Roy Blunt Urges Trump To Focus on 2022 Elections Instead of 2020

Share

Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) is encouraging former President Donald Trump to move on from the 2020 election and focus his energy on the upcoming midterm elections.

During an appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Blunt was asked if he thinks Trump believes that the election was stolen.

“I really can’t analyze whether he believes it or not,” Blunt responded. “I’m sure he believes that in a fair election, he couldn’t have possibly lost, and of course, he had the ability to go to court and prove whether that election was fair or not.”

However, the Missouri senator noted Trump’s campaign lost dozens of lawsuits challenging the results of the election.

Still, he said Trump is “an incredibly popular figure in our party.” He added, “I’d like to see him get focused on the 2022 elections. There are plenty of things for Republicans to be talking about.”

Finally, he said, “He could be incredibly helpful in 2022 if he gets focused on 2022 and the differences in the two political parties. The Biden agenda is an agenda that Republicans are going to be talking about, defining themselves based on our differences on things like what is infrastructure. There are a lot of things to talk about. I think 2022 has great potential to be an important and good year for Republicans. And I hope President Trump puts his energy in that effort.”

Trump has repeatedly made the unfounded claim that widespread fraud in the presidential election tilted the results in President Joe Biden’s favor.

And he reportedly believes that by August, he will be “reinstated” as president. There is no mechanism in the Constitution to reinstate a president.
