Lindell, whose MyPillow commercials have for years been advertised on Fox News, tweeted and later deleted a call for "martial law" in seven states.

Lindell claimed that if Trump declares martial law in the seven states, his campaign allies could take control of the state's ballots and, apparently, overturn the results of the U.S. presidential election in Trump's favor.

@realDonaldTrump please impose martial law in these 7 states and get the machines/ballots!"

Lindell has joined Trump in badgering Republican lawmakers in several states where the two baselessly said there was voter fraud.

Newsweek reached out to MyPillow as well as the Trump campaign for additional remarks or any reaction to the now-deleted Saturday tweet.
