Trump a ‘permanent’ threat to the country

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) said on MSNBC’s “The Beat” on Friday that former President Donald Trump is an ongoing threat because he convinces millions of Americans not to trust our electoral system by claiming that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him.

Melber asked, “Why is it important that Trump, based on the evidence, knows he lost rather than possibly being wrong?”

Lofgren said: ‘Well, that goes to conscience of guilt, but he also used this fraudulent election scheme to stir up the crowd that we saw last night. So the fundraising he did on the lie, the commotion he created within the crowd, it was all part of the cry to nullify the election. The election is supposed to choose the next president, not the incumbents. As Liz said, he, on the morning of the 6th, planned to stay in power even if he lost the election. This has never happened in American history before. I think the threat continues for the country because he is convinced by the millions of people who trust him, who voted for him. He misled them into believing that the electoral system is not working for him to take power. It’s very dangerous.

Melber said, “I hope people listen to you. You said that very clearly, and it should be a basic requirement for the office.
