“Go for it, b—h,” he said in a video posted to his personal Twitter account. “Come at me. I can’t wait. We’re delighted by the thought that you would try to sue us, Donald. Do it!”

The Lincoln Project was founded in 2019 by current and former Republicans opposed to Trump’s 2020 campaign. Trump threatened to sue the organization and Fox News, where the ads critical of him ran.
“Dear MAGA, we have some bad news,” the ad begins. “No, not that he lost. Not that your little coup attempt failed and its planners and the attackers are going to jail. No. The really bad news is why Trump told you he lost. Why he set it up way before the 2020 election. It wasn’t voter fraud but it was fraud.”
“Trump told you the election was stolen ripped you off, to sucker you, to take your hard-earned money and shovel it into his pockets. He spent it on himself not to take back the White House,” the narrator continues, before concluding, “It was the biggest scam in political history. Every dollar you sent him paid to keep his shady business empire and lavish lifestyle going. It was a sucker game all along. And you know who the sucker is? You.”

Trump responded to the ad on his social media platform, Truth Social.
“The Perverts and Lowlifes of the Lincoln Project are back on, where else, Fox News,” the former President wrote. “I thought they ran away to the asylum after their last catastrophic campaign, with charges made against them that were big time sleaze, and me getting many millions more votes in 2020 than I got in 2016. The Paul Ryun run Fox only has high standards for “Trump” ads, but not for anyone else. The Perverts should not be allowed to “false advertise,” and Fox News should not allow it to happen. See you all in Court!!!”
