When being banned from #Facebook and Twitter after his followers marched into the US Capitol, Donald Trump eventually created his own network, Truth Social, and said in April 2022 after a rocky launch: “Hello Again! #COVFEFE. Trump is indicating that he would run for president again in 2024 despite having yet to accept defeat to Joe Biden.
And with the midterm elections on Tuesday, he is intensifying the voter conspiracy theories he has used ever since the 2016 election, which he won, and boosted after his defeat four years later. An AFP review of the former president’s over 1,200 contacts over the previous 58 days revealed that Trump posted about 100 pieces on Truth Social that questioned the legitimacy of US elections.
“Let’s go again here!” On November 1, Trump shared a false headline about Pennsylvania votes, a swing state that he lost to Biden but that might next week determine if Republicans regain the Senate. “Made up election!” Trump continued.
The strategies are similar to his 2020 strategy, in which he constantly tweeted before the election claiming mail-in votes were full of fraud. Several court cases have now reached different conclusions. However, experts warn that such false information might erode voter faith as Americans cast their ballots in the first national election after the Capitol uprising on January 6, 2021.
