Former President Donald Trump has called for the termination of the US Constitution’s rules regarding elections to overturn the results of the disputed 2020 presidential election following the emergence of evidence that social media sided with the Washington establishment to suppress negative reports about Joe Biden’s son Hunter ahead of the election.

Trump said on Saturday the founding fathers of the United States did not want “fraudulent elections” in the country.

Elon Musk released what he called the “Twitter Files” on Friday, delving into the company's decision to block the Hunter Biden laptop story. The posts focused on the controversy surrounding Biden’s son Hunter Biden and Twitter’s reaction limiting the spread of posts about it.

It was billed as a bombshell that exposed how Twitter engaged in “free speech suppression” in the critical run-up to the 2020 election.

“A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution,” Trump said in a Truth Social post.

“Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!” he continued.

Trump said the revelations show “MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION” from Big Tech, the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Party, asking if the 2020 election results should be thrown out and he should be declared the winner or if a new election should be held.

Trump believes that the election was rigged by the US establishment in favor of Biden. He has said that the 2020 presidential election was “the greatest Election Hoax in history.”

He previously accused Twitter and Facebook of helping Biden to win the controversial 2020 election.

Pulitzer Prize-winner American investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald has revealed that an axis of the CIA, Big Tech and the DNC-allied wing of the corporate media spread an absolute lie in the weeks before the 2020 presidential election to help Biden win the vote.

He wrote that “the CIA, Big Tech, the liberal wing of the corporate media and the Democratic Party” censored and suppressed “a series of major reports about then-presidential frontrunner Biden.

“Numerous examples of brute and dangerous censorship have emerged: the destruction by Big Tech monopolies of Parler at the behest of Democratic politicians at the time that it was the most-downloaded app in the country; the banning of the sitting president from social media; and the increasingly explicit threats from elected officials in the majority party of legal and regulatory reprisals in the event that tech platforms do not censor more in accordance with their demands,” Greenwald wrote.

“But the most severe episode of all was the joint campaign — in the weeks before the 2020 election — by the CIA, Big Tech, the liberal wing of the corporate media and the Democratic Party to censor and suppress a series of major reports about then-presidential frontrunner Joe Biden,” he added.

The New York Post published a story in October 2020, less than a month before Election Day, alleging that Hunter Biden used his influence to connect a Ukrainian businessman with his father while he was serving as vice president.

A laptop that allegedly was dropped off at a Delaware computer repair shop included evidence demonstrating Hunter Biden’s actions, former Trump attorney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told the Post.

Twitter took blocked users from sharing the link to the story on its platform.

Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms banned Trump from their services after protesters stormed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Last month, Musk reinstated Trump’s Twitter account, which was suspended over alleged incitement of violence.

Musk reinstated Trump’s account after conducting a poll asking users if they wanted the former president back on the platform. Slightly over 15 million Twitter users voted in the poll with 51.8% voting in favor of reinstatement.

Even with his account reinstated Trump said he sees “no reason” for returning to Twitter.

“I don’t see any reason for it, they have a lot of problems at Twitter, you see what’s going on,” Trump said.

The former president said he would stick with his new platform Truth Social, the app developed by his Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) startup, which he said had better user engagement than Twitter and was doing "phenomenally well".
