President Donald Trump's eldest son on Monday warned that the United States is slipping into "tyranny" because his father lost the 2020 presidential election by more than 7 million votes.
Writing on Twitter, Donald Trump Jr. lamented that more wasn't being done to overturn the results of the 2020 election, even as his father's legal team suffers one massive defeat after another.
"Freedom is losing ground to tyranny very quickly... what’s truly scary though is how many are willing to allow it to happen," Trump Jr. wrote.
Trump Jr.'s tweet was instantly drowned in mockery, as being forced to leave office after losing an election is actually the opposite of "tyranny."
