Estonia’s far-right interior minister, Mart Helme, resigned Monday, a day after he called President-elect Joe Biden and his son Hunter “corrupt swines”.

“Last night I decided to resign when looking at the slander and lies produced by the Estonian media,” said Helme, of the Estonian Conservative People’s Party, or EKRE

“I am tired. I did nothing yesterday that would endanger Estonia’s security,” he told public broadcaster ERR.

“I have not said anything that has not already been told by the American media, the American free media”.

On Sunday Martin Helme said that there is “no question that these elections (in the United States) were falsified.”

“If this (U.S. election result) goes through, then the Constitution will no longer apply in America,” he added.

On Monday, Martin Helme told reporters that what he said was what “the whole of the U.S. media is saying. The press (in Estonia) is not telling the Estonian people what the entire American media is saying, but I did it: election fraud,” the younger Helme said, according to the Baltic News Service.
