Trump is accused of ‘incitement of insurrection’ after giving a speech before his supporters stormed the Capitol.

Donald Trump is facing the imminent prospect of becoming the first US president to be impeached twice following an extraordinary breach of the countrys Capitol in Washington, DC, by his supporters.
Democrats led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi are pressuring Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to strip Trump of his power by declaring him unable to fulfil his duties. If Pence refuses, as expected, the group will move forward bringing the impeachment case to the floor as soon as Monday.
Trump is accused of incitement of insurrection after giving an incendiary speech on January 6 in Washington DC before a mob violently attacked the heart of the US government. At least five people were killed in the assault.
Here is the full transcript of Trumps speech:
The media will not show the magnitude of this crowd. Even I, when I turned on today, I looked, and I saw thousands of people here, but you dont see hundreds of thousands of people behind you because they dont want to show that. We have hundreds of thousands of people here, and I just want them to be recognised by the fake news media. Turn your cameras please and show whats really happening out here because these people are not going to take it any longer.
Theyre not going to take it any longer. Go ahead. Turn your cameras, please. Would you show? They came from all over the world, actually, but they came from all over our country. I just really want to see what they do. I just want to see how they covered. Ive never seen anything like it. But it would be really great if we could be covered fairly by the media. The media is the biggest problem we have as far as Im concerned, single biggest problem, the fake news and the big tech. Big tech is now coming into their own. We beat them four years ago. We surprised them. We took them by surprise and this year, they rigged an election.
They rigged it like theyve never rigged an election before. By the way, last night, they didnt do a bad job either, if you notice. Im honest. I just, again, I want to thank you. Its just a great honour to have this kind of crowd and to be before you. Hundreds of thousands of American patriots are committed to the honesty of our elections and the integrity of our glorious republic. All of us here today do not want to see our election victory stolen by emboldened radical left Democrats, which is what theyre doing and stolen by the fake news media. Thats what theyve done and what theyre doing. We will never give up. We will never concede, it doesnt happen. You dont concede when theres theft involved.

Our country has had enough. We will not take it any more and thats what this is all about. To use a favourite term that all of you people really came up with, we will stop the steal. Today I will lay out just some of the evidence proving that we won this election, and we won it by a landslide. This was not a close election. I say sometimes jokingly, but theres no joke about it, Ive been in two elections.
I won them both and the second one, I won much bigger than the first. Almost 75 million people voted for our campaign, the most of any incumbent president by far in the history of our country, 12 million more people than four years ago. I was told by the real pollsters, we do have real pollsters. They know that we were going to do well, and we were going to win. What I was told, if I went from 63 million, which we had four years ago to 66 million, there was no chance of losing. Well, we didnt go to 66. We went to 75 million and they say we lost. We didnt lose.
By the way, does anybody believe that Joe had 80 million votes? Does anybody believe that? He had 80 million computer votes. Its a disgrace. Theres never been anything like that. You could take third world countries. Just take a look, take third world countries. Their elections are more honest than what weve been going through in this country. Its a disgrace. Its a disgrace. Even when you look at last night, theyre all running around like chickens with their heads cut off with boxes. Nobody knows what the hell is going on. Theres never been anything like this. We will not let them silence your voices. Were not going to let it happen. Not going to let it happen.
Crowd: Fight for Trump! Fight for Trump! Fight for Trump!
Thank you. Id love to have, if those tens of thousands of people would be allowed, the military, the secret service, and we want to thank you, and the police law enforcement. Great. Youre doing a great job, but Id love it if they could be allowed to come up here with us. Is that possible? Can you just let them come up, please? Rudy, you did a great job. Hes got guts. You know what? Hes got guts, unlike a lot of people in the Republican party. Hes got guts, he fights. He fights, and Ill tell you. Thank you very much, John. Fantastic job. I watched. Thats a tough act to follow, those two. John is one of the most brilliant lawyers in the country, and he looked at this and he said, What an absolute disgrace, that this could be happening to our constitution. He looked at Mike Pence, and I hope Mike is going to do the right thing.

