Trump Retweets Jerry Falwell’s Suggestion To Extend His Term By Two Years As Payback ‘For Failed Coup’




President Trump on Sunday retweeted a post from Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. that said Trump’s first term should be extended by two years as payback “for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup.”

Falwell was alluding to special counsel Robert Mueller’s recently completed investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“After the best week ever for @realDonaldTrump – no obstruction, no collusion, NYT admits @BarackObama did spy on his campaign, & the economy is soaring. I now support reparations-Trump should have 2 yrs added to his 1st term as payback for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup,” Falwell tweeted.



Trump’s retweet comes as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she is worried Trump may not accept the results of the 2020 election if Democrats do not beat him by a wide margin.

Trump followed up the retweet by alleging two years of his presidency were “stollen” that “we will never be able to get back.”

Trump’s retweet came after he attacked Democrats seeking to have Mueller testify about the report.

The president said Mueller shouldn’t testify because the report found that neither Trump nor his campaign conspired to collude with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election.
