Donald Trump Calls for a Revolution Following Obama's Re-election

Donald Trump calls for a revolution following Obama's re-election. The real estate mogul took to Twitter Tuesday night to rant about injustice and the nation's division.

Published November 7, 2012

Donald Trump took to Twitter last night to share his disgust with the election results and President Barack Obama's decisive win over Republican candidate Mitt Romney. While Trump has never pretended to be a fan of Obama, his online rant went a little too far — so much so that the real estate mogul had to go back and delete some of his words.

"We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided! Lets [sic] fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us," he wrote in a series of angry tweets. "This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy! Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble…like never before."

In between the messages, Trump also wrote and later deleted, "He lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election. We should have a revolution in this country!"

While Romney was leading in the popular vote for a portion of the evening, Obama currently has a lead of 2.8 million popular votes. He earned 303 electoral votes while Romney raked in 206.

Trump was a proponent of the birther issue that questioned Obama's natural-born citizenship. On Oct. 24, 2012, Trump offered to donate $5 million to a charity if Obama released his college and passport applications before the end of the month. Obama ignored his deal.
