(FiveNation.com)- In a statement released on Sunday, former President Donald Trump called for a public debate on the facts surrounding the 2020 presidential election and voter fraud.
Arguing that the American corporate news media “cannot stand” that so many Americans know that the 2020 election “was rigged and stolen,” Trump complains in the statement that the “Fake News” continues to use phrases like “The Big Lie” or “unsubstantiated facts” as a way to “demean the real results.”
Well, he’s right about that. Search any news article on voter fraud or the 2020 election, and somewhere the writer will include a phrase like “President Trump falsely claimed” or “disproven claims of voter fraud.” They do it so consistently, one wonders if they have a style guide specifically designed for articles about the 2020 election.
Trump then said he was “willing to challenge” newspaper publishers or politicians to a debate. He said the “real Big Lie” was the election irregularities and voter fraud that happened in “certain states.”
Turning his attention to the House Select Committee on January 6, Trump said the “highly partisan” “Unselect” committee refuses to examine whether the election irregularities might have caused the “January 6th protest.”
Former President Trump singled out Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, New Hampshire, and New Mexico. He accused the states’ Democrat Secretaries of State of unconstitutionally changing state voting laws before the 2020 election without legislative approval. He argued that those changes made it “virtually impossible” for Republicans to win.
Mr. Trump concluded his statement by saying that a debate on the 2020 election would be “a ratings bonanza for television.”
Of course, no such debate will take place.
The corporate news media and the Democrat Party are fully invested in portraying any accusations of election irregularities as nothing more than conspiracy theories. They have no interest in defending their narrative, only in protecting it.
