After Trump told his supporters to take to the streets in protest, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene told them not to bother.
Trump posted on Truth Social:
IT’S TIME!!! WE ARE A NATION IN STEEP DECLINE, BEING LED INTO WORLD WAR III BY A CROOKED POLITICIAN WHO DOESN’T EVEN KNOW HE’S ALIVE, BUT WHO IS SURROUNDED BY EVIL & SINISTER PEOPLE WHO, BASED ON THEIR ACTIONS ON DEFUNDING THE POLICE, DESTROYING OUR MILITARY, OPEN BORDERS, NO VOTER I.D., INFLATION, RAISING TAXES, & MUCH MORE, CAN ONLY HATE OUR NOW FAILING USA.

Greene tweeted a reply:

Trump isn’t going to like Marjorie Taylor Greene telling people not to bother protesting for him because 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 phrase 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.
Recent polling revealed that 64% of voters think that Trump committed a crime.
The protests on Trump’s behalf are unlikely to materialize, and if Marjorie Taylor Greene thinks that a Trump indictment will keep her in power in 2024, she is in for a big surprise.
