President Donald Trump gave his strong support to a special commission tasked with uncovering voter fraud in the United States, telling the first meeting of the group that it’s time to find out more about illegal votes possibly “canceling out the votes of lawful American citizens.”
“Any form of illegal or fraudulent voting – whether by non-citizens or the deceased,” Mr. Trump said, “must be stopped.”
“Every time voter fraud occurs, it cancels out the vote of a lawful citizen, and undermines democracy,” the President added.
“Can’t let that happen,” Mr. Trump said.
