During a panel discussion on “Fox News Sunday,” Republican strategist Karl Rove slammed President Donald Trump as a “sore loser” over the president’s unprecedented attempts to upend the November election in the courts or by forcing Republican lawmakers to ignore the voters and declare him the winner.
Anchor Chris Wallace asked Rove if he expects President Trump to continue to contest the election past tomorrow and whether he believes trump either helping or hurting both himself and the country.
“Well, I believe that he will. I wouldn’t be surprised to see that maybe tomorrow there are attempts to disrupt the voting in the six contested states. I wouldn’t be surprised to see expressions of public support for the president’s position from Trump electors in states that he carried,” Rove said.
“I wouldn’t be surprised on January 6 — I fully expect that one senator and one representative, at minimum, that’s what’s required, can file a statement contesting the electoral college results. But I don’t see that it’s going to be overturned tomorrow, and I don’t see that it’s going to be overturned on January 6, ” he continued.
“As to your second question, it depends on — the answer to that depends upon what’s his goal? If his goal is to lay the predicate to come back in 2024 and run again, he’s helping himself at least gain the nomination. But I think in the long run, he’s not helping himself or the country. America likes comebacks, but they don’t like sore losers, and he is on the edge of looking like a sore loser and probably will look like it after January 6,” the former White House official said.
