitution should be terminated. He argued the files showed evidence of “fraud and deception” in the 2020 election and that parts of the Constitution should be terminated due to this. The White House came out saying that Trump’s comments should be “universally condemned” and even Elon Musk tweeted saying, “The Constitution is greater than any President. End of story.”

Here is Trump’s full statement from Truth Social:

“So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, 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. Our great ‘Founder’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”

The White House quickly condemned this statement when press secretary Andrew Bates released their own statement:

“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. Attacking the Constitution and all it stands for is anathema to the soul of our nation, and should be universally condemned. You cannot only love America when you win.”

Trump’s criticism of the Constitution is the most recent move to land him in hot water as just last week he faced heavy criticism for having dinner with white supremacist Nick Fuentes and Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West.
