Trump said: “If you count legitimate votes, I can win easily. If you count illegal votes, they (Democrats) may try to steal our election.” Trump continued: “They tried to steal the election, they Trying to rig the election, we cannot let this happen. They are clearly trying to commit fraud, there is no doubt about it.”

It is dangerous and wrong, and it destroys the foundation upon which this country is built.”
