Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Has rejected the conspiracy theory that former President Donald Trump will be reinstated in the White House in August.
“I want people to be careful what they believe, ”Greene told viewers during an appearance on“ War Room: Pandemic, ”a show hosted by Steve Bannon, Trump’s former chief strategist.
“It’s going to be very difficult to call off the 2020 election, so I would hate anyone who hopes that President Trump will be back in the White House in August. Because it’s not true, ”she said.
“I’m telling you as a congressman, it’s a very difficult thing to do,” she observed of the efforts to overturn the 2020 general election results.
There is no constitutional basis to support the claim that Trump will be reinstated in August. Last month, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman reported that Trump “has told a number of people he is in contact with that he expects him to be reinstated by August. “. Haberman noted at the time that the claim came as Trump faced an investigation and potential arraignment from the Manhattan district attorney. (The Trump Organization was charged with a slew of financial crimes last week, and its CFO, Allen Weisselberg, was also arrested although Trump himself has not been charged.)
Trump has told a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects him to be reinstated by August (no, that’s not how it works, but just by sharing the ‘information). https://t.co/kaXSXKnpF0

The conspiracy theory has nonetheless been popular in QAnon circles, to which Greene subscribes, and, it seems, outside of them.
A politician/ Morning consultation investigation out of 1,990 registered voters last month, revealed that 3 in 10 Republicans believe Trump will be president again. The conspiracy theory was widely rejected by Democratic voters (84%) as well as by a majority of Republican voters (61%).
