President Trump drew attention on Saturday to the double standard of treatment between people who “rigged the election” and those who want to know the truth about “what the hell happened!”
Trump’s comments were made in Columbia, South Carolina, at the state’s Silver Elephant Dinner, where he delivered keynote remarks to forward-thinking Republican supporters and donors.
“Only a party that cheats in elections would make it illegal to question those elections,” he explained.
He added, “…They don’t go after the people that RIGGED THE ELECTION, they go after the people who want to find out WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED.”
The crowd loudly applauded his comments.
Trump’s remarks come as he has been charged with four counts in a federal case in Washington, D.C., related to the events of Jan. 6, 2021.
He has been charged so far with conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights.
Since 2020, election security has come under intense scrutiny in America amid elongated vote-counting processes and alleged irregularities with voting machine systems.
President Trump has consistently railed against the “rigged and stolen” election of 2020 and pointed out that the latest indictments and arraignments were a new form of “election interference.”
According to RSBN, Trump has even asked the U.S. Supreme Court to intercede in the lawfare that he says is being used to stop him from running for president again in 2024. He noted that the duplicitous justice system was “not a level playing field.”
Last week during remarks that he made to the Alabama GOP Dinner, he noted that despite the ongoing attacks, “We have the highest poll numbers we’ve ever had and that’s because the people of this country are DISGUSTED by what’s happening.”
