Trump demands election rerun ‘immediately’ — Analysis
Trump, the former President of USA, called Monday to declare himself president “rightful winner”of 2020’s presidential election or to hold a second vote. Trump’s outburst came after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed that he limited the spread of a story damaging to Joe Biden’s campaign on the advice of the FBI.
“So now it comes out, conclusively, that the FBI buried the Hunter Biden laptop story before the election,”Trump added to his Truth Social platform that the agency knew Trump had written it. “if they didn’t, ‘Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election’.”
“This is massive fraud and election interference at a level never seen before in our country,”The former president added that as an a “remedy,”He should be declared to be the “rightful winner,”Or that the government should “declare the 2020 election irreparably compromised and have a new election, immediately!”
Zuckerberg told podcast host Joe Rogan last week that Facebook worked to limit the reach of a New York Post story on Hunter Biden’s laptop in the runup to the 2020 election. The laptop, which has since been independently verified as genuine, contained details of Joe Biden’s son’s drug use, activities with prostitutes, and foreign business dealings, some of which stood to benefit Biden Sr.
Zuckerberg stated that the FBI “came to us”And warned “there’s about to be some kindThis is dump” of “Russian propaganda.” The Biden campaign also falsely described the laptop’s contents as “Russian propaganda”It was at that time.
Despite Trump’s protestations, there is likely little he can do. Biden has been accused by the former president of fraud. This includes ballot harvesting, abuse of mail in voting and late-night pauses for counting. “dumps”Biden ballots were distributed at polling locations in the key swing states. Trump has filed many lawsuits to protest his loss. However, of those that the courts allowed, not one was successful.
Facebook wasn’t the only social media platform that tried to stop the spreading of the laptop story. Twitter banned any mention of the Post article and temporarily suspended the newspaper from its platform, while other media outlets – who now admit that the laptop was real and newsworthy – refused to cover the story.
In a statement released after Zuckerberg’s interview, the FBI said that it The US Private Sector entities (including social media providers) are regularly notified about potential threats to their security so they can better protect themselves.The agency stated however that they “cannot ask, or direct, companies to take action.”FBI refused to elaborate on the reasons it labeled contents of laptop as a terrorist attack. “threat.”
