US President Donald Trump has urged members of the Republican Party to ‘get tough’.
He stated this on Friday via his official Twitter handle. “Get tough Republicans,” he wrote.
Trump has consistently claimed the recently held US presidential election was rigged and that it was a ‘total fraud’.
He had tweeted, “This election was rigged. This election was a total fraud,” without backing up his claim. “We won the election easily.”
In a similar tweet on December 4, 2020, Trump insisted the election was rigged. The tweet was, however, flagged by Twitter.
Trump lost to Democrat Joe Biden, a former vice-president with ex-President Barack Obama.
Biden, who won 306 votes in the Electoral College to Trump’s 232, is expected to be sworn in next January.
