Donald's speech Trump before the North Carolina Republican Party on Saturday night was a reminder of the danger posed by the former president in undermining the American electoral system by attempting to reaffirm yourself as kingmaker on the stage national. His speech to party supporters was a familiar screed to anyone watching his 2020 campaign rallies. He attacked thePresident Joe Biden's foreign policy maneuvers, claimed Biden was destroying the economy, insisted he deserved more credit for the rapid development of Covid-19 vaccines, and argued that the radical left and cancellation of culture destroy America 's freedoms. But it's his continued campaign of disinformation about the November presidential contest that has been most disturbing - in part because the past few months have proven that Trump's lies are now accepted as gospel by a majority of Republicans. At a time when QAnon supporters and online forums supporting Trump have presented the deadly military coup in Myanmar as a remedy which should happen in the United States so Trump can be reinstated, recen Polls show a majority of Republicans believe the 2020 election was stolen despite the fact that there is no evidence of widespread election fraud. And the former president continued to stoke these flames of disinformation on Saturday night, declaring that the 2020 election will be considered the crime of the century. He praised the Republican senators from the state of Arizona who forced a mock audit of the 2020 election results of this state's largest county and praised Pennsylvania and Georgia state lawmakers who are following the example by exploring other recounts and audits of their election results. Republicans are inspired audit in troubled Arizona We 're not going to have a country - if you don ' t have electoral integrity, and if you don't have strong s our country can be run like a dictatorship and that's what they would like to do, Trump said. They want to shut you up. They want to silence your voice. Remember, I am not the one trying to undermine American democracy. I'm the one trying to save her.

(The law in Texas was on the verge of passage until Democrats organized a late night walkout which deprived the House of the quorum to adopt it before the end of the session legislative). Trump's remarks came amid revelations on Saturday that Mark Meadows, his former White House chief of staff, pushed the Ministry of Justice in itsboss 'in the last weeks in power to investigate baseless conspiracy theories and fraud allegations regarding the 2020 presidential election, according to documents obtained by CNN and first reported by The New York Times. The emails from Meadows - who was in public in North Carolina on Saturday night - were just another example of the Trump administration's overbreadth and blatant disregard for the ex-president for democracy. Trump as GOP Kingmaker On Saturday night, Trump attempted to present himself as the GOP Kingmaker, supporting Republican Representative Ted Budd in the race for the US Senate as he said he didn't want many people running Trump suggested that his support of Budd would immediately wipe out the field of Republicans vying to replace r eliminatedinant three terms of Senator Richard Burr in one of the Democrats 'most targeted pickup seats . The former president said he waited until his stepdaughter Lara Trump, whom he invited on stage, decided she did not want to run for the seat. Caucus, won Trump's loyalty in part by being one of 147 House Republicans who voted against the certification of the 2020 election result on January 6. be punished by the loud base of the GOP. The participants in the GOP convention of this state booed Governor Brian Kemp, who refused to help Trump overturn election results. They also censored Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for standing up to Trump, with members calling it a breach of constitutional duty, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Trump has already approved Rep. GOP Jody Hice , who embraced his electoral lies, to run against Raffensperger. Anti-Trump Republicans Speak Out While Trump still enjoys a strong grip on the Republican Party and flirting with the possibility of another run for the White House in 2024, a small but increasingly assertive group of anti-Trump Republican leaders are speaking out to fight his election lies. He also faces hurdles in getting his post as social media platforms continue to debate how they should deal with his falsehoods. In recognition of Trump's dangerous rhetoric, Facebook announced this week that Trump will stay on the line.hanged from that platform until at least January 7, 2023 - two years after his initial suspension - and that he will then assess the circumstances to see if he should be allowed to return. On Friday, the company said that once the two years have passed, it will turn to experts to assess whether the risk to public safety has decreased. We will assess external factors, including cases of violence, restrictions peaceful assembly and other signs of civil unrest. If we determine that there is still a serious risk to public safety, we will extend the restriction for a set period of time and continue to reassess until that risk has receded . Trump called the move an insult to the 75 (million) record-setting people who voted for him: They should not be allowed to get away with this censorship and this silence, he said. said Friday in a communique. On Saturday night, he mocked Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, claiming he begged to come to the White House with his wife. Prominent Republicans have increasingly spoken out against the damage done by Trump's lies about the election, including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who was later ousted from her No.3 position in the Republican House leadership, and former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. Some, like Virginia Barbar's former representative at Comstock, predicted that Trump would continue to lose votes as he continued his election farce. It 's fading as a number, Comstock told CNN's Pamela Brown on Newsroom on Saturday before Trump spoke. John Bolton, Trump's former national security adviser, told Brown it was ridiculous that Trump, some reports said, told those around him he will be reinstated in the White House later cthis year. The reinstatement theory that Trump shared with his aides was first reported by Maggie Haberman of the New York Times last week. He is not going to be reinstated in August. He lost the election. People have to face this and accept the reality that he was an unpopular candidate and was not re-elected Bolton said on Newsroom on Saturday. Like Comstock, Bolton said Trump's influence in the GOP was diminishing and warned that Republican candidates could face consequences for supporting the former president's disinformation campaign. The lies he tells are not only damaging to the country. They are particularly damaging to Republicans, and I think we need to understandtake that we will be anathematized by our opponents if we don't make it clear that we think the kinds of things Trump has said are just crazy, Bolton said.
