Trump updates Americans in Tues night presser on fight against 2020 presidential election fraud
As we draw closer to the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, President Trump is intensifying his fight against voter fraud and what many Americans believe is a stolen election. He gave an update from the White House on Tuesday night stating that he would continue fighting and use every legal and constitutional option he has to expose the massive voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“The truth is we won the election by a landslide. We won it big,” Trump said. “By midnight [on Election night] we had a commanding lead in the swing states… these numbers were impossible for Joe Biden to overcome and the Democrats knew it.”
Over 73 million Americans voted for Trump and according to a recent Fox poll, 68% believe the election was rigged and stolen by the Democrats. That indicates the destruction of trust in the American voting system.
Trump opened up his statement with this solemn intonation: “My fellow Americans, today I want to explain to you why I am so determined to pursue every legal and constitutional option available to stop the theft of the presidential election. As president, one of my most solemn duties is to protect the integrity of your sacred right to vote. This year, using the virus as a pretext, Democrat officials in the key swing states illegally violated their own state laws in order to enable, encourage, and facilitate fraud on a scale never before seen in the history of our country. The truth is we won the election by a landslide we won it big today.”
Trump proceeded to break down the alleged Democratic voter fraud in key swing states including Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Arizona.
According to the Trump campaign, every dishonest tactic in the Democrat playbook was utilized in this election:
- Ballot stuffing.
- Dominion machines switching votes from Trump to Biden.
- No signature verification on absentee ballots.
- Kicking out GOP poll observers.
- Counterfeit ballots with machine stamped bubbles for Joe Biden.
- Putting Trump ballots in Biden trays.
- Transporting hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots across state lines.
- Dead people and illegal aliens voting.
- Unexplained ballot dumps and massive spikes for Joe Biden in the dead of the night.
President Trump is not giving up in his fight for justice.
“We cannot allow a completely fraudulent election to stand,” Trump said as he concluded his statement.

One part of his speech rings true for many Americans: “They want us to believe that Joe Biden, who seldom left his basement to campaign, somehow received 11.7 million more votes than Barack Obama and he beat Barack Obama all over the country. It is historically mathematically politically and logically impossible.” Americans see this and it is causing great anger among the populace. The fight against the election results will continue long after Biden takes over the White House many fear.
A number of Republicans are now turning on Trump as they test the direction the political winds are blowing. Wanting to gain favor with the incoming administration, they are jumping ship. Even once-friendly media outlets such as Fox News are now attacking President Trump and trashing those that support his election claims.
Few reported on the President’s voter fraud remarks. They are being squelched on social media and just in general as being baseless and untrue.
Trump is allegedly plotting a final stand in Congress on Jan. 6 over the election. It will involve lodging objections during the typically pro forma congressional certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
THE DEMOCRATS DUMPED HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF BALLOTS IN THE SWING STATES LATE IN THE EVENING. IT WAS A RIGGED ELECTION!!!

Even though the tactic will almost assuredly fail, this will force Republicans in Congress to go on record voting to affirm Biden’s victory. Republican strategists and Trump allies inside and outside Washington said Trump’s core supporters will remember how their lawmakers vote on Jan. 6.
“There’s no base of voters more passionate than President Trump’s,” said Lou Barletta, a former member of Congress and top Trump ally in Pennsylvania. “They are not going away and they will remember who isn’t standing up to fight for President Trump and fair and free elections.”
McConnell has urged his caucus to refrain from supporting challenges to Biden’s victory, a plea that looks increasingly unlikely to succeed. Sen.-elect Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) has signaled he’s likely to endorse a challenge. And Mo Brooks, one of the leaders of the House effort, indicated that multiple GOP senators are expected to sign on.
Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) on Tuesday sent a letter to Texas Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn urging them to join him in challenging Biden’s electors, saying it would be a “disservice to our nation to turn a blind eye” to the allegations of fraud.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who has been among the most prominent, vocal supporters of Trump’s efforts to challenge the election results, framed the Jan. 6 protest differently. He described Congress’ role in finalizing the presidential election as a safety valve granted by the framers of the Constitution to prevent a “stolen” result.
“This is not a game. This is the presidency of the United States and whether or not it’s basically been stolen,” Gingrich said in an interview. He added that if indisputable evidence of such fraud doesn’t materialize between now and Jan. 6, he said there would be “no basis” for a challenge.
