When will these RINOs learn that going against the Former President is a recipe for utter disaster — especially when they repeat the Big Lie that somehow the 2020 presidential election wasn’t rigged (because it was).
On Monday, Trump released a statement to his Save America PAC blasting Sen. Mike Rounds for saying the 2020 election was decided fairly.
Rounds, a Republican from South Dakota, said during an interview on ABC News’s This Week on Sunday the 2020 election was “fair, as fair as we’ve seen” despite the evidence of widespread voter fraud often publicized by Trump.
“While there were some irregularities, there were none of the irregularities which would have risen to the point where they would have changed the vote outcome in a single state,” Rounds said.
Remember when the ballot counters in Georgia mysteriously went home because they were “tired?”
Rounds argued that lawmakers did their “due diligence” by investigating Trump’s claims and turned up no evidence of systemic fraud. He said Republicans should drop unfounded claims to the contrary.
“We simply did not win the election, as Republicans, for the presidency,” Rounds said.
“As a part of our due diligence, we looked at over 60 different accusations made in multiple states…The election was fair, as fair as we've seen. We simply did not win the election, as Republicans, for the presidency,” GOP Sen. Mike Rounds says. https://t.co/RWOXLxux1e pic.twitter.com/nk7mE8xVsc

That’s his death knell!
Asked if he would support Trump if he ran for president again, Rounds replied, “I will take a hard look at it.”
On Monday, Trump fired back in a statement saying “‘Senator’ Mike Rounds of the Great State of South Dakota just went woke on the Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020.”
Trump repeated the overwhelming truth about fraud in swing states he “lost” and asked if Rounds is “crazy or just stupid?”
“Even though his election will not be coming up for 5 years, I will never endorse this jerk again.”
Trump said “RINOs” like Rounds “are allowing the Democrats to destroy our Nation!”

Rounds was reelected to a second six-year term in South Dakota last year by a margin of over 30 points.
The South Dakota RINO can sit comfortably now but when Trump assumes office again, he’s in for a rude awakening.
