President Donald Trump released an official Statement from the White House today to address his ongoing effort to “expose the tremendous voter fraud and irregularities” that took place on Election Day.
In a two-minute clip of the statement posted on President Trump’s Twitter account, the President begun by saying “This may be the most important speech I’ve ever made.”
“We used to have what was called ‘Election Day’. Now we have ‘Election days, weeks and months’, and lots of bad things happened during this ridiculous period of time, especially when you have to prove almost nothing to exercise our greatest privilege, the right to vote.”

The President proclaimed that the American election system is “now under coordinated assault and siege.” This comes after many instances of voter fraud and irregularities were reported during hearings held by state legislators in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and Michigan.
He noted that both him and Joe Biden were warned against declaring a “premature victory” and that it would take a significant amount of time to verify the results of the election, as a result of the widespread use of mail-in ballots.
“In fact, they were acting like they already knew what the outcome was going to be. They had it covered, and perhaps they did,” said the President.
“Within days after the election we witnessed an orchestrated effort to anoint a winner, even while many key states were still being counted. The constitutional process must be allowed to continue. We are going to defend the honesty of the vote by ensuring that every legal ballot is counted, and that no illegal ballot is counted.”
At the end of the two minute clip, President Trump 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 all future elections.”
