Trump Warns: Hillary Will Steal This Election
After the media lovefest that was the Democratic National Convention last week, Donald Trump promised that he was done playing nice. He vowed to “take the gloves off” from here on out, and on Monday, he proved that he meant what he said. For the first time since securing the Republican nomination, Trump said in Ohio that he was concerned that the general election was going to be just as problematic as the primaries.
“Bernie shouldn’t have made a deal but he lost,” Trump said, referring to the astounding irregularities in the DNC primaries that allowed Hillary Clinton to become the nominee. “It’s rigged. And I am afraid the election is going to be rigged.
“First of all, it’s rigged and I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged, to be honest. I have to be honest because I think my side was rigged,” Trump warned.
Later, in an interview with Sean Hannity, Trump doubled down on his assertion. “I’m telling you, Nov. 8, we’d better be careful, because that election is going to be rigged,” Trump said. “And I hope the Republicans are watching closely or it’s going to be taken away from us.”
The liberal media is mocking Trump for these comments, claiming that he’s simply trying to make up excuses for losing in November. If he can blame it on a rigged system, he won’t have to endure the blow to his ego.
Well, what else can they say? They can’t take a serious look at his allegations, because that would require them to tell the truth about the Democratic primaries. It would require them to explain why Bernie Sanders won state after state while the delegates went to his opponent. It would force them to stop musing about a worldwide conspiracy involving Trump and Vladimir Putin and address the facts found in the DNC leaked emails. It might even force them to defend the stunning case-by-case collapse of voter ID laws in several states, coming one right after the other, as though coordinated by some higher power. No, no, they don’t want to get involved in any of that. They might accidentally reveal the truth of this election to their viewers.
No one paying attention can dismiss Trump’s concerns. This is the first major presidential candidate in our lifetimes to have bucked the Washington establishment. He is promising to roll back decades of foreign and domestic policy supported by the leaders of both parties. Do you really think these powerful factions are just going to stand aside and let something as puny as democracy ruin the good thing they’ve got going? Oh no. Not if they can help it.
All the pieces are in place for unprecedented fraud. A nominee willing to do anything, legal or illegal, to win the White House. A computerized voting system in many states that is open to hacking. Fallen voter ID laws that could easily allow illegal immigrants and other non-eligible people to vote. A media gleefully willing to cover it all up and sweep all controversies under the rug if it means electing President Hillary Clinton.
If Trump is going to win, he’s going to have to do it in a landslide. If it’s close…well, we’ve already seen that the Democrats are happy to put their thumb on the scale.
