Earlier this week a reporter for the Huffington Post noted that Sen. Chuck Grassley said he is focused on the future and declined to comment on President Donald J. Trump’s claim of a rigged election. Grassley reportedly said it’s “not important.”

President Trump, however, just put out a statement on Thursday reminding Republicans of their duty to correct the election and the urgency such an action demands.

Trump addressed previous comments he made saying if 2020 is not fixed, Republicans will not vote in 2022 or 2024.

“They may not have the incentive to vote if the election process is not fully remedied, and quickly,” Trump wrote. “It was the Crime of the Century. We are working on solving that problem every day — it will be done! People do not want to spend their time and money to have a SCAM like that happen again.”

Grassley voted to certify the 2020 Presidential Election and said in January he was looking forward to seeing what Joe Biden’s agenda would be. Grassley also said Trump could not lead the Republican Party and essentially referred to Mike Lindell as a liar.

Yet Trump maintains 2020 was a fraudulent election.

It’s just one more reason Trump’s endorsement of Grassley makes zero sense when it comes to policy.