I hope so. I hope so because if Mike Pence does the right thing, we win the election. All he has to do. This is from the number one or certainly one of the top constitutional lawyers in our country. He has the absolute right to do it. Were supposed to protect our country, support our country, support our constitution and protect our constitution. States want to revote. The states got defrauded. They were given false information. They voted on it. Now they want to recertify. They want it back. All Vice President Pence has to do is send it back to the states to recertify, and we become president, and you are the happiest people.
I just spoke to Mike. I said, Mike, that doesnt take courage. What takes courage is to do nothing. That takes courage, and then were stuck with a president who lost the election by a lot, and we have to live with that for four more years. Were just not going to let that happen. Many of you have travelled from all across the nation to be here, and I want to thank you for the extraordinary love. Thats what it is. Theres never been a movement like this ever, ever for the extraordinary love for this amazing country and this amazing movement. Thank you.
Crowd: We love Trump! We love Trump! We love Trump!
By the way, this goes all the way back past the Washington monument. Do you believe this? Look at this. Unfortunately, they gave the press the prime seats. I cant stand that. No, but you look at that behind. I wish theyd flip those cameras and look behind you. That is the most amazing sight. When they make a mistake, you get to see it on television. Amazing, amazing, all the way back. Dont worry. We will not take the name off the Washington monument. We will not. Cancel culture. They wanted to get rid of the Jefferson Memorial, either take it down or just put somebody else in there. I dont think thats going to happen. It damn well better not. Although with this administration, if this happens, it could happen. Youll see some really bad things happen.
Theyll knock out Lincoln too, by the way. Theyve been taking his statue down, but then we signed a little law. You hurt our monuments, you hurt our heroes, you go to jail for 10 years and everything stopped. Did you notice that? It stopped. It all stopped. They could use Rudy back in New York City. Rudy, they could use you. Your city is going to hell. They want Rudy Giuliani back in New York. Well get a little younger version of Rudy. Is that okay, Rudy?

Were gathered together in the heart of our nations Capitol for one very, very basic and simple reason, to save our democracy. Most candidates on election evening, and of course this thing goes on so long, they still dont have any idea what the votes are. We still have congressional seats under review. They have no idea. Theyve totally lost control. Theyve used the pandemic as a way of defrauding the people in a proper election.
But when you see this and when you see whats happening, number one, they all say, Sir, well never let it happen again. I said, Thats good, but what about eight weeks ago? They try and get you to go. They say, Sir, in four years, youre guaranteed. I said, Im not interested right now. Do me a favour, go back eight weeks. I want to go back eight weeks. Lets go back eight weeks. We want to go back, and we want to get this right because were going to have somebody in there that should not be in there and our country will be destroyed, and were not going to stand for that.
For years, Democrats have gotten away with election fraud and weak Republicans, and thats what they are. Theres so many weak Republicans. We have great ones, Jim Jordan, and some of these guys. Theyre out there fighting the House. Guys are fighting, but its incredible. Many of the Republicans, I helped them get in. I helped them get elected. I helped Mitch get elected. I could name 24 of them, lets say. I wont bore you with it, and then all of a sudden you have something like this. Its like, Gee, maybe Ill talk to the president sometime later. No, its amazing.
The weak Republicans, theyre pathetic Republicans and thats what happens. If this happened to the Democrats, thered be hell all over the country going on. Thered be hell all over the country. But just remember this. Youre stronger, youre smarter. Youve got more going than anybody, and they try and demean everybody having to do with us, and youre the real people. Youre the people that built this nation. Youre not the people that tore down our nation.
The weak Republicans, and thats it. I really believe it. I think Im going to use the term, the weak Republicans. You got a lot of them, and you got a lot of great ones, but you got a lot of weak ones. Theyve turned a blind eye even as Democrats enacted policies that chipped away our jobs, weakened our military, threw open our borders and put America last. Did you see the other day where Joe Biden said, I want to get rid of the America-first policy. Whats that all about, get rid of ? How do you say, I want to get rid of America first? Even if youre going to do it, dont talk about it. Unbelievable, what we have to go through, what we have to go through and you have to get your people to fight. If they dont fight, we have to primary the hell out of the ones that dont fight. You primary them. Were going to let you know who they are. I can already tell you, frankly.
But this year using the pretext of the China virus and the scam of mail-in ballots, Democrats attempted the most brazen and outrageous election theft. Theres never been anything like this. Its a pure theft in American history, everybody knows it. That election, our election was over at 10:00 in the evening. Were leading Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia by hundreds of thousands of votes, and then late in the evening or early in the morning, boom, these explosions of and bullshit, and all of a sudden. All of a sudden it started to happen.

