Trump proposal of ‘cessation’ of The constitution draws several rebukes from the Republican Party

Donald Trump’s proposal this weekend that the US Constitution should be terminated in response to his baseless claims that the 2020 election was stolen painted heavily muted Republican response, latest sign that many Republican Party officials remain reluctant to take on in former president, even if challenges fundamental principles of the country.

Trump online messages on saturday – including message in in which he wrote that “AN UNPRECEDENTED FRAUD REQUIRES UNPRECEDENTED TREATMENT!” – represents a significant escalation in his attacks on American institutions and democratic norms, one which, according to scientists, should be taken into account as sign of how far is he willing to go to recover power.

“Great scam of this type and size allows for termination of all rules rules and articles even those found in Constitution, Trump posted on Social platform “Pravda”. “Our great The “Founders” do not want and will not put up with fake and fraudulent elections!”

But only a handful of Republican legislators joined White House and Democrats in condemning Trump’s claims. Representatives for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-California) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) did not respond. on Sunday for inquiries for comment.

Last month, McCarthy announced that Republicans will read every word of Constitution out loud on in floor of Home when the Republican Party takes control of camera in January.

Some GOP legislators who were interviewed on sunday political shows about Trump latest the message said they disagree with in former the president. However, most are still hesitant to say that they will oppose Trump if he becomes the Republican presidential candidate in 2024.

Representative David Joyce (Republic of Ohio), Chairman of The Republican Management Group declined to answer directly When asked on ABC’s This Week about Trump’s comments, he said he “didn’t have a habit of of Speaking out on his tweet du jour” when Trump was in office. Under pressure from host George Stephanopoulos, Joyce said that “support whoever the Republican nominee was,” but didn’t think Trump “could get it.”

“Well, first off he doesn’t have – he doesn’t have ability suspend the Constitution,” Joyce said. “You know says a lot of of things, but that doesn’t mean it will ever happen.”

Lawrence H. Tribe, constitutional law professor at Harvard Law School, said there was a legitimate intellectual debate among constitutional scholars about whether flaws are in the founding documents of the nation are so fundamental that should to be new constitutional convention.

But what is Trump doing? in it’s “not debate, it’s destruction,” Tribe said. in Interview. “What he does is openly scream in desperation that’s all it’s worth in in way of he becomes everythingpowerful should be swept away.”

Trump last month announced his re-election campaign for president, after a series of Trump-backed candidates lose key race in midterm elections, which complicates questions within the Republican Party about how navigate their relationship with in former the president.

Although Tribe acknowledged that Trump said many outrageous things that should does not always attract attention, he does not believe in it latest statement should be brushed off, especially after Trump’s unsubstantiated claims about the 2020 election led to the US Capitol being stormed by a mob of Trump supporters. on January 6, 2021 in attempt to stop certification of Joe Biden’s presidential campaign win.

“This is a typical statement. This is sorting of says quiet part out loud – that he has no reverence for country, for anyone but yourself,” Tribe said. “It like saying: “You want see an uprising? Sick show you are a rebellion. Sick just break it all up.’ ”

Trump defenders on Sunday moved to Tampa down controversy. Republican operative close to the ex-president, who spoke on condition of anonymity for discussion private conversations, claimed post not literally advocate or call for termination of the Constitution.

When asked to clarify how Trump, at least, did not advocate for termination of the Constitution, the operative said: “He is comparing of unprecedented nature of Big tech intervention in 2020 election in favor of Joe Biden with unprecedented act of termination of the Constitution,” assuming without evidence that technology platforms tipped the scales for Biden in 2020.

Trump posts on Saturday came the day after Twitter. new owner Elon Musk said he would expose how Twitter involved in “Suppression of free speech” in in run-up for the 2020 elections. But his “Twitter files” are not show what tech the giant obeyed the will of democrats.

Some members of the Republican Party were stronger in their reproaches of Trump’s comments. On CBS’s Face the Nation, Rep. Michael Turner (R-Ohio) said he “absolutely” condemns Trump’s remarks, but stressed that there is a long political process to go through before Trump can be considered a 2024 front.runner.

“I strongly disagree with Trump’s statement made. Trump has made you know a thousand statements in which I disagree with,” Turner said. He added that voters “will certainly take note of the statement like it’s when they evaluate a candidate.”

Trump’s comments drew a stern rebuke from the White House and several Democrats as well as Republicans. who fallen from grace in their party for their longstanding criticism of Trump. Representatives of Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) named Trump enemy of Constitutionand Adam Kinzinger (right of Illinois) questioned how their fellow Republicans could continue support his.

“FROM former The President calls for throw apart from the constitution, none conservative can legally support him, and no supporter can be called a conservativeKinzinger tweeted on sundaywhen tagging in his message is processed by Twitter of McCarthy, as well as representatives Alice Stefanik (RN.Y.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). “This is crazy. Trump hates the constitution.”

Congressman-elect Mike Lawler (RN.Y.) endorsed several other Republicans in their responses to Trump saying it is generally time to look ahead and not re-trial the 2020 election.

“The constitution is set for a reason to protect rights of every American. So I certainly don’t support [Trump’s] language or this feeling,” Lawler said. on CNN “State of Union.” “I think former It would be wise for the president to focus on in future if he’s going run for the president again”.

Rep. Hakim Jeffreys (DN.Y.), who is set become a democratic minority leader in January, shrugged off Trump’s comments off as another “extraordinary” statement from former president and ultimately identity crisis for Republican Party.

“I thought it was a strange statement, but the Republicans will have to work out their problems with in former president and decide if they break up with him and go back to some semblance of reasonableness or continue to lean towards extremism, not just of Trump, but of Trumpism,” Jeffreys said. on “This Week” on ABC.

Several leading Republicans, including former Vice President Mike Pence – made rare reproaches of Trump recently after lunch with White nationalist Nick Fuentes and rapper Yes, both of who has history of anti-Semitic remarks.

On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu said he thought Trump “probably understands” that the dinner had crossed the line, but was hesitant to blame Trump or his rhetoric. for a rise in anti-Semitism. He instead accused social media for reinforcing such divisions.

“There are many, many blessings of the age of the internet, but it’s coming also with curse. And the curse is polarization,” Netanyahu said. on “Meet the Press” on NBC. According to him, anti-Semitism is “the most ancient hatred, as I say, one of the oldest hatred of humanity. It was wrong then this wrong currently. But he has an extra life, I guess in United States and in Another countries aged of Internet.”
