Former President Donald Trump released a video decrying the return of COVID-19 mandates in certain areas and declared, “WE WILL NOT COMPLY!”

The Truth Social post went up Wednesday and said, “The left-wing lunatics are trying very hard to bring back COVID lockdowns and mandates with all of their sudden fear-mongering about the new variants that are coming.”
He noted the timing, stating, “Gee whiz, you know what else is coming? An election.”
“They want to restart the COVID hysteria so they can justify more lockdowns, more censorship, more illegal dropboxes, more mail-in ballots, and trillions of dollars in payoffs to their political allies heading into the 2024 election,” he added.
Trump then declared, “But to every COVID tyrant who wants to take away our freedom, hear these words, WE WILL NOT COMPLY, so don’t even think about it.”
This caused “We will not comply” to trend on X, formerly Twitter.
Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake supported the message stating, “Amen, Mr. President. WE WILL NOT COMPLY!”
Amen, Mr. President.
WE WILL NOT COMPLY! https://t.co/xuJAHVqlIk

They want you in chains. Not visible, but in chains. Electric cars, that can be traced and turned off by them. Electric heat, electronic currency, traceable phones, “cookies,” medical “passports,”masks pic.twitter.com/PLJwnYC1Tn
