Over the course of the last two days, Donald Trump has been busy railing against the FBI and Facebook after Mark Zuckerberg admitted that the site throttled the Hunter Biden “Laptop from Hell” story at the behest of the agency just ahead of the 2020 election.
The move has been declared election interference by the former President, who doubled down on his calls for a re-do election on account of the conspiracy.
“The Presidential Election was BADLY & IRREPARABLY TAINTED by the FBI’s FAKE description of the ‘Laptop from Hell’ to Facebook & the LameStream Media – & for MANY other reasons as well,” Trump posted at 1:46 a.m. on Tuesday.Advertisement - story continues below
“Declare the rightful winner, or hold a new Election, NOW! Our Country, which is failing badly, knows the ‘score,’ and will never accept Criminal Election Interference. The FBI just fired its Special Agent In Charge of this outrageous & very illegal assault on the Constitution of the United States of America!” he added.
Just a day earlier, on Monday, Trump has made a similar demand.
“So now it comes out, conclusively, that the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION knowing that, if they didn’t, “Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election.” This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country. REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately!” he posted on Truth Social.
In the hours after Trump’s statement, the Google Play store pulled Truth Social from its marketplace, which services over 40% of cellular phones nationwide, citing “moderation” concerns.
