After Trump told his supporters to take to the streets in protest, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene told them not to worry.
Trump posted on Truth Social:
IT’S TIME!!! WE ARE A NATION IN SHARP DECLINE, DRAGGED INTO WORLD WAR III BY A CRACKED POLITICIAN WHO DOESN’T EVEN KNOW HE IS ALIVE, BUT WHO IS SURROUNDED BY MALICIOUS AND SINISTER PEOPLE WHO, BASED ON THEIR ACTIONS TO FUND THE POLICE, DESTROY OUR ARMY, OPEN BORDERS, NO VOTER ID, INFLATION, TAX INCREASE, AND MUCH MORE, CAN BUT HATE OUR NOW FAILED USA. WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS ANY MORE. THEY KILL OUR NATION WHILE WE SIT AND WATCH. WE MUST SAVE AMERICA! PROTEST, PROTEST, PROTEST!!!
Greene tweeted a response:

Trump won’t like Marjorie Taylor Greene telling people not to bother protesting for him because the Republicans are going to win anyway in 2024.
Sarah Jones discussed Trump’s potential indictment on BBC World News:
There is a level of detachment from reality that borders on delusion in Grrene’s comments. She even used the expression silent majority.
Of course, Trump that there was a silent majority supporting him in 2020, and he lost by 11 million votes to President Biden.
A recent poll found that 64% of voters think Trump committed a crime.
Protests on Trump’s behalf are unlikely to materialize, and if Marjorie Taylor Greene thinks an indictment from Trump will keep her in power in 2024, she’s in for a big surprise.
