As President Donald Trump ramps up his public appearances ahead of the upcoming midterm elections, he said in an interview on Tuesday that people may finally be held accountable for the “rigged” 2020 election which many Republican voters believe was stolen.
“We got ’em by surprise in 2016, and they said, ‘We’re never going to let that happen again,’ and they cheated,” said Trump in a clip posted by his spokesperson Liz Harrington. “And it’s a shame that they’re allowed to get away – and let’s see whether or not they do get away, because I don’t think they will get away with it.”
In addition to implying that those responsible for fraudulently swaying the 2020 election could face consequences, Trump added “all that information is coming out.”
“When you say polls came out, yeah a number of polls came out that I’m beating him, but we beat him on Nov. 3. By a lot. It was a Rigged Election,” he stated.
“And all that information is coming out,” Trump continued. “You see it coming out on a daily basis.”
Since the November election, audits and other actions to ensure election integrity have taken place across the country to address the unprecedented level of voter irregularities that occurred in several states, including Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, and others.
During the last week of August in Georgia, the secretary of state’s office canceled over 100,000 invalid voter registrations to prevent fraud in future elections. Simultaneously, Georgia’s DeKalb County revealed that 43,000 ballots violated election law in 2020, which is nearly 400 percent of Biden’s margin of victory.
Considering that Joe Biden received Georgia’s 16 electoral votes after receiving just 11,779 more votes than President Trump, these reports could have drastically changed the election results.
Arizona is currently wrapping up the Maricopa County audit which is set to be revealed in the coming weeks. Wisconsin’s state GOP just embarked on a new election audit to ensure the state had a free and fair election.
As light continues to be shed on new information pertaining to how voter fraud affected the outcome of the 2020 election, those responsible could be held accountable at last for disenfranchising the votes of nearly 80 million Americans.
