Donald Trump has appeared to respond to the widely circulated "Twitter Files" leaks by calling for the "termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution".

This week, new Twitter owner Elon Musk had been hyping a massive bombshell regarding the New York Post's 2020 story on Hunter Biden and his laptop.

"The Twitter Files on free speech suppression soon to be published on Twitter itself. The public deserves to know what really happened," the 51-year-old billionaire tweeted on November 28.

And after promising to reveal "what really happened with the Hunter Biden story suppression by Twitter", Musk then shared a link to a Twitter thread penned by independent journalist Matt Taibbi.

Taibbi's thread, published on Friday, shared screenshots of emails and files from former Twitter employees that showed conversations relating to the "suppression" of the Post's exposé. "Twitter took extraordinary steps to suppress the story, removing links and posting warnings that it may be 'unsafe'", Taibbi wrote.

Despite claiming that decisions to suppress the story were made "at the highest levels of the company", Taibbi did stress that there is no evidence "of any government involvement in the laptop story" or from previous Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

As of this writing, total interactions on Taibbi's thread have reached the millions.

Following the release of the so-called "Twitter Files", former President Donald Trump took to his own social media platform - Truth Social - to once again comment on how "Big Tech Companies" allegedly helped to "throw" the results of the 2020 Presidential Election.

In a post shared on Saturday, Trump writes: "So, with the revelation of MASSIVE + WIDESPREAD FRAUD + DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, + the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION?"

The former POTUS then claimed that "a massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution."

"Our great 'Founders' did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections," Trump's post concluded.

In response to the 76-year-old's comments, White House spokesman Andrew Bates has dubbed Trump's words as an "anathema to the soul of our nation, and should be universally condemned."

"You cannot only love America when you win," Bates said in a statement, per CNN. "The American Constitution is a sacrosanct document that for over 200 years has guaranteed that freedom and the rule of law prevail in our great country.

"The Constitution brings the American people together – regardless of party – and elected leaders swear to uphold it. It’s the ultimate monument to all of the Americans who have given their lives to defeat self-serving despots that abused their power and trampled on fundamental rights."
