Donald Trump has said it time and time again: there was massive voter fraud in the 2016 election.
And yet he still won.
Folks, when you really understand how much voter fraud there was (dead people voting, switched ballots, people voting in two states, etc) it could be as much as 5 million fraudulent votes cast.
Now Trump plans to get to the bottom of it, just like he’s always promised.
Reports are out today that he will sign a new executive order that will investigate and stop voter abuse and voter fraud.
Here is more information, from Politico:
President Donald Trump will sign an executive order Thursday creating a commission to examine voter fraud and voter suppression, something that he has repeatedly claimed, without evidence, constitutes a major and ongoing problem in the U.S.
A White House official told the pool of reporters monitoring the president on Thursday that the executive order will be forward-looking rather than “reviewing alleged voter fraud [and] suppression.”
“The commission will review policies and practices that enhance or undermine the American people’s confidence in the integrity of federal elections — including improper registrations, improper voting, fraudulent registrations, fraudulent voting and voting suppression,” the official told the press pool.
During last year’s presidential campaign, Trump offered repeated claims that the election would be rigged against him, and he declined to commit to accepting the election results, instead insisting on reserving judgment until after votes were cast and the results released. Weeks after he won the election, Trump wrote on Twitter that “in addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally,” an allegation for which he offered no proof.
And days after he was sworn in as president in January, Trump reiterated his claim to a group of congressional leaders from both parties, telling them during a White House meeting that he had lost the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton only because of illegally cast votes. White House officials have sought to defend the president’s claim but have struggled to offer a clear defense of it.
The commission will allow Trump to make good on a promise he made via Twitter shortly after his inauguration to seek “a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!”