Dont forget when Romney got beat. Romney. I wonder if he enjoyed his flight in last night? But when Romney got beaten, he stands up like youre more typical. Well, Id like to congratulate the victor, the victor. Who was the victor, Mitt? Id like to congratulate. They dont go and look at the facts. Now I dont know. He got slaughtered probably, maybe it was okay. Maybe it was thats what happened. But we look at the facts and our lecture was so corrupt that in the history of this country, weve never seen anything like it. You can go all the way back. America is blessed with elections all over the world. They talk about our elections. You know what the world says about us now? They said we dont have free and fair elections and you know what else? We dont have a free and fair press.
Our media is not free. Its not fair. It suppresses thought. It suppresses speech, and its become the enemy of the people. Its become the enemy of the people. Its the biggest problem we have in this country. No third world countries would even attempt to do what we caught them doing and youll hear about that in just a few minutes. Republicans are constantly fighting like a boxer with his hands tied behind his back. Its like a boxer, and we want to be so nice. We want to be so respectful of everybody, including bad people. Were going to have to fight much harder and Mike Pence is going to have to come through for us. If he doesnt, that will be a sad day for our country because youre sworn to uphold our constitution.
Now it is up to Congress to confront this egregious assault on our democracy. After this, were going to walk down and Ill be there with you. Were going to walk down. Were going to walk down any one you want, but I think right here. Were going walk down to the Capitol, and were going to cheer on our brave senators, and congressmen and women. Were probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them because youll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength, and you have to be strong.
We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Today we will see whether Republicans stand strong for integrity of our elections, but whether or not they stand strong for our country, our country. Our country has been under siege for a long time, far longer than this four-year period. Weve set it on a much straighter course, a much I thought four more years. I thought it would be easy. We created
Four more years, I thought it would be easy. We created the greatest economy in history. We rebuilt our military. We get you the biggest tax cuts in history. We got you the biggest regulation cuts. Theres no President, whether its four years, eight years, or in one case more, got anywhere near the regulation cuts. It used to take 20 years to get a highway approved. now were down to two. I want to get it down to one, but were down to two. And it may get rejected for environmental or safety reasons, but we got it down the safety. We created Space Force. Look at what we did. Our military has been totally rebuilt. So we create Space Force, which by in of itself is a major achievement for an administration. And with us, its one of so many different things.

Right to try. Everybody know about right to try. We did things that nobody ever thought possible. We took care of our vets. Our vets, the VA now has the highest rating, 91 percent, the highest rating that its had from the beginning, 91 percent approval rating. Always you watch the VA, when it was on television. Every night people living in a horrible, horrible manner. We got that done. We got accountability done. We got it so that now in the VA, you dont have to wait for four weeks, six weeks, eight weeks, four months to see a doctor. If you cant get a doctor, you go outside, you get the doctor, you have them taken care of. And we pay the doctor. And weve not only made life wonderful for so many people, weve saved tremendous amounts of money, far secondarily, but weve saved a lot of money.
And now we have the right to fire bad people in the VA. We had 9,000 people that treated our veterans horribly. In prime time, they would not have treated our veterans badly. But they treated our veterans horribly. And we have whats called the VA Accountability Act. And the accountability says if we see somebody in there that doesnt treat our vets well, or they steal, they rob, they do things badly. We say, Joe, youre fired. Get out of here. Before you couldnt do that. You couldnt do that before.
So weve taken care of things. Weve done things like nobodys ever thought possible. And thats part of the reason that many people dont like us, because weve done too much, but weve done it quickly. And we were going to sit home and watch a big victory. And everybody had us down for a victory. It was going to be great. And now were out here fighting. I said to somebody, I was going to take a few days and relax after our big electoral victory. Ten oclock, it was over. But I was going to take a few days.
And I can say this, since our election, I believe, which was a catastrophe when I watch and even these guys knew what happened, they know what happened. Theyre saying, Wow, Pennsylvanias insurmountable. Wow, Wisconsin, look at the big leads we had. Even though the press said we were going to lose Wisconsin by 17 points. Even though the press said Ohio is going to be close, we set a record. Floridas going to be close, we set a record. Texas is going to be close. Texas is going to be close, we set a record. And we set a record with Hispanic, with the Black community. We set a record with everybody.
Today, we see a very important event though, because right over there, right there, we see the event going to take place. And Im going to be watching, because history is going to be made. Were going to see whether or not we have great and courageous leaders or whether or not we have leaders that should be ashamed of themselves throughout history, throughout eternity, theyll be ashamed. And you know what? If they do the wrong thing, we should never ever forget that they did. Never forget. We should never ever forget. With only three of the seven states in question, we win the presidency of the United States.

