In his farewell address to the nation, President Donald Trump told the American people that the work of “Making America Great Again” had only just begun.
According to one of the former-President’s key advisors, Jason Miller, President Trump has a wide variety of initiatives he wants to flesh out, including the possibility of a new political entity. But nothing is bigger or more important than election integrity.
After traveling with the Trump’s in their final trip aboard Air Force One as the First Family, Miller said the former-President has some primary goals to accomplish over the next two years. Chief among those goals are “winning back the House and the Senate for Republicans in 2022 to make sure that we can stop the Democratic craziness.”

But Miller hit on perhaps President Trump’s most passionate goal. “You’re also going to see him emerge as the nation’s leader on ballot and voting integrity,” he said.
Miller said President Trump understands that election integrity reforms will never take place inside the beltway because Democrats and Progressives don’t believe the system is damaged; they don’t see any threat to America’s election process.
Instead, Miller said, President Trump will work around the partisan Washington insider apparatus to work with individual states and state legislatures to craft, advance, and codify elect reform legislation.
“As we saw, an important thing to keep in mind, so much of our debate between the election and up until a couple weeks ago was over these Article 2 abuses and the Constitution, where only the state legislatures can actually go and set” the rules for mail-in voting, Miller explained.
“This is something we’re going to start ramping up, not immediately,” he said. “We’ll give them a little bit of a transition period, but this is critical and we have to do it.”

With a Democrat and Progressive controlled Legislative Branch – and with Joe Biden in the White House effectively executing a third term of Obama-era policies, Miller alluded to the fact that it’s highly unlikely Republicans in Congress would be able – or willing – to champion any election integrity reform bills.
“A number of things could be done legislatively but I think President Trump also looks at Capitol Hill and realizes Democrats are in charge of both the House and the Senate and, quite frankly though, even if we had Republicans controlling much of this, they might go to block some of these things. We see how the DC insiders are just slow to move,” Miller explained.
Hitting on a key reality, that the establishment GOP is slow to act and that even when they do it is without a definitive conservative voice in championing the American people, Miller called out the insider GOP leadership for criticism.
“I mean, how many years did Republicans sit there and do nothing about Section 230 abuses? How many years did Republicans sit there on Capitol Hill, even though we had both the House and the Senate, and never did anything about the spying and cheating that we saw from President Obama and his administration, everything he did in the transition in 2016 when Joe Biden was screaming, ‘Logan Act’ and all the abuses we saw Susan Rice and all the other things. Republicans never got to the bottom of that,” he asked, leaving the answer for the American people to decide.
