The 2020 election was stolen

After losing to Joe Biden in the 2020 election, the former President began a futile campaign to flip the election results. During his rallies in early Dec 2020, Trump pushed the outlandish claim that his victory was "stolen by emboldened radical-left Democrats." Things reached a boiling point when he also encouraged his base to occupy the U.S. Capitol in protest on Jan 6. What quickly followed was a misguided attempt to overturn the results that injured 138 police officers and killed 5 people.
