In an interview with Bill O’Reilly, Donald Trump explained why he was afraid that the election was going to be rigged. He didn’t mention the possibility of actually rigging electronic voter machines in favor of Hillary Clinton. But he did mention voter fraud and what happens when voters aren’t required to show ID. Here’s what he said:
“Well, I’m looking at all of these decisions coming down from the standpoint of identification/voter ID. And I’m saying, what do you mean? You don’t have to have voter ID to now go in and vote, and it’s a little bit scary, and I’ve heard a lot of bad things.
“Four years ago, I was hearing a lot of bad things having to do with the Romney campaign where when the vote came out, there were some districts that were shockingly different from what they were anticipated to be. I’ve been seeing it and I’ve been hearing it a lot. The whole thing with voter ID identification I think is really – I mean people are going to walk in, they are going to vote 10 times maybe. Who knows? They are going to vote 10 times.
“I am very concerned and I hope the Republicans are going to be very watchful, and I hope the authorities are going to be very watchful. Because I want to tell you – I believe it’s going to, just like Bernie Sanders ‘I said it was rigged,’ well it’s rigged here too, believe me. So I just hope the Republicans are going to be very watchful.”
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe showed recently just how easy it was to vote without ID in the state of Michigan. A poll worker informed him that he didn’t need an ID, and that all he needed to do was fill out an affidavit saying that he was who he said he was, and then he could vote.
