Trump Says it Was his Decision to Describe the 2020 Election as ‘Rigged’

Trump Says it Was his Decision to Describe the 2020 Election as ‘Rigged’ – On Sunday, Donald Trump, the former President, expressed his lack of respect for both lawyers and campaign members who informed him of his loss in the 2020 presidential election. He emphasized that it was his own choice to embrace the belief that the election had been manipulated.

“In many cases, I didn’t respect them,” Trump said during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” when asked why he decided to ignore his lawyers and advisers who told him he lost the 2020 election to Joe Biden. “But I did respect others. I respected many others that said the election was rigged.”

The leading candidate in the GOP presidential primary, Trump, is confronting charges connected to his attempts to overturn the 2020 election outcome. In the federal case, prosecutors pointed out that Trump’s own lawyers consistently informed him of his election loss. Trump’s campaign faced numerous defeats in their attempts to contest the 2020 election results through various lawsuits, which were dismissed due to their groundless conspiracy theories.

When questioned about how he arrived at the belief that the election was rigged, Trump maintained that it was a decision he made independently. “You called some of your outside lawyers — you said they had crazy theories. Why were you listening to them? Were you listening to them because they were telling you what you wanted to hear?” NBC host Kristen Welker asked.

“You know who I listen to? Myself. I saw what happened. I watched that election, and I thought the election was over at 10 o’clock in the evening,” Trump said. “It was my decision. But I listened to some people. Some people said that,” he added later. The ongoing legal challenges surrounding former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results are shedding light on the complex web of events that followed that historic election. 

Trump, currently a leading contender in the GOP presidential primary, faces indictments related to these efforts. The federal case against him underscores the repeated advice from his own lawyers that he had lost the election, while his campaign’s numerous lawsuits attempting to challenge the results were dismissed as baseless.
