(FiveNation.com)- Eric Trump, son of President Donald Trump, warned on Tuesday that Republican lawmakers who do not object to the Electoral College results will be primaried before the next elections. The prominent businessman and support of the America First agenda issued the warning ahead of the joint session of Congress on Wednesday, which ultimately saw the Electoral College vote certified.
It looks like a lot of Republican legislators are about to get primaried.
“I will personally work to defeat every single Republican Senator / Congressman who doesn’t stand up against this fraud – they will be primaried in their next election and they will lose,” Trump said.

Joe Biden officially became the president-elect on January 6, after several Republican lawmakers backed out from their pledge to object to Electoral College votes on the grounds of fraud. Republican legislators were scared off after scenes of violence on Capitol Hill when a small contingent of protesters began fighting with law enforcement and stormed the Capitol building.
Before the unrest occurred, roughly a dozen Republican Senators and around 140 House Republicans said that they would object to the results – a number that may have been substantial enough to trigger 10 days of debate and opportunities to present evidence of fraud.
Rioters pretty much ensured that wouldn’t happen.
Eric Trump’s warning to Republican legislators likely wasn’t made without considerable thought, given the Trump family’s notorious commitment to fighting for the Republican Party.
President Trump tweeted on January 1 that he would like to see South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem primary Senator John Thune, after the Republican lawmaker pledged to vote to certify the Electoral College vote.
I hope to see the great Governor of South Dakota @KristiNoem, run against RINO @SenJohnThune, in the upcoming 2022 Primary. She would do a fantastic job in the U.S. Senate, but if not Kristi, others are already lining up. South Dakota wants strong leadership, NOW!
