It's been more than a year, but former President Donald Trump still hasn't gotten over losing the 2020 presidential election.
In a statement released on Thursday, the twice-impeached former one-term president complained that no one had yet taken up his offer to hold a public debate about the supposedly "rigged" election he lost to President Joe Biden.
"Has it been at all noticed that I offered to debate anybody, on television or otherwise, about the RIGGED Presidential Election of 2020," Trump's statement began. "This was a publicly stated challenge -- I have been called a 'ratings machine,' and therefore would be good for television economics—which have not been doing so well lately. With all the bravado out there, I have not had one credible person willing to stand up and debate me in order to defend the CROOKED election."
Trump then went on to again attack the House Select Committee investigating the January 6th riots at the United States Capitol, whom he accused of being too cowardly to debate him.
"So, after one month, a very public offer to debate, I have no takers -- not even the sleazebags you see on the January 6th Commission who speak with such fake reverence about the day," Trump said. "This is Cancel Culture. They think they got away with the Crime of the Century and they don’t want it to be talked about or discussed. Look at what has happened to our Country, and what a shame it is!”
