Trump Zings Zuckerberg, Claims He is a ‘Criminal’ For…

Former President Donald Trump is almost certainly going to be running for the White House again in 2024, and the recent ramping up of his rhetoric has many wondering if he isn’t essentially on the campaign trail already.

Much of Trump’s latest narrative revolves around two moments in time:  The 2020 election and the January 6th select committee, the latter of which has become a real thorn in his side in recent days.

But that doesn’t mean he isn’t still pushing his belief that the 2020 election was stolen from him.  In fact, the former Commander in Chief lashed out at Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook this week, insisting that he had something to do with it.

Former President Donald Trump criticized Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s chief executive, in a statement. Trump said the $400 million donation that Zuckerberg made to local election offices last year makes him a “criminal.”

“Mark Zuckerberg, in my opinion, a criminal, is allowed to spend over $400 million and therefore able to change the course of a Presidential Election, and nothing happens to Facebook,” Trump said in an emailed statement to supporters.

Trump appeared to be referring to the $400 million that Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, donated to local election offices last year.

Trump has consistently insisted that the 2020 election was rigged against him, but numerous attempts to prove this by his legal team didn’t pass muster in the court system.

Facebook says that the money was used to make necessary adjustments in the wake of the COVID pandemic.
