A week without a Donald Trump-related controversy would be the exception to the norm here in the United States, especially now that the former President is officially back on the campaign trail for 2024.
But this week’s Trump trouble had little to do with the upcoming presidential election, (in which he is currently the presumptive GOP nominee). Instead, the former Commander in Chief had turned his attention to the 2020 contest, and a recent revelation by Twitter owner Elon Musk that seemed to indicate that the social media platform had worked to suppress a story that could have made a rather significant impact on that election.
Trump was livid, and suggested in a post on Truth Social that the Constitution itself could be suspended in order to restore fairness to the process...a claim that had Musk livid.
“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 continued. “Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”
The White House responded to Trump, saying the Constitution is a “sacrosanct document” that has guaranteed that freedom and the rule of law has prevailed for the past 200 years.
Then came Musk’s terse comment.
On Sunday, Musk chimed in on the matter.
“The Constitution is greater than any President,” he said. “End of story.”
Trump has long claimed that there were major issues with the 2020 election, and that he was the “rightful winner”. He has but a few allies in this crusade, however, and it appears as though Musk is not one of them.
