A defiant President Trump on Thursday said he and his campaign will “not allow corruption to steal” the election during a press conference at the White House, while maintaining that he will win the 2020 presidential race despite a dwindling path toward reelection as votes continue to come in.
The president, speaking from the James S. Brady press briefing room at the White House on Thursday evening, said that his “goal is to defend the integrity of the election.”
“If you count the legal votes, I easily win,” the president said.
“We will not allow corruption to steal such an important election—or any election for that matter,” Trump said. “We can’t allow anyone to silence our voters or manufacture results.”
The president said many polling places wouldn’t let “legally permitted observers” watch the ballot counting.
“This is a case where they’re trying to steal an election — trying to rig an election,” he said.
Trump has continually made numerous allegations of fraud and malfeasance on the part of Democrats in the days after Election Day.
“We were winning in all of the key locations by a lot, and miraculously, our numbers started getting whittled away in secret,” Trump said,
The president has also continuously lambasted the mail-in voting, saying that it was ripe for fraud and, on Thursday, that it would “destroy our system.”
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, millions of Americans voted by mail to avoid gathering in crowds at polling places. Despite the president’s claims, election officials and polling experts said there is very little proof that mail-in voting is any more susceptible to fraud than voting in person.
The president also referenced Pennsylvania, where he said he was ahead by “700,000 votes, and that gets whittled down to 90,000 — and the ballots — they’ll keep coming and coming. They find them all over.”
The Trump campaign has filed lawsuits in several states throughout the nation this week, seeking access for poll watching. In Pennsylvania, an appellate court judge cleared the way for the Trump campaign to more closely observe the canvassing of ballots by the Philadelphia County Board of Elections.
Poll watchers were initially required to remain at least 25 feet away from tables where people were carrying on the task of scanning mail and absentee ballots inside the Pennsylvania Convention Center, but Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon issued an order requiring “all candidates, watchers, or candidate representatives be permitted to be present for the canvassing process” and “be permitted to observe all aspects of the canvassing process within 6 feet, while adhering to all COVID-19 protocols, including wearing masks and maintaining social distancing.”
The order was to go into effect immediately, or no later than 10:30 a.m. ET on Nov. 5.
The city of Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania Democratic Party appealed the ruling to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, whose justice will decide whether to grant or deny the appeal.
“They’re appealing — I wonder why they’re appealing,” Trump said. “All we want is to have people watch while they do the tabulation.”
The president added that places like “Detroit and Philadelphia cannot be responsible for engineering the outcome of a very important presidential race.”
“There is absolutely no legitimate reason why they would not want to have people watching this process, because if its straight, they should be proud of it,” Trump said. “They’re trying, obviously, to commit fraud and there is no question about that.”
Trump went on to call Philadelphia a “corrupt Democrat machine.”
Meanwhile, the president urged his Democratic rival Joe Biden to “clarify” what type of votes should be counted.
“I challenge Joe and every Democrat to clarify that they only want legal votes — they say the word votes — we want legal votes to be counted,” Trump said. “Openness and transparency, no illegal votes cast after Election Day.”
Biden, earlier in the day, said that he believed that “each ballot must be counted,” and urged supporters to stay “calm.”
“Each ballot must be counted and thats what we’re going to see going through now and that’s how it should be,” Biden said Thursday afternoon. “Democracy is sometimes messy and sometimes includes patience as well.”
Trump maintained that he and his campaign “want an honest election, we want an honest count and we want honest people working back there.”
How did the Democrats even think that this outrageous theft of the 2020 Presidential Election would go unnoticed?
It is simple.
The Democrat Elite view themselves as superior to average Americans.
A while back, Washington Post national political correspondent Dave Weigel referred to President Trump’s supporters in no uncertain terms as “rubes” during an appearance on a left-wing podcast.
Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States of America on November 8, 2016 with 46% of the vote.
Going into the election, the gaping maw that is America’s Political Division was more cavernous as ever.
Those of us who live in America’s Heartland, between the coasts, continue to support the man whom we elected to the most powerful office in the Free World…because he is not a politician…which makes the Far Left Democrats and the Vichy Republicans like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, hate him even more.
Liberals who seem to spend their entire day on Social Media posting fake news stories, pulling “facts” out of their hindquarters, and posting anything and everything that they can, in order to to support this brazen attempt to deny President Trump the reelection which he has earned, are probably in diabetic shock from consuming too many Cheetos and donuts in their Mom’s basement, as they attempt to comprehend what I am writing.
Here’s the deal, Snowflakes…
None of these fake news stories, Democrat-heavy polls, photoshopped pictures, and stupid Occupy Democrat Memes on Facebook designed to somehow add credence to the out-of-control actions of the Democrats behind this attempted coup are making any difference to average Americans.
The Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and Left Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, continue through their sheer arrogance and hatred for the traditional American Way of Life, to not only distance themselves from the people whom they continue to claim that they “love”…Average Working Class Americans, but to also attempt to take their Constitutional Freedoms away.
Yet still, they expect us to believe the the rigged ballot counting and the outrageous fraud which they are desperately trying in a vain attempt get Trump out of office, backed by the propaganda which they are distributing through the Fake News Media and which Liberal Trolls are posting on Social Media ad nauseam, so that they and the rest of the “useful idiots”, in their shared madness, can somehow get a frail, demented Joe Biden into the Oval Office.
Americans do not care what the Far left Democratic Politicians on Capitol Hill and Main Stream Media “journalists” such as Dave Wiegel think.
To put it mildly and in Marital Terms, which even the Liberal Trolls who inhabit President Trump’s Twitter Account can understand, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party and their minions in the MSM and on Social Media are no longer “evenly yoked”.
The Democrats have become the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who, as Dave Wiegel so clearly demonstrated, look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.
The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted in 2016 and somehow, still want, the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.
Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, Snowflakes?
The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we had suffered under for 8 interminable years on November 8th, 2016.
The Oxford Dictionaries define the word “mandate” as
the authority to carry out a policy or course of action, regarded as given by the electorate to a candidate or party that is victorious in an election.
Guess what, Democratic Elite, George Soros, Barack Hussein Obama, Main Stream Media, Facebook and Internet Trolls, Hollywood Celebrities, and the rest of you still throwing a National Temper Tantrum?
Average Americans, the “Deplorables” between the coasts whom Democrats and the MSM “journalists” like Dave Wiegel continue to insult, ridicule, and threaten to disarm on a daily basis, still support and appreciate president Donald J. Trump.
Because it is evident by what he has accomplished since he took office that President Donald J. Trump is working hard to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Illegitimi non carborundum, Mr. President.
“Rube”, my hindquarters.
KEEP AMERICA GREAT 2020
Until He Comes,
