President Trump: 'Our Election Now Under Coordinated Assault and Siege'

Nick Kangadis | December 3, 2020

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump delivered what he said might be “the most important speech I’ve ever made.”

Trump’s speech lasted about 45 minutes and detailed information about alleged voter fraud and vote tampering. The president didn’t mince words when it came to the integrity of U.S. elections.

“As president, I have no higher duty than to defend the laws and the Constitution of the United States,” Trump said. “That is why I am determined to protect our election system, which is now under coordinated assault and siege.”

Trump even brought up Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s name when talking about November’s election, intimating that Biden had been advised to take a back seat during the election process because the Democrats felt the results were in the bag for him.

“My opponent was told to stay away from the election, “Trump continued. “‘Don’t campaign. We don’t need you. We’ve got it. This election is done.’ In fact, they were acting like they already knew what the outcome was going to be.”

The president went on to talk about supposed details of impropriety during the election in multiple states, including Michigan, Wisconsin and other swing states.

Trump concluded his remarks by speaking about what could happen if the U.S. doesn’t “root out the fraud.”

“If we don’t root out the fraud, the tremendous and horrible fraud that’s taken place in our 2020 election, we don’t have a country anymore,” Trump said. “So with the resolve and support of the American people, we will restore honesty and integrity to our elections. And we will restore trust in our system of government.”
