President Trump: “If We Don’t Root Out the Fraud… We Don’t Have a Country Anymore”
(Minghui.org) U.S. President Donald Trump gave a speech on December 2 about fraud in the general election. He listed many pieces of evidence, including sworn affidavits from witnesses. “This may be the most important speech I’ve ever made,” he said.
“As President, I have no higher duty than to defend the laws and the Constitution of the United States,” he remarked, “That is why I am determined to protect our election system, which is now under coordinated assault and siege.”
Problems with Mail-In Ballots
Trump emphasized that the constitutional process of investigating fraud must be allowed to continue. “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,” he explained.
Recent efforts have identified shocking irregularities, abuses and fraud, he said, and one of them is the mail-in ballot scheme. This was widely observed across the board, especially in many cities of swing states, from Detroit to Philadelphia and from Milwaukee to Atlanta.
Trump pointed out that the Democratic Party's relentless push to send out tens of millions of ballots to unknown recipients has “allowed fraud and abuse to occur in a scale never seen before.” Furthermore, he said politicians and judges had “drastically changed election procedures just months, and in some cases, weeks before the election on the 3rd of November.”
“It’s constitutionally, absolutely incorrect what took place, even from a legal standpoint,” he added. In many states, such as Nevada and California, millions of ballots were sent to “every person on their voter rolls whether those individuals had requested ballots or not, whether they were dead or alive.”
Trump also pointed out errors in election records, such as wrong addresses, duplicate entries, and many other issues. “Dozens of counties in the key swing states have more registered voters on the rolls than they have voting age citizens, including 67 counties in Michigan,” he said. “In Wisconsin, the state’s Board of Elections could not confirm the residency of more than 100,000 people, but repeatedly refused to remove those names from its voter rolls before the election. They knew why, nobody else did. I knew why. They were illegal voters.”
In many places, Republican poll watchers were not allowed to see the process. Meanwhile, a large number of voters showed up at their polling places, only to be denied the right to vote because they had “already voted by mail-in ballot” when in fact they had never received mail-in ballots.
Dominion And Unexplainable Statistics
Another area of fraud concerned the Dominion voting system. In one Michigan county where the system was used, 6,000 votes were found to have been wrongly switched from Trump to Biden. And “this is just the tip of the iceberg. This is what we caught. How many didn’t we catch?” asked Trump.
He also pointed out, “Election authorities in Texas have repeatedly blocked the deployment of Dominion systems due to concerns about security vulnerabilities and the potential for errors and outright fraud,” he added.
Statisticians have found some atypical phenomena that are statistically impossible. Under Trump’s leadership, Republicans had a big success securing seats in the House of Representatives, but Trump himself lost. According to Trump, some pollsters said, “We can’t understand a thing like this. It’s never happened before. You led the country to victory, and you were the only one that lost. It’s not possible.”
This discrepancy happened because of fraud, Trump said. “Here’s an example. This is Michigan. At 6:31 in the morning, a vote dump of 149,772 votes came in unexpectedly. We were winning by a lot. That batch was received in horror,” he said. To make things worse, no signature checking was conducted.
Trump said Democrats used the pandemic as an excuse to mail out tens of millions of ballots, which enabled fraud on an unprecedented scale. “The whole world is watching,” he said, including communist China.
With these accounts of fraud, Trump said “the results of the individual swing states must be overturned, and overturned immediately. Some people say that’s too far out, that’s too harsh. Well, does that mean we take a precedent, and we’ve just elected a president where the votes were fraudulent?”
He said some people choose not to see or talk about the mounting evidence of fraud, “But we’re going to show it, and hopefully, the courts in particular, the Supreme Court of the United States will see it, and respectfully, hopefully, they will do what’s right for our country, because our country can not live with this kind of an election,” he said. “We could say, let’s go on to the next one, but no, we have to look also at our past. We can’t let this happen.”
Four Years of Defamation
Trump said, “The media knows this, but they don’t want to report it. In fact, they outright refuse to even cover it, because they know the result if they do. Even what I’m saying now will be demeaned and disparaged, but that’s okay. I just keep on going forward, because I’m representing 74 million people, and in fact, I’m also representing all of the people that didn’t vote for me.
“The mail-in voting scam is the latest part of their four-year effort to overturn the results of the 2016 election, and it’s been like living in hell,” he said. “Our opponents have proven many times again and again, that they will say, and do anything to get back into power.”
Trump said some people are perpetrating and covering up the fraud out of self-interest. “They want to make money, that’s why they don’t want me as your president. I’ve been investigated from soon after I announced I was running for president. When I immediately went to number one in the Republican primary polls, the investigations never stopped,” he said. “They went on for four years, and I won them all, I beat them all.
