President Donald Trump openly told his supporters to vote twice in this year’s presidential election during an event in North Carolina, breaking the law in the process and demonstrating that the only real voter fraud is coming from his camp.
Trump has been railing against vote by mail even though it has been a proven method of voting since the Civil War and several states have been doing it for years with little to no instances of voter fraud.
It’s obvious that Trump is desperately trying to suppress the vote since Democratic nominee Joe Biden is beating him in the polls. To that end, Trump’s desperation to win and avoid prosecution resulted in him resorting to telling his supporters to commit voter fraud by mailing in a vote and then voting again in person.
“So let them send it in and let them go vote, and if their system’s as good as they say it is, then obviously they won’t be able to vote,” Trump said. “If it isn’t tabulated, they’ll be able to vote. So that’s the way it is. And that’s what they should do.”
Again, this is voter fraud and telling voters to commit voter fraud is a felony.
Twitter users threw the book at Trump.

Today, the President of the United States told his voters to vote twice. He actually did.
And no Republican will say a damn thing. They ALL must lose.

Turns out, in fact, criminal voter fraud exists
In North Carolina, it’s “unlawful…for any person with intent to commit a fraud to register or vote…more than 1 time, OR TO INDUCE ANOTHER TO DO SO” h/t @jgeltzer @JoshStein_ isn’t this a crime in NC?

The president is urging you to commit a felony—one for which you, though not he, could actually get prosecuted. Be careful whom you listen to for advice about how to conduct yourself during this election. https://t.co/tsKj9gunDc

Hey Barr, finally found an actual case of voter fraud worth looking at. A sitting public official calling for voters to vote twice!

Enough is enough. Trump has now openly committed a felony on television in his desperation to win a second term. It’s time for him to be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. This lawlessness cannot be allowed to pass.
