Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R), a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump (R), appeared on FOX News this week, sharing his thoughts on why he believes that the President has been the victim of a witch hunt, and his pardon power.
As the President continues to challenge the results of the 2020 election, the Florida lawmaker has supported the President’s move to contend the results, and he shared a clip of his interview regarding the battle that lies ahead.
“President Trump should pardon Flynn, the Thanksgiving turkey, and everyone from himself, to his admin, to Joe Exotic if he has to,” Gaetz noted, adding that “the Left has a bloodlust that will only be quenched if they come for those who fought with” the President “to deliver for the American people.”

In turn, Gaetz has received criticism online for his comments, but the lawmaker maintains that the chips have been stacked against the President in an unfair manner, and it’s put the President in a position where he “should wield that pardon power effectively and robustly.”
The comments come at a time when President Trump has relaxed his cooperation with a possible incoming Biden administration, but he maintains that he will continue to challenge the election results and that he will win in the end.
