This conspiracy came from nowhere.
But now it has the entire political world talking.
Now, Trump shot down this baseless conspiracy about the election.
As the world prepares to leave the tumult of 2020 behind, new conspiracies seem determined to follow Trump into the new year.
The newest one that is currently being debated is whether Trump is going to impose “martial law” and hold a new election “controlled by the military.”
This is the new narrative being promoted by those who want to inspire fear.
And President Trump is not standing for it.
This past Sunday, he shot down The New York Times for publishing a report that claimed he was going to impose martial law in order to overturn the election results.
His tweet stated:
“Martial law = Fake News. Just more knowingly bad reporting!”
The President has denied imposing martial law as a possibility, but the discussion rages on.
On Saturday, The New York Times stated that Trump asked about a suggestion made by his former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn that he deploy the military to “rerun” the election.
The Times did not clarify if Trump was on board with the idea or not, but they stated that White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and White House counsel Pat Cipollone vehemently opposed the idea.
And the Times isn’t the only one discussing a military run election.
Over the past couple of weeks, many high-profile conservatives have demanded that Trump impose martial law to overturn the results of the election.
A full-page ad in The Washington Times displayed Flynn’s tweet in which he argued that a new election was the only way to prevent a “shooting civil war” over the presidential race.
Flynn’s tweet read:
“Freedom never kneels except for God.”
There is no chance this will happen.
Donald Trump wisely rejected this foolish advice from Michael Flynn and dismissed the reports he was considering imposing martial law as fake news.
The President has multiple legal avenues to challenge the election results and the President has said on every occasion where he was asked that if they do not go his way he will leave the White House.
There is a very good chance that if Donald Trump does not succeed in reversing Joe Biden’s fraudulent election win that Donald Trump will seek to become the first President since Grover Cleveland in 1982 to win two nonconsecutive terms.
President Trump declaring martial law is a complete nonstarter and the idea is only being floated by troublemakers within the administration looking to make the President look bad.
And others support this narrative.
Virginia Republican state Senator Amanda Chase, agreed with Flynn:
“You know the question is, if we get into an extreme situation where we feel like the Democratic Party has committed treason, we really don’t have much of a choice but to suspend the Constitution and have a very limited focus on martial law as it pertains to election integrity, and votes, and securing the equipment that we used to vote to ensure we get to the bottom of what happened.”
No one knows what exactly will come from this discussion, but it is certain that it will change America no matter the official outcome.
