December 4, 2022 – The Lincoln Project releases the following statement condemning Donald Trump’s call for the ‘termination of all rules…even those found in the Constitution’ and that he be illegally made President:
“After leading the violent January 6th, 2021 insurrection against the peaceful transfer of power, Trump’s statement is another grim reminder of his desire to destroy the Constitution, overthrow the rule of law, and ignore our democratic traditions to attain absolute power. He does not care for the nation, only his pursuit of power and money for himself and his family.
“Trump’s comments should have been immediately condemned by every Republican in the nation. Instead, lackeys like Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell again showed their weakness as leaders; too afraid to confront Trump for fear of his violent and furious base.
“Donald Trump and the MAGA movement must be defeated or the American experiment will come to a crashing end. Americans must join together, place their policy differences aside and confront the existential threat posed by Donald Trump and his anti-democracy supporters in 2024.”
The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
