Donald Trump rage-quits new NPR interview
NPR released video today of the phone interview with Trump. Inskeep confronts him with various facts refuting the claims of fraud, all of which Trump continues to deny.
Six minutes in, Inskeep asked if Trump will only endorse Republicans who repeat his lies about election fraud. He gave a lengthy answer, which concluded:
"People have no idea how big this issue is, and they don't want it to happen again. It shouldn't be allowed to happen, and they don't want it to happen again.
"And the only way it's not going to happen again is you have to solve the problem of the presidential rigged election of 2020."
Inskeep began another question, but Trump had had enough. He interrupted and said: "So, Steve, thank you very much, I appreciate it."
The NPR host continued but was told Trump had hung up. "He's gone? OK," Inskeep says.
Trump is still going on about his election lies today, after Joe Biden defeated him in the 2020 presidential election. No evidence of electoral fraud has ever been found.
Despite this and his role in the Jan. 6 riot, the 75-year-old Trump remains eligible to run for president in 2024.
He has yet to announce if he'll run again.
