Former President Donald Trump in a campaign video Wednesday made a defiant reply to “left-wing lunatics” and “COVID tyrants” who are “trying very hard to bring back COVID lockdowns and mandates with their sudden fear-mongering about variants”: “We will not comply.”

Trump mocked the timing of the resurgent COVID hysteria, saying, “Gee-whiz, you know what else is coming? An election.”

“They want to restart the COVID hysteria so they can justify more lockdowns, more censorship, more illegal drop boxes, more mail-in ballots, and trillions of dollars in payoffs to their political allies heading into the 2024 election. Does that sound familiar?” he said in the statement, which is posted on the “Team Trump” X account with the words: “COVID Tyrants want to take away our Freedom. Hear my words – WE WILL NOT COMPLY.” (Team Trump is the official X account for the Trump campaign.)

Trump called the people pushing a new round of potentially tyrannical COVID polices “bad people. These are sick people we’re dealing with.”

“But to every COVID tyrant who wants to take away our freedom, hear these words: we will not comply,” he said. “So don’t even think about it. We will not shut down our schools. We will not accept your lockdowns. We will not abide by your mask mandates, and we will not tolerate your vaccine mandates.”

“They rigged the 2020 election and now they’re trying to do the same thing all over again by rigging the most important election in the history of our country – the 2024 election – even if it means trying to bring back COVID,” he said.

There is widespread consensus on the Right, and even grudging acknowledgement on the Left, that COVID fears and lockdowns enabled emergency changes in various state election rules that were used to great advantage by Biden and the Democrats in the 2020 election against Trump.

Regarding a repeat of that scenario, Trump said, “But they will fail because we will not let it happen. When I’m back in the White House, I will use every available authority to cut federal funding to any school, college, airline, or public transportation system that imposes a mask mandate or a vaccine mandate.”

The following “Community Notes” were added to the Team Trump post containing his video: “The Trump Administration along with other federal agencies began the lockdown and social distancing rules in 2020”; and “President Trump issued national guidelines that included closing schools and avoiding bars, restaurants and groups of more than 10,” each with links (see above).

Republican critics push back
Meanwhile, Jenna Ellis, a former member of Trump’s legal team who was among those indicted in Georgia along with him as an alleged “co-conspirator,” published an interview with Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a popular “COVID dissident” doctor, who said then-President Trump ceded too much power to Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx in formulating his administration’s COVID policies during the pandemic.

As WND reported in 2022, in her book, Birx admitted to deceiving President Trump on COVID testing and altering the CDC’s guidance without proper authorization, earning a scolding from Trump’s chief-of-staff, Mark Meadows.

Daniel Horowitz, a conservative writer and podcaster who became a leading voice against the experimental COVID vaccines and oppressive COVID policies, said in an X Spaces group conversation Thursday that the new Trump COVID declaration is a good sign.

"It was a pleasant surprise hearing Trump's statement yesterday ... what it at least tells me is someone got to him," Horowitz said. Many conservatives, including MAGA supporters who otherwise enthusiastically support Trump, have expressed disappointment at his statements defending the entirety of his administration's COVID record while belittling that of "average" Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Trump video transcript
The following is the verbatim text of Trump's video Wednesday on COVID that was posted on the "Team Trump's X account the next day.

"The left-wing lunatics are trying very hard to bring back COVID lockdowns and mandates with all of their sudden fear-mongering about the new variants that are coming. Gee-whiz, you know what else is coming? An election.

"They want to restart the COVID hysteria so they can justify more lockdowns, more censorship, more illegal drop boxes, more mail-in ballots, and trillions of dollars in payoffs to their political allies heading into the 2024 election. Does that sound familiar?

"These are bad people. These are sick people we're dealing with.

"But to every COVID tyrant who wants to take away our freedom, hear these words: we will not comply. So don’t even think about it. We will not shut down our schools. We will not accept your lockdowns. We will not abide by your mask mandates, and we will not tolerate your vaccine mandates.

"They rigged the 2020 election and now they're trying to do the same thing all over again by rigging the most important election in the history of our country – the 2024 election – even if it means trying to bring back COVID.

"But they will fail because we will not let it happen. When I'm back in the White House, I will use every available authority to cut federal funding to any school, college, airline, or public transportation system that imposes a mask mandate or a vaccine mandate. Thank you very much."

Massive meta-study on mask wearing delivers kill shot to COVID narrative

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Today's ruling elites champion policies every previous generation of Americans would have regarded as outright evil. At the top of that list would be the supremely radioactive issue – illuminated by the hit summer film "Sound of Freedom" – of the widespread trafficking and sexual slavery of children, as well as the shocking prevalence of pedophiles in the United States of America. Indeed, the U.S. is the largest market for child sexual abuse in the world.

According to Tim Ballard, who has led many missions rescuing sex-trafficked children around the world, the Biden administration actually ENABLES AND PROMOTES the trafficking and sexual slavery of children with its horrendous border policies, its push for early sexualization of children, championing children's "right to consent" on everything including mutilating transgender surgeries, and so on.

"Pedophiles are sitting back right now," says Ballard, "and going, 'We've been pushing this agenda for decades, and now we don't have to push any more, because the left is taking care of it for us' – IN AMERICA!"

Ballard's concerns are confirmed by Tara Lee Rodas, a Health and Human Services whistleblower who recently testified before Congress that under Joe Biden, "THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME THE MIDDLEMAN IN A LARGE-SCALE, MULTI-BILLION-DOLLAR CHILD TRAFFICKING OPERATION."

But that's just the beginning. The whole, secret criminal mega-enterprise of child sex trafficking and the global elites' affinity for pedophilia is exposed as never before in the August issue of WND's critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, in a groundbreaking issue titled "THE NEW AMERICAN SLAVE TRADE: How the Biden regime enables and promotes child sex trafficking in the U.S.A." WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
