Ever since Trump launched legal battles challenging the results of the 2020 presidential election, the president has been constantly attacked in the media. CNN anchor Brianna Keilar accused Trump of "undermining democracy," while her colleague Jake Tapper slammed what he called Trump's "clownish failed" "coup" and Anderson Cooper compared the president's actions to those of a "dictator."
During an exchange with reporters on Thursday, President Trump appeared to put such worries to bed.
When one reporter asked if he would leave the White House if the Electoral College votes for Biden, Trump responded, "Certainly I will, and you know that.”
On Friday, Greenwald slammed the media's weekslong totalitarianism scare in a series of Twitter messages.
Same way they spent 3 years screeching Mueller was coming to expose and arrest the criminal Trump/Russia ring. Then -- after Mueller closed his investigation saying he found *no evidence* to prove it & charged *nobody* with conspiring with Russia -- insisted they were right.— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) November 27, 2020
Greenwald was referring to the Russia investigation headed by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who concluded there was no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign despite media hype throughout the first three years of Trump's presidency.
