WEF ordered electors to not certify Trump’s 2024 election win?!

Did the WEF just order US electors to not certify Trump’s 2024 election win?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Orders US Electors To Not Certify Trump’s 2024 Election Win!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claimed or suggested that the WEF just order US electors to NOT certify Trump’s 2024 election win!

Truth : WEF Did Not Order US Electors To Not Certify Trump’s 2024 Election Win!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : WEF Did Not Order US Electors To Do Anything

Let me start by pointing out that the World Economic Forum (WEF) did not order or instruct any US elector to not certify Trump’s 2024 election win.

If the WEF actually did that, it would not only have been reported widely by the mainstream media, it would have been lambasted by Trump supporters, and everyone else who believes in a fair election.

Yet, there was no such report, not even some social media outrage. That’s because that never happened.

The People’s Voice article, unsurprisingly, offered no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim. No document, not even a (doctored?) audio or video of WEF chairman Klaus Schwab issuing those orders.

Fact #2 : WEF Wasn’t Even Mentioned In The Atlantic Article

The source of this nonsensical claim is an article by The Atlantic called “How Democrats Could Disqualify Trump If The Supreme Court Doesn’t“. Guess what – the World Economic Forum wasn’t even mentioned in the article!

So how did The People’s Voice article conclude that the WEF just ordered or instructed US electors to not certify Donald Trump??? Yet again, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its claim…

Fact #3 : WEF Does Not Fund The Atlantic

The People’s Voice article called The Atlantic a “WEF-funded publication“. As far as I can tell – that’s utter bollocks.

Steve Jobs’ widow, Laurene Powell Jobs acquired majority ownership of The Atlantic on 28 July 2017, through her Emerson Collective organisation. This relegated David G. Bradley and Atlantic Media to the minority ownership of The Atlantic.

Of course, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence, just a single link to a profile of The Atlantic’s current CEO, Nicholas Thompson on the WEF website.

Fact #4 : Article Was About Congress, Not Electors

The Atlantic article did not mention anything about electors being ordered not to certify Trump’s win in the 2024 Presidential election (which is not a foregone conclusion).

The article was about the opinions of Democrats in the US Congress, and has nothing to do with the electors, appointed by each state to form the US Electoral College.

Fact #5 : Democrats Objected To Every GOP President Since 2000

The Atlantic article actually pointed out that some Democrats have objected to the certification of each GOP presidential winner since 2000. But that never stopped those GOP presidential winners from being certified as the President of the United States.

So, the WEF would not actually have to “order” or “instruct” any member of Congress to object to the certification of Donald Trump, if he does actually win the 2024 Presidential election.

Fact #6 : Democrats Will Not Commit Until Supreme Court Affirms Eligibility

The Atlantic article points out that some Democrats are hesitant about certifying a Trump win in 2024, unless the US Supreme Court affirms his eligibility to serve another term as president. After all – the Fourteenth Amendment bars people who have “engaged in insurrection or rebellion” from holding office.

While Donald Trump has not yet been convicted of fomenting an insurrection, every House Democrat together with 10 Republicans voted to impeach Trump for “incitement of insurrection” in early 2021. So, those members of Congress believe that Donald Trump is an “insurrectionist” who is ineligible to serve as president.

The same article also pointed out that if the Supreme Court affirms his eligibility, the Democrats have said that they would vote for certification if Trump wins.

Eric Swalwell (D-CA) : I’m going to follow the law. I would not object out of protest of how the Supreme Court comes down. It would be doing what I didn’t like about the January 6 Republicans.

Fact #7 : Republicans Also Decline To Commit To Certify

While some Democrats who are refusing to commit to certifying a Trump win in 2024 because they believe that he is guilty of insurrection, top Republicans like Representative Elise Stefanik – the House GOP conference chair, refused to commit to certifying a Joe Biden win, even though he does not face any questions about his eligibility.

Fact #8 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:
