During remarks on the Senate ground on Monday, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer known as former President Donald Trump “despicable” for spreading the “big lie” that the election was stolen as a consequence of voter fraud.
CHUCK SCHUMER: In the wake of the 2020 elections, Donald Trump informed a lie, a giant lie, that the election was stolen from him by voter fraud. There was no proof for this. His personal administration concluded that the 2020 election was one of the most secure in his– historical past. His legal professionals had been laughed out of courts, many by Republican judges, some by judges he appointed, Trump appointed. But he saved saying it anyway. He lied over and over and over once more. Donald Trump lied over and over and over once more, poisoning our democracy, lighting a hearth beneath Republican state legislatures, who instantly launched the most sweeping voter suppression effort in a minimum of 80 years.
Just a observe. How despicable a person is Donald Trump? He misplaced an election legitimately. He cannot face that, that it was his failure, and he creates a lie, a giant lie, and wins so many individuals over to that lie, with the assist of information media and different information commentators, who’re mendacity, as properly. And they understand it. Again, Donald Trump, together with his despicable lies, has lit a hearth beneath Republican state legislatures, and so they have launched the most sweeping voter suppression efforts in a minimum of, in a minimum of 80 years.
