White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that President Donald Trump will defeat his opponent Joe Biden by some 40,000 votes in Pennsylvania. The McEnany’s statement comes after the Republican campaign launched a legal battle over irregularities and fraud in the state governed by the Democratic opposition.
In a dialogue with Fox News, McEnany recalled that the multiple complaints against Philadelphia are not new, but that the state’s largest city “has a history of very peculiar results.”
She cited as an example the 2012 presidential elections, when Republican candidate Mitt Romney won zero votes in 59 districts, which “is very unlikely and curious indeed” she said.
She also said that in the following years the Democratic Party was accused of stuffing the ballot box with fraudulent ballots.
“So we want to be on alert,” she said.
At the end of Election Day, the results favored President Trump notably in the key states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. With victory already declared in Florida, Texas, and several other states, the president’s re-election was on track.
However, the count stopped at midnight, the numbers seemed static and suddenly in the early morning, Joe Biden received about 300,000 mail-in ballots (this is what is currently known and the number could potentially be higher) between Wisconsin and Michigan, leaving the Democrat as the winner.
The situation raised suspicions because in a tight election that suddenly such a large number of mail-in ballots for a single candidate would arrive, it does not follow any logic.
In addition, Republican poll watchers were being intimidated or not allowed to go near the polls at all, as was reported in the case of Philadelphia.
That’s why President Trump announced that Republicans would take the cases to the Supreme Court.
“That’s what this lawsuit is all about, free, transparent, observation of what’s going on in Philadelphia,” McEnany said of the complaint that Trump’s campaign filed on this issue in the Democratic-held state.
Beyond that, McEnany said the Trump campaign is confident that the president will win the state by at least 40,000 votes.
“This is among one of the most anti-democratic things I’ve ever seen or encountered. And it’s not just here in Philadelphia, this is going on all over the country,” said President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, on Wednesday, Nov. 4, when he held a press conference in Philadelphia where he accused the Democrats of rigging the election with the mail-in ballots.
Giuliani explained that the mail-in ballots that suddenly appeared in the early morning hours of Wednesday, Nov. 4, were not reviewed by any Republican and the law requires that both parties have access to verify and count these votes, precisely to avoid fraud.
“You make certain it’s properly signed on the outside. There’s a signature, You make sure that it’s properly postmarked. You make sure it’s properly addressed, and then you pass on it. A number of these are often challenged by the Democrat representative or their Republican representative. We haven’t had a chance to look at a single one of them,” Giuliani said.
Giuliani stated that the administration has filed lawsuits in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Philadelphia and announced the possibility of filing a national lawsuit for the added mail-in ballots without the supervision of the Republican representative.
“This is a concerted effort of the crooks to run the Democratic Party,” Giuliani said, “20 years, 30 years, 40 years, 50 years, a hundred years of one party rule leads to corruption of all kinds. Voter fraud is one of the biggest, because that’s how you keep your power, but we’re not going to let them get away with it,” he added.
“This election is decided by the people, these people, the elite, they don’t care about the people. The people are the deplorables, the chumps, they’re not important. To President Trump, this is the whole reason that he ran for office,” Giuliani said, adding, “And is the whole reason for which he’s carrying on this campaign, so that your vote can mean something.”
