Trump Compares His Election Loss To ‘Act of War’, Urges GOP Senators To ‘Fight To The Death’

President Donald Trump on Saturday ramped up his desperate attempts to upend the 2020 election results by comparing his election defeat to an “act of war” and urged GOP senators in a tweet to fight to the death to prevent President-elect Joe Biden’s from becoming president.

In his tweet, Trump blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other Republicans, claiming they are doing “NOTHING” to help him stay in power.

“If a Democrat Presidential Candidate had an Election Rigged & Stolen, with proof of such acts at a level never seen before, the Democrat Senators would consider it an act of war, and fight to the death,” Trump tweeted.

He also blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other Republicans, claiming they are doing “NOTHING” to help him stay in power.

“Mitch & the Republicans do NOTHING, just want to let it pass. NO FIGHT!” the president complained.

The president’s comment comes as Congress prepares to certify the Electoral College vote on Jan. 6. Thus far, no Republicans in the upper chamber have definitively said they will back a challenge that’s being pushed by several GOP members in the House, though newly-elected Alabama Sen.-elect Tommy Tuberville (R) has suggested he may back the challenge.

As Trump ramps up his pressure campaign to convince Tuberville to join his House allies, Senate Republicans are hoping to avoid a messy fight over the Electoral College results that would further damage their party for years to come.
