“President Trump will remain in office. This Hail Mary attempt to remove him from the White House is an attack on all Americans who voted for him, ”Taylor Greene wrote in her post, which has since been reported by Twitter. “Democrats must be held accountable for the political violence inspired by their rhetoric.”
His tweet comes a week after pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol amid Congressional certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, resulting in the deaths of at least five people – including an officer of the US Capitol Police. The president, at a rally earlier today, urged his supporters to march to Capitol Hill and “show strength.”
After Congress resumed its certification process following the attack, Greene was one of 147 Congressional Republicans who still opposed the election results. She also drew criticism last week after video footage showed her, along with a handful of other House Republicans, refusing to wear a mask while taking shelter with other lawmakers amid the violence . At least three House Democrats have since tested positive for Covid-19.
Greene, a rookie elected last November, has already endorsed elements of the dangerous QAnon conspiracy theory and made Islamophobic comments. She won praise from Trump, who called her a “future Republican star.”
