Trump Makes Wildest Claim Yet About 2020 Election



Donald Trump

Donald Trump this week juiced up his election-fraud lies this week, claiming that some people went back and voted up to 28 times on the same day in the 2020 election to cheat him out of a second term in office.

Trump’s wild claim came during an interview on a podcast with far-right conspiracy theorist Dinesh D’Souza, who directed “2,000 Mules,” a widely debunked documentary that claims “ballot mules” inserted armloads of votes for Joe Biden into several drop boxes.

D’Souza, who was pardoned by then-resident Trump in 2018 after pleading guilty to making illegal donations to a GOP Senate candidate, asked Trump: “It seems to me that what you’re saying is that you think that there was cheating all different ways. ‘2,000 Mules’ may have captured one of the ways, but there were other formers of cheating going on as well, correct?”

“Yeah, ‘2,000 Mules’ was one way,” Trump replied. “That was a very conclusive way because you were taking government tapes. … And then, of course, they voted six, seven, eight times. As much as they could in the local area. Some of the people went back, I guess they said 28 times in one day, to vote at different places.”

Trump alleged the ballot stuffers didn’t overdo it because that would have been detectable. “They’re very smart,” Trump said.

As usual, Trump did not say where he got that information.

The former president’s promotion of his election lies comes as a newly released poll revealed that Republicans’ loyalty to him was dipping and some GOP lawmakers are now openly opposing his presidential run in 2024.
