Donald Trump Calls For Revolution After Obama Election Victory

Donald Trump has urged American citizens to “march on Washington” and overthrow re-elected President Barack Obama. Yes, really.

The reality TV host, whose increasingly desperate bids for publicity may just have reached a new low, took to Twitter (like all good keyboard warriors) to describe the election as a “sham” and call the Electoral College a “disaster for a democracy.”

Donald Trump struck a rather different tone to Mitt Romney’s gracious concession speech as he told followers:

“We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!”

At the time of some of Trump’s tweets, the election was not quite over. Indeed, popular vote totals at the time revealed Obama was actually just behind Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, though the electoral college figures suggested Obama’s victory was close to being confirmed.

Trump has been a highly vocal critic of President Obama throughout the election campaign. After demanding the president release his birth certificate (a request that was granted by the White House), Trump offered to donate $5 million to charity if Obama released his passport application and college transcripts by 5 pm on October 30. Predictably, the second request was ignored.

Will you be following Donald Trump’s demand to “march on Washington” tonight? Or, like the rest of us, will you spend the time watching Trump’s self-implosion from behind your own fingers? On a more serious note, do you think there’s a case to be made for serious electoral reform? Sound off in the comments!
