Twitter Customers Remind Trump What He Beforehand Stated About The Fifth Modification

Donald Trump’s decision to plead the Fifth Amendment on Wednesday in response to the New York attorney general’s questions about his dealings as a real estate mogul sent many Twitter users down memory lane.

That’s because the former president is famous for disparaging people who invoke their constitutional right to self-incrimination.

For instance, there was that time in 2016 when he told an Iowa rally: “The mob takes the Fifth Amendment. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

This is despite taking the Fifth 97 times during his 1990 divorce trial from Ivana to avoid admitting adultery.

Under the Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination, individuals may refuse to give answers to questions in civil or criminal proceedings that might incriminate them in future criminal proceedings.

Not surprisingly, many Twitter users found the news that he would take advantage of the same amendment he previously trashed to be quite amusing.

And they kept bringing up the past.
