While speaking to supporters during his watch party of the Iowa caucus results, President Trump promised that he would make election integrity one of his top priorities should he win the presidency later this year.

He first cited a poll that was supposedly asked of caucus goers whether they believed the 2020 presidential election was “fair,” and, according to Trump, 82 percent of respondents believed the race was unfair.

Trump reiterated audience members that he would “straighten out” future elections if elected by implementing voter I.D. and eliminating the controversial mail-in voting.

“We’re gonna try and go to paper ballots as soon as possible,” stated Trump. “Voter I.D., one-day elections—you know we have these elections that last for 62 days, and if you need some more time, take as much time as you want, and so many bad things happen.”

He continued, “We have to get rid of mail-in ballots because once you have mail-in ballots, you have crooked elections.”

Trump came on top during the Iowa caucuses on Monday, winning a historic victory in the fight for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination by the highest margin ever recorded.

51.0 percent of Iowa caucus goers supported Trump, while Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came in a distant second with 21.2 percent support.

Former S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley placed third at 19.1 percent, and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy took fourth at 7.7 percent.
