  • Donald Trump said his supporters would not vote in future elections unless the GOP backed election fraud claims.
  • On social media, his supporters are divided over whether to follow his advice.
  • “Donald Trump is doing everything he can to hurt Republican chances in 2022,” one wrote.

Former President Donald Trump’s supporters are divided over his comments that Republicans will not vote in the 2022 or 2024 elections unless the Republican Party backs his election fraud claims.

“If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ’22 or ’24,” Trump said in a statement emailed to his supporters on Wednesday.

“It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do,” he said.

Since leaving office in January, Trump has continued to hype the baselessly claim that the 2020 election was rigged in Joe Biden’s favor.

In several pro-Trump and QAnon Telegram channels, MAGA supporters have been arguing over whether to follow his advice.

“Donald Trump is doing everything he can to hurt Republican chances in 2022,” an account called Trump Supporters wrote on Telegram.

“Donald Trump is, ostensibly, a Republican. But he has shown time and again — both in the White House and now out of it — that he cares little about helping the party and its other candidates,” they said.

According to Newsweek, another Telegram user wrote, “But what happens if we don’t vote? Does the evil cabal remain in power forever? Do they just appoint more of the same?? What???”

“Not voting is not just what Marxists want, It’s also stupid no matter how rigged the system is,” another user wrote, according to the outlet.

However, other users rushed to his defense, agreeing with Trump’s stance to put pressure on the Republican Party.

“We shouldn’t vote until the election process is run correctly. Just be wasting our time for another farce!” one user wrote.

“Why waste the effort for something that is against us. Shake the RNC at its core, voters will not cast votes for them,” another Telegram user said.

Others disagreed. “If we don’t show up and vote, it’s just like surrendering. Everyone must go to the poles (sic) in person,” one user said.

Cas Mudde, a professor of international affairs at the University of Georgia recently told Insider that Trump’s threat is “mostly a power play.”

“He wants to remain at the center of GOP politics and prevent the party from moving on without him,” Mudde said.
