Trump Freely Explains How He Plans To Steal The Next Election (VIDEO)

Former president Donald Trump in video for Pennsylvania Republicans

A year ago, former "defeated" President Trump led an angry and violent mob in an attack of our country and the electoral process. The January 6 insurrection was clearly a last-ditch effort of a malignant narcissist to interfere with the constitutionally mandated duties of Congress. Thanks to brave Capitol and Metropolitan Police officers--and Vice President Pence's refusal to go along with Trump's coup--the insurrection was a failure. However, the damage to our democracy was done and, worse yet, future insurrections are now a constant fear.

But the defeat has only caused our man-baby former president to double down on his attacks on our elections.

Not only has Trump denied any responsibility, but he's also had the gall to claim it was a peaceful and patriotic event and that the real "terror" was the stealing of votes. Even though he absolutely fails to provide any evidence to support his outrageously bonkers claims about the 2020 election being stolen, Trump continues to paint his loss as some sort of deep-state conspiracy. Worse yet, he's mow openly explaining how he will rig future elections in his favor.

In a video produced for a group of Republicans in Pennsylvania, Trump lays out his vision for stealing future elections. He believes Republicans should spend more campaign cash for offices that have jurisdiction over election processes, such as secretaries of state.

“We have to be a lot sharper the next time when it comes to counting the vote. There's a famous saying that sometimes the vote counter is more important than the candidate. And we can't let that ever, ever happen again. They have to get a lot tougher and smarter...I consider it completely unimportant who in the Party will vote, or how. But what is extraordinarily important is this—who will count the votes, and how.”

Clearly, the former "defeated" president has no interest in learning from his loss and doing everything to fix the mistakes of the past. Rather, his lust for attention and bruised ego warp everything he says and does, even if it means staging even deadlier attacks on our democracy .
