Gore denounces ‘artificial insanity’ of Trump’s false election claims

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Al Gore was vexed at the Republican Party's continued embrace of former President Donald Trump and insistence on relitigating the 2020 election, analogizing the situation to a road he and Democrats did not pursue in the aftermath of his presidential election loss.

Reflecting on the many disputes surrounding the 2000 election, Gore said during a Sunday CNN interview that his considerations then were not whether he could successfully force his way to victor but rather, “It was a question of what is right for the country.”

The former vice president also denounced Trump's continued spreading of false conspiracy theories and enabling by Republican leaders and voters.  

“The refusal of the former president to acknowledge that he lost by 7 million votes — it wasn't close for God's sake — and apparently a majority of his party is still so enthralled to him that they still believe that the American people did not make the judgment that they clearly made,” Gore said during a Sunday interview on. “This is very damaging to our democracy.”
