Ignoring The Insurrection He Incited, Trump Says There Would Have Been “A Revolution” if Democrats Lost 2020 Election
Donald Trump lost the 2020 election and it wasn’t really all that close. In the end, Joe Biden received 7 million more votes than the incumbent president. Biden also won the electoral college by the same margin, 306-232, that Trump did in the 2016 election.
Still, Trump could not accept the results and stirred up his supporters for 2 months. This stirring eventually led to an insurrection on the US Capitol on January 6th. Trump conveniently forgot about the insurrection during a recent interview with Lisa Boothe. The 45th president told the Fox News host that Democrats would have had a “revolution” if Democrats lost in 2020.
The former president told Booth, “If you look at what happened in the election, Mitch McConnell should’ve fought. You know, he did nothing. He should’ve fought. They should’ve fought. That could never have, that could never have happened to a Democrat. What happened to us with the presidential election could never have happened to the Democrats. You would have had a revolution if the tables were turned, you would have literally had a revolution. And guys like Mitch McConnell, they don’t fight.”
Kind words from Pres. Trump about my new podcast, “The Truth with Lisa Boothe.” He was my first guest! Such an honor! 🇺🇸

Trump also continued to push the lie that the election was stolen from him. He continued:
“We had a great election and we won and they took it away. It was a rigged election. Cause as you know, we won the first one, but we did much better in the second one. So people always say, Oh, what do you mean you did better? I say, we did much better, almost 75 million votes. And that’s the votes that we know about. And it was a really a terrible thing. I mean, it was really an unfair thing to the people that support us.”
