did the country — and himself — a favor by canceling the news conference he had scheduled for January 6. But the press statement he released on Thursday emphasized that the former President The president will never admit that he lost the 2020 election, no matter what the cost to the country or his supporters.
Mr. Trump’s statement raised a far-fetched “question” about the election in an allusion to massive fraud that he was never able to prove in court, before Congress, or in subsequent state audits. He asked how was it possible for Mr. Biden to lose “27 out of 27 House races,” but somehow miraculously get the most votes in US history without ending? ”
That may sound questionable, but all it proves is that election forecasters have done a terrible job predicting which House race is “subversive.” They predict Democrats will expand their House majority by winning conservative districts in the House. Elections are near, so traditionally conservative House districts have gone to the GOP. There is no reason to expect that the party that failed (albeit narrowly) to win the House, as the GOP did, would win the Electoral College.
That’s the pattern of Mr. Trump’s shifting election claims — appealing on the surface but easy to explain with the data we have. has reviewed in these pages a lot oftime. However, the former president still accused Democrats of causing “the real uprising, which took place on November 3.”
This rhetoric from Mr. Trump cost the Georgia Senate – allowing a progressive legislative attack – and led many Trump supporters to be indicted for violating the Capitol on Jan. 6. Trump won’t change, and Republicans who think a campaign to whitewash 2020 is the key to victory in 2022 will be lost again.
