WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Donald Trump is facing rebuke from both parties after calling for the “termination” of parts of the Constitution over his lie that the 2020 election was stolen.
Trump, who announced last month that he is running again for president, made the claim over the weekend on his Truth Social media platform.
Incoming House Democratic leader Hakeem Jeffries on Sunday described Trump’s statement as strange and extreme.
GOP Rep. Mike Turner of Ohio said he “vehemently” disagrees and condemns the remarks.
Both he and Republican Rep.-elect Mike Lawler of New York say the remarks should be a factor as their party decides who should lead them in 2024.
