When dictators are challenged, they use their power to make their challengers go away in whatever form they can get away with. For Trump, it involves shaming someone on social media and firing them by tweet.
Director of Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Chris Krebs, a top official in Trump’s own Department of Homeland Security, recently released a statement saying “there is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.” A statement from the department also said that the 2020 presidential elections were the “most secure” the country has ever had. Donald Trump, of course, is furious.
There is no evidence that dead people voted in the election, a claim Republicans have made for several years now. There’s no evidence that Dominion voting machines switched votes from Trump to Biden or that the entire Dominion voting machine company is conspiring against the president. There’s no evidence of any of these “massive improprieties and fraud” that Trump keeps talking about, which is why his cases are being thrown out of court and his lawyers are quitting.
The truth is that Trump lost the election and he simply cannot face it, but the frightening part is that he’ll fire any official who tells the truth, leaving Americans to wonder exactly how this will all end. It’s unlikely that Trump will leave quietly, so keeping the country in turmoil will be his goal for the next 60 days.
Twitter had a quick response to Trump’s dishonest claims. Read some of their comments below:
