Trump’s claim that 3-5 million illegal votes were cast for Hillary - thus costing him the popular vote - is a load of shit

"You have people that are registered, who are dead, who are illegals who are in two states. You have people registered in two states. They're registered in a New York and a New Jersey. They vote twice. There are millions of votes, in my opinion."

That’s what Donald Trump told ABC’s David Muir when questioned about the claim he made to a bipartisan group of congressional leaders that he lost the popular vote because 3-5 million illegal ballots were cast for Hillary.

Trump is damaging his credibility. His past tweets and this outlandish voter fraud claim show that he is suffering from recurring diarrhea of the mouth. Trump’s claim that 3-5 million illegal votes were cast for Hillary - thus costing him the popular vote - is a load of shit.

Of course there is some voter fraud in almost every election. I’m sure there were the usual dead people voting for Hillary in Chicago and the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. And I’m sure some people cast multiple votes. And I’m also sure that some illegal immigrants cast their votes for Clinton. But 3-5 million illegal votes, that is absolutely ridiculous.

As for the illegal voting by illegal immigrants, their numbers will be miniscule. While Latinos did vote in record numbers, you usually have to drag them kicking and screaming to the polls - and those are U.S. citizens. So, what makes anyone but a lunatic think that a significant number of illegals went to the polls?

I like what Trump has done since he assumed the Office of President. He is funding the wall he promised to build along our border with Mexico. He has ordered the hiring of an additional 5,000 Border Patrol agents. He will withhold government funding for sanctuary cities. He has taken steps to dismantle Obamacare. He has restored construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Keystone XL Pipeline. He has ordered a government hiring freeze with the exception of the military. He has withdrawn the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership. And, of course, I like it that Trump is halting Obama’s last minute transfer of $221 million to the Palestinian Authority.

Now Trump wants an investigation into his proclaimed massive voter fraud. That investigation will uncover some voter fraud. Yes, a number of dead people voted and a number of people voted more than once. And even if a substantial number of illegals voted, the total number of fraudulent ballots cast will only number in the thousands, not in the millions. Thus the investigation will turn out to be a waste of taxpayer money.

If there were only some medication Trump could take to stop his recurring diarrhea of the mouth.

Oh by the way, there is proof that some people are registered to vote in two states. Trump’s daughter Tiffany was registered in both Pennsylvania and New York. And White House strategist Steve Bannon was registered in both Florida and New York. Neither voted twice - Tiffany and Bannon cast their ballots in New York. Then there is his Senior Adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner who is registered in both New Jersey and New York. And Steven Mnuchin, Trump’s nominee for Treasury Secretary, is registered to vote in both California and New York.

Trump has done more good in his first week in office than any other president. Come on BGB quit bashing the guy! He also believes Obama was born in Kenya. So do I. Yesterday he had a 59% approval rating. Now that makes him very popular with the citizens, just not the media.

Anon, I agree with you on Trump's first week in office. But then he let's his mouth overload his ass by making a ridiculous claim that massive voter fraud cost him the popular vote. He's only hurting himself when he does that and it's not the first time he's believed matters that are simply not true. If pointing that out is bashing Trump, so be it.

Now you reveal yourself as a birther. I for one do not believe Obama was born in Kenya. But what difference does it make? Obama was elected twice as our president, period!

Questioning Obama's legitimacy based on his place of birth is no different than Congressman John Lewis declaring that he does not recognize Trump as a "legitimate president" because he thinks the big, bad Russians destroyed Hillary's candidacy. The Republican sore losers in Obama's case and the Democratic sore losers in Trump's case need to stop bellyaching and accept the reality that their candidate lost.
