Trump continued his social media attacks, calling for the jailing of elected officials, including President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

The former president reposted an image posted by Truth Social user Patriot4life, which included photos of 15 former or current elected officials that read, “THEY SHOULD BE GOING TO JAIL ON MONDAY NOT STEVE BANNON!” These images included Biden, Harris, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, former Vice President Mike Pence and numerous members of the House committee that investigated the Jan. 6 attacks on the Capitol.
