Donald Trump has expressed his irritation at politicians such as Mitch McConnell who congratulated Joe Biden after the electoral college voted to further cement the Democrats’ win. But Trump has not thrown in the towel, and says it’s “too soon to give up!”
Trump took to his social media of choice, Twitter, on Wednesday, venting his anger at the top Republican senator’s words, according to a report by RT. “Mitch, 75,000,000 VOTES, a record for a sitting President (by a lot). Too soon to give up. Republican Party must finally learn to fight. People are angry!” he wrote.
The remark from Trump came in response to a statement made by McConnell on Tuesday in which he acknowledged Biden’s win after the electoral college vote, congratulating him and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. “The Electoral College has spoken,” McConnell said, noting that “as of this morning, our country has a president-elect and a vice president-elect” even though “many millions of us had hoped the presidential election would yield a different result.”
McConnell has reportedly privately warned fellow Republican senators against challenging the election results, urging them to not dispute the Electoral College decision during the upcoming joint session of Congress to confirm the results. The session is scheduled to take place on January 6. The words of the Senate majority leader have angered Trump’s supporters, with the most hardcore going so far as to accuse McConnell of being a “traitor.”
“McConnell just wants power, influence, & money. He is willing to sell America to get what he wants. McConnell is a traitor to American Patriots,” Trump campaign attorney Lin Wood said.
The Trump campaign appears poised to stick this out for the next month as things continue to unravel. At this point, though, the division between the left and right has never been wider. No republican will accept a Biden presidency and not democrat will accept another four years of Trump.
The time to wake up to this division is now. Be aware of what’s happening but don’t get sucked in. Stay the course, stay prepared, and know the real-world ramifications of either one of these two being inaugurated next month. Either way, there will be consequences.
