Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that his supporters would be “scorned” if they threatened people — a likely diss to those who are threatening Electoral College electors in an attempt to persuade them to vote for someone other than him on Monday.
“If my many supporters acted and threatened people like those who lost the election are doing, they would be scorned & called terrible names!” the president-elect wrote.
Following the polarizing Nov. 8 election, many of this year’s electors are being targeted by death threats, harassing phone calls and hate mail. Monday is the day they formally cast their votes around the nation.
There has been a recent movement by some electors to vote for a candidate other than Trump or even Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in an effort to reject Trump’s election.
If my many supporters acted and threatened people like those who lost the election are doing, they would be scorned & called terrible names!
