During an interview on Friday, MyPillow CEO Michael Lindell said that President Donald Trump would remain president “for the next four years,” although Trump’s former advisor Kellyanne Conway said it looks like President-elect Joe Biden will “prevail” when he is appointed as the next president in January 2021.
“I would like word to spread that Donald Trump will be our president for the next four years,” Lindell said in an interview with Friday Fox News, adding that he was 100 percent sure of this. He spoke while demonstrating with “March for Trump” demonstrators, demanding that Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp help tilt the state’s election results in Trump’s favor.
Louis Lindell told Fox News that he spoke with former Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell earlier this week and claimed, “So I know firsthand. Powell, however, was fired from Trump’s legal team after he made allegations that Republican candidates were conspiring nationwide with Communist countries to fraudulently win their 2020 election races. It offered no evidence to support these allegations.
“I want people to know what was going on because the mainstream media will not show you,” Lindell said at the protest. “All the corruption, until everything opens up here and they see it, even the Democrats will say, ‘Wow, at least my party tried to steal it.
Lindell’s belief in the inevitability of Trump’s second term is at odds with that of Conway, who said in an interview with Amanda Becker, a political reporter for the non-partisan gender and political news site The 19th: “If you look at the total number of votes and the Electoral College agrees, it looks like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will prevail.
Conway said Trump wanted to “exhaust all his legal options” and added, “Of course that’s his right”. However, she also noted that on November 23, Trump authorized the head of the General Services Administration (GSA) to begin the formal transition process for Biden’s new administration.
GSA head Emily Murphy had delayed the process for weeks after the election was declared in Biden’s favor, preventing Biden’s team from receiving federal funds, workspace and information related to his inauguration as president.
Despite this, Trump continues to claim without evidence that widespread voter fraud led to the vote in Biden’s favor, even though Biden had a 306 to 232 vote advantage over Trump in the electoral college and won over 6 million more votes than the president nationwide.
Washington Newsday contacted Lindell for comment.
