Lindell made his prediction in an interview, dismissing claims that his support for Trump was helping him sell his pillows.
“I lost 20 traders and it’s worth $ 65 million this year that I’m not coming back, am I?” Lindell told Business Insider. “Here is your story. Print it correctly. Don’t try to distort this. “
On Monday, Dominion Voting Systems filed a defamation lawsuit against Lindel for his repeated baseless allegations that the company was involved in “stealing millions of votes” from Trump.
The lawsuit also alleges that Lindell accused Dominion of changing the election as “another chance to increase sales” for MyPillow after the CEO became such a vocal supporter of the Trump presidency.
Lindell told the Associated Press that any increase in sales his company experienced was very brief, but that after retailers such as Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s stopped selling his product, his business was devastated.
“I was looking forward to a lawsuit finally,” Lindell said of Dominion’s lawsuit, adding that the lawsuit would prove him right. “I’d like to go home with Dominion tomorrow.”
