WATCH: Trump Implies Corruption In Arizona Vote-Counting – “All Of a Sudden Out Of the Wilderness They Find a Lot Of Votes”


President Donald Trump went after Arizona’s electoral process and the Democrats’ supposed influence on it. Without any evidence to back it up, he implied that corruption was to blame for Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9) taking a slim 9,000 vote lead in the Senate contest against Rep. Martha McSally (R-CD2).

The President was asked a question about the size of the Democrats’ majority in the U.S. House of Representatives next year. He quickly segued into a boast about how he has rooted out corruption in the FBI and Department of Justice – “We’re getting to the bottom of it and I’ve done a helluva job” – before raising the Arizona vote-counting.

“But, it is interesting. It always seems to go the way of the Democrats. Now in Arizona, all of a sudden, out of the wilderness they find a lot of votes. And she’s – the other candidate – is just winning by a hair.”

Here is President Trump’s entire response about the Tuesday election, as the context is important. The Arizona comment is at the 1:05 mark.

Trump then quickly repeated a rant about corruption in the elections process in Broward County (Florida). The Arizona comments were sandwiched by his corruption remarks, and was in concert with comments today from his 2020 campaign chair. Brad Parscale, alleging fraud.

There is no evidence of any “found” votes or any “trickery” or “fraud” in Arizona’s ballot processing and counting process, and unfounded accusations against the integrity of Arizona’s elections – especially coming from the President – is irresponsible, reckless and could be construed as un-American.

  1. Shhhhhhh! I’m very busy stealing an election. Gotta’ get my Soros paycheck!

    The GOP does voter suppression in plain site, and they brag about it when they think they’re behind closed doors, they hate hate hate democracy and they hate other Americans, and they accuse other people of crimes with zero evidence.

    Is it legal to accuse people of crimes with no evidence? Trump says it “always seems to go the way of the Dems”? Really? Where was he in 2000?

    They did elect a dead Republican pimp in Nevada, though, so as corrupt as they are, they still have a sense of humor.
