Trump Appears To Call For Election Do-Over In Twitter Tirade Claiming Election Was ‘RIGGED’

President Donald Trump is not done yet trying to overturn the 2020 election. On Tuesday morning, Trump quote-tweeted actor Randy Quaid’s call for ‘an in-person-only-paper ballot re-vote’ to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. In his tweet, Trump seemed to urge party leaders to take note of the request, adding, ‘Are you listening Republicans?’ Neither the Constitution nor federal law provide for an election do-over, and the president has no power to command one.

Quaid, a staunch Trump supporter, is best known for playing the idiot cousin who blocks up a sewer with human waste in ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.’ Quaid made national news after being arrested in Canada by immigration officials, twice.

Trump also suggested that while his administration is cooperating with Joe Biden’s Transition team, it doesn’t mean Biden will be the next president.

Since Biden was projected to win the presidential election on Nov. 7, Trump has tried unsuccessfully to challenge the results in court while claiming without evidence that there was widespread voter fraud in the election.

The lawsuits have failed, and a growing number of Republicans have recognized Biden as the president-elect. A federal judge in Pennsylvania tossed out a Trump campaign lawsuit over the weekend, writing in a scathing opinion that the accusations were “unsupported by evidence.”

Since then, both Michigan and Pennsylvania, two of the states that Biden won and where the Trump campaign mounted legal challenges, certified their election results.
