In the first television interviews of his post-presidency, Donald Trump repeated that the election was stolen from him.
Trump emerged this week for interviews with Fox News Channel, Newsmax and One America News Network tied to the death of Rush Limbaugh.
Nearly a month after he left office, Trump drove his point home on each network:
- "The election was stolen," he told OANN's White House correspondent Jenn Pellegrino. "We were robbed. It was a rigged election."
- "We did win the election, as far as I'm concerned. It was disgraceful what happened," he said to Greg Kelly on Newsmax.
In response, Kelly referred to "President Trump" and "Joe Biden."
"A lot of people are in awe of you, and I am one of those people," Kelly told Trump.
- "You would have had riots going all over the place if that happened to a Democrat," he said when interviewed by Harris Faulkner and Bill Hemmer on Fox News Channel.
Hemmer asked Trump if he had spoken to Limbaugh post-election.
"Rush thought we won, and so do I," Trump said.
So, in fact, do many of his supporters. Various recent polls have found that up to 95% of Republicans say that Joe Biden was not legitimately elected president last November.
When Trump supporter Mike Lindell, CEO of My Pillow, started making election fraud claims in a Newsmax interview on Feb. 2, anchor Bob Sellers interrupted him to read a statement saying that "election results in every state were certified and Newsmax accepts the results as legitimate and final. The courts have also accepted that view."
When Lindell pressed his claims, Sellers walked off the set.
For the first time in history, 18 States filed a lawsuit at the Supreme Court asking to overturn the election. Where there's smoke there's fire. They weren't just playing politics. The election was hijacked.
Never in the history of America has government turned its head to crime. Some feel that the commucrats have it figured out to stay in power forever. I don't believe they do. I believe that the tyranny of the extreme leftist revolutionaries will fail. Our citizens must resist the overthrow of our Republic by the commucrat crime syndicate.
It's fundamentally wicked to rig an election. That's what happened.
At the return of Jesus these poor Godless Liberals and Democrats are going to be weeping and moaning until they finally realize what they knew all along, God is real, and terror befalls them for their present actions.
When precincts have more ballots than registered voters you should be concerned about the legitimacy of that election.
Lefties can't get shed of this election because it was a giant fraud.
That is why they are demanding we shut up.
A) Over half a week, in a developed country, in the 21st century, to "count votes" and "determine the outcome"? -- Nonsense.
B) Stopping counting, overnight increases in how many votes there were left to count, and restarting? -- Nonsense.
"Democrat"/RINO operatives reversed the real election results.
The more the irregularities are discussed, the more obvious it is.
That election needs to be overturned ... President Trump won.
