President Donald Trump unloads his latest election complaints and calls to ‘turn over the election’ in 46-minute solo White House video that he releases on Facebook
- The president posted a 46-minute video with his unsubstantiated claims
- He complained about voting machines and ballots that came in election night
- Predicted what he was saying ‘will be demeaned and disparaged’
- Said he didn’t want a revote but wanted to ‘overturn’ the election ‘immediately’
- He called the election a ‘total catastrophe’
President Donald Trump released a bizarre 46-minute video that he posted on Facebook where he called for the election to be ‘overturned’ and admitted his remarks would be ‘disparaged.’
Rather than pick any number of venues where he might deliver important remarks before an audience or with reporters present who might ask questions, Trump spoke to a camera from the White House, with repeated and awkward cuts by editors.
‘Even what I’m saying now will be demeaned and disparaged,’ he predicted as he laid out claim after claim, including several that have been put forward by his legal team and been debunked.
President Donald Trump called for the vote in swing states he lost to be ‘overturned’ and claimed the election was a ‘total catastrophe,’ despite his attorney general and a raft of judges not accepting claims of widespread fraud
At one point, he held up a chart purporting to show a scheme to steal an election, but a spike in votes coming in has been identified as Milwaukee County votes coming in. President-elect Joe Biden performed well there, as have past Democratic candidates.
He made repeated claims of fraud, dead people voting, mysterious anomalies in voting machines, and alleged corruption in big cities with Democratic votes that went for Joe Biden – despite his attorney general and a raft of judges not accepting claims of widespread fraud
‘This election was rigged. Everyone knows it. I don’t mind if I lose an election, but I want to lose an election fair and square. What I don’t want to do is have it stolen from the American people,’ Trump complained.
There were five editing jumps in the first three minutes of the video alone, giving in an awkward pace despite being shot at the center of U.S. Government power.
Biden’s vote approached 81 million votes Wednesday, and his leads is well beyond 6 million, while he is electoral college win is shaping up to be 306 to 232.
Trump, though, called the election a ‘total catastrophe’ and said the results couldn’t be trusted.
He complained about ‘machinery that was stopped during certain parts of the evening miraculously to open with more votes.’
‘Many people in the media and even judges so far have refused to accept it. They know it’s true. They know it’s there. They know who won the election. But they refuse to say: you’re right. Our country needs somebody to say you’re right,’ he said.
He made claims of dead people voting, although several examples brought forth by his lawyers have gone bust.
‘Millions of votes were cast illegally in the swing states alone,’ he claimed.
‘If that’s the case, the results of the individual swing states must be overturned and overturned immediately,’ Trump said.
‘Some people say that’s too far out. That’s too harsh. Well does that mean we take a president and we’ve just elected a president, where the votes were fraudulent? No. It means you have to turn over the election.’
‘What a disaster election this was. A total catastrophe,’ he said.
He said ‘hopefully’ the Supreme Court of the U.S. will ‘see it’ and ‘do what’s right for our country.’
Trump spoke a day after Attorney General Bill Barr said there was not enough evidence of fraud to overturn the results.
‘Maybe you’ll have a revote, but I don’t think that’s appropriate. When those votes are corrupt, when they’re irregular, when they get caught, they’re terminated, and I very easily win,’ Trump said.
Earlier Wednesday, former Trump national security advisor Mike Flynn blasted out an article that called on Trump to declare martial law and have the military oversee a revote.
