Trump Revives His ‘Stop the Steal’ Slogan

( – Former President Donald Trump just revived his most controversial slogan this week, reprising “Stop the Steal” in a social media post, a saying the former president coined after contesting the results of the 2020 presidential election.

On Tuesday, March 26, Trump posted a rant on his social media platform Truth Social where he once again claimed the lawsuits against him were launched due to pressure from the Biden administration in order to disrupt his 2024 presidential campaign. He specifically named Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who he said was “pushed” by “Joe Biden’s ‘Thugs’” to go forward with the case against him for allegedly paying hush money to adult actress Stormy Daniels through his former lawyer Michael Cohen.

Trump also named Merrick Garland, Matthew Colangelo, and New York Attorney General Letitia James, who launched a civil fraud case against him in New York resulting in a $464 million penalty that the former president is currently appealing. Trump then called on Judge Juan Merchan once again to recuse himself from participating in the hush money case because of his connections to the Democratic Party. He ended the lengthy rant with the slogan, “STOP THE STEAL!”

The “Stop the Steal” slogan originated after the 2020 election, the results of which Trump immediately challenged, inspiring rallies and protests from his supporters who believed that voter fraud took place and that Trump was the actual winner. The most notable of those rallies happened on Jan. 6, 2021, in Washington, D.C., during which riots broke out at the Capitol Building. These events led to accusations against Trump that he provoked an insurrection to try and overturn the certification of the election results. He is facing lawsuits over those accusations as well.

Despite all of the legal battles, Trump continued to campaign strongly and dominated the Republican primary contest. He also remains ahead of Biden in various polls, including in key swing states such as Pennsylvania and Arizona.
