President Trump and Speaker Johnson unveil STRONG election integrity effort to secure 2024

President Donald Trump welcomed Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, R-La., to his home, Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, on Friday afternoon, where the two leaders unveiled a new effort to secure America’s election processes.

Trump introduced the speaker but first spent a few moments emphasizing the crisis at the southern border, which he said had facilitated the immigration of 15 million illegal migrants.

“I would like to demand we close our border,” Trump said, talking to Biden. “…We would have 15 million [migrants] already, some are terrorists…they come from all over the world, not just South America.”

He added, “Our country’s like a dumping ground, we’re going to have it stopped.”

Trump emphasized that November 5 would be “the most important day in the history of the country,” as it will give Americans the chance to restore safety and security.

When Speaker Johnson took the podium, he made a direct connection between the southern border crisis and the election integrity issues that have plagued the U.S. since the 2020 presidential election.

“Everywhere we go, one of the first questions that people ask about is this issue with election integrity,” Johnson noted, pointing that it was the most popular question besides concerns about the border.

“Election integrity is TIED to border security,” Johnson explained. “…the official number is nine million encounters just at the southern border…the actual number is closer to 16 million.”

He lamented Joe Biden’s “64 specific executive actions” that facilitated the wide-open border policies, and stated that he and President Trump believe that the reason this is happening is so that Democrats can create a multi-million-man voting bloc for November.

“The House Republicans are introducing a bill that will require proof of citizenship to vote,” Speaker Johnson announced, decrying how ridiculous it was that states are prohibited from asking someone if they are a citizen when they register to vote.

The legislation, according to Johnson, will accomplish the following:

  • Require proof of citizenship to vote,
  • Put safeguards on the election system in the U.S.,
  • Require states to remove non-citizens from their voter rolls.

Speaker Johnson concluded, “We will do everything within our power to ensure that we do have free and fair elections in this country…it’s the basis of who we are as a nation.”
