Marjorie Taylor Greene reveals she spoke to Donald Trump
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene announced on Saturday that she had a ‘great call’ with former President Donald Trump, who gave her his support despite the recent backlash against the controversial Georgia lawmaker. In a long statement posted to Twitter, Greene claimed that the American people are ‘absolutely 100% loyal’ to 'all-time favorite POTUS' Trump and that she ‘won’t back down’ as she battles against the ‘enemy within’.
Greene, the first person to serve in Congress and openly support the QAnon conspiracy theory, continued to blast Democrats over the coronavirus shutdowns and Black Lives Matter protests as she claimed they had failed to protect the American people.
She branded the Democrats a ‘never-ending blood thirsty mob’ as compared herself to Trump due to the recent criticism she has faced.
Trump's support comes as Greene faces mounting calls to resign after it emerged she berated fellow freshman Congresswoman Cori Bush in a hallway and footage surfaced of her saying 'gangs control' black and Hispanic men.
Earlier this week, video also emerged of her harassing a Parkland mass shooting survivor in 2019 and Facebook posts were unearthed in which she showed support for executing top Democrats.
‘I had a GREAT call with my all-time favorite POTUS, President Trump!’ she wrote. ‘I’m so grateful for his support and more importantly the people of this country are absolutely 100% loyal to him because he is 100% loyal to the people and America First.’
'You can never beat him because We the People have his back,' she claimed before mounting her attack on the Democrats.
'The blood thirsty media and the socialists hate America. Democrats are attacking me now just like they always attack President Trump.
'I can promise you this. I won’t back down. I’ll never apologize. And I’ll always keep fighting for the people. For me, it’s America First!!!
'Any elected politician that isn’t putting America First doesn’t deserve their position or the people’s trust.'
Greene then complained that the Democrats are guilty of 'America Last policies' which are for 'sell outs and losers'.
'In these divisive times, real leaders must be determined and strong to be able to withstand the rabid mob that preys on weakness in order to get their way, which is to destroy our country,' she claimed.
'Yes, there is an enemy within. And that enemy is a poisonous rot of socialist policies and America last sell outs who are pompous hypocrites that believe they are untouchable elites.'
Greene's Twitter rant continued even further as she accused Democrats of bring in 'devastating shutdowns' while they 'wined and dined maskless'.
Greene has repeatedly pushed unfounded conspiracy theories including that late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was replaced by a body double; the 2017 Las Vegas massacre that left 58 dead was organized by Democrats; and that there is no evidence a hijacked plane hit the Pentagon on 9/11.
Romney blasts news of Trump call with Taylor Greene: 'Lies of a feather flock together'
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Saturday blasted news that Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene had spoken by phone with former President Trump amid growing backlash over the Georgia Republican's past remarks. “Lies of a feather flock together: Marjorie Taylor Greene’s nonsense and the 'big lie' of a stolen election,” Romney tweeted.
Romney has been quick to condemn Trump and his baseless allegations of widespread election fraud. He was the only GOP senator who voted to convict Trump during his first impeachment trial last year.
His tweet Saturday came in response to messages posted by Greene in which she said she had a “GREAT” phone call with Trump while pushing back on criticism from fellow members of Congress.
Greene tweeted after the call with Trump that she is “so grateful for his support.”
I had a GREAT call with my all time favorite POTUS, President Trump!
I’m so grateful for his support and more importantly the people of this country are absolutely 100% loyal to him because he is 100% loyal to the people and America First.
Members of both parties have condemned Greene for peddling conspiracy theories and supporting posts on Facebook before entering office that had called for violence against Democrats.
Democrats have begun pushing for hearings in order to remove Greene from the House.
Investigators in Manhattan looking into Donald Trump's tax affairs are becoming increasingly interested in the president's oldest son, according to a report. Donald Trump Jr has been running the Trump Organization alongside his brother Eric, 37, while their father was in the White House.
Sen. Mitt Romney predicted Tuesday that former President Donald Trump would easily win the Republican presidential nomination if he seeks the White House again in 2024. In a New York Times-DealBook virtual interview, the Utah Republican said he was “sure” the former president would play a role in the GOP in the coming years — assessing that Trump has “by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party.”
Dominion, the voting machine company at the center of baseless election fraud claims by supporters of former President Donald Trump, filed a lawsuit against the MyPillow CEO and his company on Monday for more than $1.3 billion. In a 115-page complaint filed in D.C. federal court, Dominion alleges that Lindell’s conspiracy claims are not the result of an earnest belief in election fraud, but a ploy to sell pillows.
Joe Biden is set to mark the latest tragic milestone of Covid deaths in the US on Monday night, with a candlelit commemoration and moment of silence for the 500,000 who will have lost their lives. With the heart-wrenching landmark approaching, the White House is preparing for a sunset ceremony focused on those who have died and their grieving loved ones. With his wife, Jill Biden, Vice-president Kamala Harris and her husband, Doug Emhoff, by his side, the president is expected to echo the commemoration held for Covid victims at the Lincoln Memorial the night before his inauguration. He said then: “To heal we must remember.”
