President Trump blasted Joe Biden for traveling to Pennsylvania, stating “his visit is a joke,” as the state launches an investigation into the 2020 presidential election.
“Joe Biden is going to Pennsylvania today in a rush in order to stop the Forensic Audit that the Pennsylvania Republican Senate is in the process of doing. Philadelphia was a cesspool of corruption, which will soon be revealed by the audit,” Trump wrote in a statement from his Save America PAC on Tuesday.
Joe Biden traveled to Pennsylvania this week as part of an attempt to intimidate lawmakers from moving forward with the audit and passing stricter election laws.
Speaking at the National Constitution Center, Biden attacked Trump and the Pennsylvania GOP for launching an audit investigation, the New York Post reported.
“The 21st century Jim Crow assault is real. It’s unrelenting. We’re gonna challenge it, vigorously,” Biden said.
“Audits and recounts were conducted in Arizona and Wisconsin. In Georgia, it was recounted three times. The big lie is just that, a big lie. The 2020 election — it’s not hyperbole to suggest — is the most examined and the fullest expression of the will of people in the history of this nation.”
Biden continued, “we continue to see an example of human nature at its worst, something darker and more sinister. In America, if you lose, you accept the results, you follow the Constitution. You try again. You don’t call facts fake and then try to bring down the American experiment just because you’re unhappy.”
Trump issued a fiery response where he did not hold back.
In his statement, Trump suggested that Biden traveled to Philadelphia, “one of the most corrupt cities in the Country,” to interfere with the 2020 election audit.
“Why are they so concerned that a President, who never goes anywhere, would hop onto beautiful Air Force One and head to Philadelphia if it were an honest election? Why not let the audit go forward and make everybody, on both sides, happy? The results will be the results,” said Trump.
“But they know it was not an honest election, Philadelphia was one of the most corrupt cities in the Country—and so is Detroit, and so is Milwaukee, and so is Atlanta, and Pittsburgh, and Oakland, and Baltimore. Corruption has gone on for years, but in the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, with the mail-in ballots and the use of Covid to cheat, corruption reached new levels,” he continued.
Trump ended his statement by telling Biden to “let the Forensic Audit go” and to not “fight it.”
“Let the Forensic Audit go, Joe. Don’t fight it. Show them how honest it was.”