“Robert Mueller spent $48 million of taxpayer money investigating me for two and a half years, issued over 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, issued 230 orders for communications records, and conducted 500 witness interviews, all looking to take me down,” he said. “There was no collusion in the end, none whatsoever.”
In the end, the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded, “The committee found no evidence that then-candidate Donald Trump, or his campaign colluded with the Russian government.”
Despite the attacks on him, Trump still had a sense of humor. “Everything has been looked at. A friend of mine, who’s very smart, said, ‘You’ve probably seen more than anybody else. You’ve probably been investigated more than anybody else. And for you to come out with a clean bill of health makes you probably the cleanest person in this country,’” he remarked.
A National Disgrace
Trump said the chaos extends beyond himself since it hurts America as a country. “They want to take not me, but us down. Then we can never let them do that,” he said.
Meanwhile, he also expects more people to step forward. “Why aren’t they active? Why aren’t they involved? There’s so much to be involved in,” he said, “The corruption is so rampant. They just couldn’t take it anymore. They were threatened by Democrats with impeachment and horrible things were said about them. And they’re good people.” One example is the head of the GSA who was hounded and harassed in a way she had never experienced before.
“But if you look at the lies, and the leaks, and the illegal acts of behavior done by so many people, and their desire to hurt the president of the United States, something should happen,” Trump continued. “The hardest thing I have to do is explain why nothing is happening with all of these people that got caught spying on my campaign. It’s never happened before and it should never happen again to a president of the United States.”
He expected these issues would be resolved in court hearings. “The evidence is overwhelming. The fraud that we’ve collected in recent weeks is overwhelming, having to do with our election. Everyone is saying, ‘Wow, the evidence is overwhelming’, when they get to see it.”
Trump said, “there is still plenty of time to certify the correct winner of the election and that's what we're fighting to do. But no matter when it happens, when they see fraud, when they see false votes and when those votes number far more than is necessary, you can’t let another person steal that election from you. All over the country, people are together in holding up signs, ‘Stop the steal.’”
What has happened in the U.S. is a national disgrace, said Trump. “Most Americans would also be shocked to learn that no state in the country verifies United States citizenship as a condition for voting in federal elections.” He added, “No other advanced country conducts elections this way. Many European countries have instituted major restrictions on mail-in voting, specifically, because they recognize the nearly unlimited potential for fraud.”
“Out of 42 European nations, all but two prohibit absentee ballots entirely for people who reside inside the country, or else they require those who need absentee ballots to show a very, very powerful ID,” he explained.
Restoring Faith and Confidence
“This is an egregious, inexcusable, and irreversible harm that stains the entire election, yet this unprecedented practice of excluding our observers, our vote watchers, as some people call them, occurred in Democrat-run cities and key states all across the nation,” Trump said.
In Michigan, an employee of the city of Detroit and other city workers were “coaching voters to vote straight Democrat, while accompanying them to watch who they were voting for, violating the law and the sanctity of the secret ballot,” said Trump. These workers were also told not to ask for any ID or attempt to validate any signatures.
“There are also other type of fraudulence. In Wisconsin, a record number of voters were categorized as indefinitely confined. A status reserved for severely disabled individuals, also for the elderly that allow them to vote without showing ID,” Trump said. “Last year, approximately 70,000 people claimed this status statewide. This year, the number miraculously was nearly 250,000 voters.”
Because of these reasons, Trump is calling for a full forensic audit to “ensure that only legal ballots from lawfully registered voters that were properly cast are included in the final count.”
“This election is about great voter fraud, fraud that has never been seen like this before,” he explained.
“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,” he continued. “We have no choice to be doing that. We already have the proof. We already have the evidence, and it’s very clear. Many people in the media and even judges so far have refused to accept it. They know it’s true. They know it’s there. They know who won the election.”
Trump said this is about restoring faith and confidence in American elections. “This is about our democracy and the sacred rights that generations of Americans have fought, bled, and died to secure. Nothing is more urgent or more important,” he added. “The only ballots that should count in this election are those cast by eligible voters who are citizens of our country, residents of the states in which they voted, and who cast their ballots in a lawful manner before the legal deadline.”
This may be the most important speech he had ever made, said Trump. “We must never again have an election in which there is not a reliable and transparent system to verify the eligibility, identity, and residency of every single person who casts a ballot, a very, very cherished ballot,” he explained.
Many people told Trump that among a long list of things he had done, including big tax cuts and regulation cuts, “the single greatest achievement in your presidency will be exactly what you’re doing right now: voter integrity for our nation.”
“If we don’t root out the fraud, the tremendous and horrible fraud that’s taken place in our 2020 election, we don’t have a country anymore,” concluded Trump. “With the resolve and support of the American people, we will restore honesty and integrity to our elections. We will restore trust in our system of government. Thank you. God bless you. God bless America.”
