Trump Stops In Middle Of Tax Speech To Revive His Conspiracy Theory About Voter Fraud

326

Former reality show star Donald Trump literally threw his prepared remarks in the air while in West Virginia where he was supposed to talk about tax reform. Instead, he smeared the caravan of migrants, then launched into a rant to claim that voter fraud is a widespread issue. And of course, Trump singled out California, a state which he lost, and he did so without one shred of evidence to back up his claim.

Trump said that Americans in California cast ballots “many times.”

“In many places, like California, the same person votes many times. You probably heard about that. They always like to say ‘oh that’s a conspiracy theory,’” Trump said.
“Not a conspiracy theory, folks. Millions and millions of people. And it’s very hard because the state guards their records. They don’t want to see it.”

And that is the result of Trump going off script.

Yes, it is a conspiracy theory because there is zero evidence to support that claim. After the 2016 election, Trump tried to prove that he won the popular vote by alleging repeatedly and without evidence that voter fraud was widespread. Trump said it cost him the popular vote.

He just can’t get over Hillary winning the popular vote. Trump is claiming that “millions of millions” of people voted illegally because he lost the popular vote by nearly 2.9 million votes.
