All aboard, or at least 70 million will be on board as the Trump campaign train is getting ready to once again head out and rally. Instead of using the rallies to get out and vote, they will be focused on the ‘ongoing litigation” as he continues to challenge the results of the election.
Trump is reportedly going to be bringing evidence with him to the rallies as he hopes to draw the voter fraud issue to the forefront. The president will apparently use obituaries of people who allegedly voted but in reality are dead, as one of his examples of the fraud. Trump campaign officials have alleged that more than 21,000 votes had been cast in the name of dead people in Pennsylvania alone.
The Trump campaign has already dispatched recount teams to Georgia, Arizona and Pennsylvania. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina offered his support for the president over the weekend on Fox News saying, “If Republicans don’t challenge and change the U.S. election system, there will never be another Republican president elected again.”
The goal of the rallies is to raise enough doubt about the results in a number of the swing states that it will pressure the states to open their own investigations and possibly also cause them to trigger their own recounts. Doing so would help buy the Trump legal team more time to advance their litigation through the courts.
No word yet on when the rallies may get underway, but it’s pretty safe to say the president’s Twitter feed may provide that information soon.
