President Donald Trump sat down for a special interview with his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., on his popular Rumble show, “Triggered with Donald Trump Jr.,” where he discussed the possibility of winning California, which has generally been viewed as unwinnable by most conservatives.
“Everyone says you can’t win California – I think it’s totally wrong,” President Trump told his son. “They send out like 38 million ballots – they go all over the place. Some people get seven, some people get five, some people get two. They send in these millions and millions of ballots…and I go to California, and I think I’m very popular in California. I think the whole thing is a rigged state.”
He added, “And, you know, anytime you have mail-in ballots, you’re going to have fake elections because it just works that way.”
California has been a notoriously “blue” state for years, despite the rich conservative voting belt that runs through the Central Valley, where the agricultural community voted to elect former Congressman Devin Nunes, who is now the CEO of Truth Social.
Last year, Trump told rallygoers in Greenwood, Nebraska, that he believed California was a “winnable” state, again citing potential fraud as a driving factor behind the Golden State’s supposedly permanent Democrat electoral votes.
“You know, you take California,” he said. “I think we do much better in California…you know they all say that you lose by, automatically, by millions of votes. I don’t believe that.”
RSBN reported that MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who has consistently advocated for cleaning up American election processes, claimed in April 2022 that California was also a hotbed of allegedly fraudulent voting activity.
Per RSBN, a Public Interest Legal Foundation report revealed in January that more than 10 million ballots in California were unaccounted for, while at least 226,250 mail-in ballots were rejected by election officials.
