Despite posting it on his social media site Truth Social, former President Donald Trump has said that he never called for the termination of the United States Constitution.

The original remark from Trump was posted on Saturday night, after Elon Musk shared a series of tweets that showed his newly acquired company Twitter had purposefully hidden a New York Post story about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2020.

“Do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,” Trump wrote on Saturday.

But now, after receiving heavy backlash for the comments to terminate the Constitution, Trump has claimed in a new post from Monday that “The Fake News” is making up that he ever said it.

He continued, saying they are “trying to convince the American People that I said I wanted to ‘terminate’ the Constitution. This is simply more DISINFORMATION & LIES, just like RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, and all of their other HOAXES & SCAMS.”

He then continued to push his stolen 2020 election claims, saying, “steps must be immediately taken to RIGHT THE WRONG.”

Many were confused by the allegations from Trump, of which he presented no proof of the fraud he claimed was present.

Several high-ranking Republicans and even Musk have called out the president for suggesting the constitution should be thrown out.

Musk shared in a tweet that “The Constitution is greater than any President. End of story.”

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) tweeted “No honest person can now deny that Trump is an enemy of the Constitution.”

One Republican adviser close to the former president attempted to offer clarity to his comments while speaking with Yahoo News.

“He’s highlighting the unprecedented nature of Big Tech meddling in the 2020 election to benefit Joe Biden, just like how unprecedented of an act terminating some rules of the Constitution would be,” the Republican told Yahoo News.

Even still, many remain skeptical of the former president and whether or not he will continue to push his claims while campaigning for the 2024 Republican Presidential nominee.
