One thing you can say about Donald Trump: he is consistent.
If you remember in 2016, the very first contest of the Republican primary season, Trump lost in Iowa to Ted Cruz. Yet, according to Trump, he did not lose in Iowa. The election was stolen.
“Ted Cruz didn’t win Iowa, he stole it,” Trump (@realDonaldTrump) tweeted at the time. . “Bad!”
“Based on the fraud committed by Senator Ted Cruz during the Iowa caucus, either a new election should take place or Cruz results nullified,” Trump continued. Sound familiar?
Before deciding to run for office, Trump had even complained that he did not win an Emmy Award for his reality show, The Apprentice, because the voting was rigged against him.
Saying an election is ‘stolen’ and claiming ‘fraud’ is not new for Trump. It is actually pretty routine whenever he does not win. If he loses, it has to be because the vote was not fair. So we probably should not be surprised that, two years later, Trump is still claiming the last election was stolen. It’s just what he does. The odd thing is how many people still fall for it.
