Fox Business host Lou DobbsLouis (Lou) Carl DobbsLou Dobbs demands GOP help Trump fight for 'what is rightfully his' The Memo: Trump hits out as tide moves for Biden Trump surrogate on election legal challenges: 'Hopefully Amy Coney Barrett will come through' MORE on Friday vehemently defended President Trump’s claims that he isn’t receiving a chance at a fair election, calling it “outrageous.”

Dobbs, a vocal Trump supporter, urged Republicans to defend the president during an interview with Rep. Devin NunesDevin Gerald NunesOvernight Defense: Trump loyalist to lead Pentagon transition | Democrats ask VA for vaccine distribution plan | Biden to get classified intel reports Ex-Nunes aide linked to Biden conspiracy theories will lead Pentagon transition Sunday shows preview: Biden transition, COVID-19 spike in spotlight MORE (R-Calif.), another ardent Trump ally.

“The president doesn’t want a statue erected to him,” Dobbs said. “What he wants is a free and fair election and honest results, and it’s been denied to him.”

“What is the party doing to make certain it isn’t called?” he asked the GOP lawmaker. “I see so little animation in the Republican Party on this. It’s as if it’s just another day at the store and when, in fact, I believe the fate of the republic hangs in the balance here. Don’t you?”

Nunes argued that Republicans are trying to get their message across but are being censored by the mainstream news outlets and social media sites such as Facebook, calling for the use of alternative apps such as Parler and Rumble instead.

“This is an effort to intimidate,” Dobbs concluded. “This is an attempt to take over the country and deny this president what is rightfully his, a second term.”

Dobbs’s comments come as Trump and his campaign have launched efforts to challenge the election outcome in various states, including Georgia, where a recount is underway.

Trump has not conceded the presidential race, and his campaign has faced a series of setbacks in court recently as it attempts to challenge the election results.
