About a month after the US election, Donald Trump explained his fraud allegations against the Democrats for 46 minutes on Wednesday. Exposing the truth is crucial for the future of democracy. In what was, in his words, the most significant speech of all, Trump also revealed what his top duty as US President was.
“Attack and Siege on the Electoral System”
“As President, I have no higher duty than to defend the laws and the Constitution of the United States,” said Donald Trump militantly on Wednesday. “That is why I am determined to protect our election system, which is now under coordinated assault and siege.”
So much for the fake news that Trump “gave up” long ago!
Trump laid out some of the “shocking irregularities, abuses and fraud” surrounding Biden’s miraculous victory (Sleepy Joe is said to have received a staggering 81 million votes – eleven million votes more than previous record holder Barack Obama in 2008).
Many mail-in ballots unconstitutional?
There used to be an “election day,” the president emphasized regarding the length of time the count took in many states. “Now we have election days, weeks and months”. He again blamed the massively expanded postal voting system for this. The Democrats installed this under the “pretext of the pandemic” and thus opened the “floodgates” to massive electoral fraud.
In the key state of Pennsylvania, for example, it was made possible that postal votes can still be recognized three days after the actual election day – even if the postmark is illegible.
Trump stressed that changes made to the electoral rules such as these are unconstitutional because they were not brought about by the legislature.
“Sorry, you can’t vote.”
Trump also dealt with the notorious problems in US elections, such as manipulable voting machines, the phenomenon of “dead” voters or districts where there were more votes than registered voters. However, he was particularly stunned by what is known as “ballot harvesting”.
Voluntary or paid helpers go to the front doors of the (often elderly) voters to collect ballot papers. This method, which has been heavily criticized in numerous states, enables interested parties to simply submit fake votes on behalf of citizens.
After November 3, many of those affected testified that they had been turned away at the polling station because they had allegedly voted in absentia. “they felt horror,” said Trump. “they lost respect for our system. This happened tens of thousands of times all over the country. “
Democracy in danger!
Presenting graphics on Wisconsin and Michigan that illustrate the sudden mega-increase in Biden votes in the early morning, Trump says skeptically: “First I won by a large margin and then lost by a small margin!”
Commenting on his challenge, the 74-year-old said: “This is not just about honoring the votes of 74 million Americans who voted for me, it’s about ensuring that Americans can have faith in this election and in all future elections. “
“We’re going to the Supreme Court!”
Apparently with a lot of civil servants in mind, Trump says “everyone” knows that the election result was invalid: “they’ve seen the evidence, but they don’t want to talk about it, what a disaster this election was, a total catastrophe.” He put his hope in the Supreme Court: “hopefully, they will do what’s right for our country, because our country can not live with this kind of an election.”
The forces who falsified the elections are the same who have tried for four years to revise the 2016 result. Keyword: Russiagate. “They don’t put America first, and we’re returning power to you the American people.”
Preserving the integrity of the American election, Trump said, will be the most important thing he has done as president. “I don’t mind if I lose an election, but I want to lose an election fair and square. What I don’t want to do is have it stolen from the American people. That’s what we’re fighting for. “
