I think it’s a fitting time to add a new phrase to the American lexicon to really celebrate all that Donald Trump has stood for this last 4 years.
Trump the rules - An attempt to modify rules, sometimes drastically and often through false narrative, to favor one’s self when expected or actual results appear unfavorable. This is usually accompanied by claims that the trumped rules will be more “fair” while the opposite is always true.
Synonyms: Moving the goalpost
“You can’t just trump the rules because you’re losing.”

“The only way you could possibly win the election is by trumping the rules.”