And by the way, its much more important today than it was 24 hours ago. Because I spoke to David Perdue, what a great person, and Kelly Loeffler, two great people, but it was a setup. And I said, We have no back line any more. The only back line, the only line of demarcation, the only line that we have is the veto of the president of the United States. So this is now what were doing, a far more important election than it was two days ago.
I want to thank the more than 140 members of the House. Those are warriors. Theyre over there working like youve never seen before, studying, talking, actually going all the way back, studying the roots of the constitution, because they know we have the right to send a bad vote that was illegally got, they gave these people bad things to vote for and they voted, because what did they know? And then when they found out a few weeks later Again, it took them four years to devise history. And the only unhappy person in the United States, single most unhappy, is Hillary Clinton because she said, Why didnt you do this for me four years ago? Why didnt you do this for me four years ago? Change the votes! 10,000 in Michigan. You could have changed the whole thing! But shes not too happy. You notice you dont see her any more. What happened? Where is Hillary? Where is she?
Supporters of President Donald Trump demonstrate on the second floor of the US Capitol near the entrance to the Senate [Mike Theiler/Reuters]
But I want to thank all of those congressmen and women. I also want to thank our 13 most courageous members of the US Senate, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Ron Johnson, Senator Shadowless, Kelly Loeffler. And Kelly Loeffler, Ill tell you, shes been so great. She works so hard. So lets give her and David a little special head, because it was rigged against them. Lets give her and David. Kelly Loeffler, David Perdue. They fought a good race. They never had a shot.
That equipment should never have been allowed to be used, and I was telling these people dont let them use this stuff. Marsha Blackburn, terrific person. Mike Braun, Indiana. Disinvested, great guy. Bill Hagerty, John Kennedy, James Lankford, Cynthia Lummis. Tommy Tuberville, to the coach. And Roger Marshall. We want to thank them, senators that stepped up, we want to thank them.
I actually think though it takes, again, more courage not to step up. And I think a lot of those people are going to find that out, and you better start looking at your leadership because the leadership has led you down the tubes. We dont want to give $2,000 to people. We want to give them $600. Oh, great. How does that play politically? Pretty good? And this has nothing to do with politics. But how does it play politically? China destroyed these people. We didnt destroy. China destroyed them, totally destroyed them. We want to give them $600, and they just wouldnt change. I said, Give them $2000. Well pay it back. Well pay it back fast. You already owe 26 trillion. Give them a couple of bucks. Let them live. Give them a couple of bucks!
And some of the people here disagree with me on that. But I just say, look, you got to let people live. And how does that play though? Okay, number one, its the right thing to do. But how does that play politically? I think its the primary reason, one of the primary reasons, the other was just pure cheating. That was the super primary reason. But you cant do that. You got to use your head.
As you know the media is constantly asserted the outrageous lie that there was no evidence of widespread fraud. You ever see these people? While there is no evidence of fraud Oh, really? Well, Im going to read you pages. I hope you dont get bored listening to it. Promise? Dont get bored listening to it, all those hundreds of thousands of people back there. Move them up, please. Yeah. All these people dont get bored. Dont get angry at me because youre going to get bored because its so much. The American people do not believe the corrupt fake news anymore. They have ruined their reputation.
But it used to be that theyd argue with me, Id fight. So Id fight, theyd fight. Id fight, theyd fight. Boop-boop. Youd believe me, youd believe them. Somebody comes out. They had their point of view, I had my point of view. But youd have an argument. Now what they do is they go silent. Its called suppression. And thats what happens in a communist country. Thats what they do. They suppress. You dont fight with them any more, unless its a bad. They have a little bad story about me, theyll make it 10 times worse and its a major headline. But Hunter Biden, they dont talk about him. What happened to Hunter? Wheres Hunter? Where is Hunter? They dont talk about him.
Now watch all the sets will go off. Well, they cant do that because they get good ratings. The ratings are too good. Now where is Hunter? And how come Joe was allowed to give a billion dollars of money to get rid of the prosecutor in Ukraine? How does that happen? Id ask you that question. How does that happen? Can you imagine if I said that? If I said that, it would be a whole different ball game. And how come Hunter gets three and a half million dollars from the Mayor of Moscows wife, and gets hundreds of thousands of dollars to sit on an energy board even though he admits he has no knowledge of energy, and millions of dollars up front, and how come they go into China and they leave with billions of dollars to manage? Have you managed money before? No, I havent. Oh, thats good. Heres about three billion.

No, they dont talk about that. No, we have a corrupt media. Theyve gone silent. Theyve gone dead. I now realise how good it was if you go back 10 years. I realised how good, even though I didnt necessarily love him, I realised how good it was like a cleansing motion. But we dont have that any more. We dont have a fair media any more. Its suppression and you have to be very careful with that. And theyve lost all credibility in this country. We will not be intimidated into accepting the hoaxes and the lies that weve been forced to believe over the past several weeks. Weve amassed overwhelming evidence about a fake election. This is the presidential election. Last night was a little bit better because of the fact that we had a lot of eyes watching one specific state, but they cheated like hell, anyway.
You have one of the dumbest governors in the United States. And when I endorsed him, I didnt know this guy. At the request of David Perdue. He said, A friend of mine is running for Governor, whats his name. And you know the rest. He was in fourth place, fifth place. I dont know. He was way He was doing poorly. I endorsed him. He went like a rocket ship and he won. And then I had to beat Stacey Abrams with this guy, Brian Kemp. I had to beat Stacey Abrams and I had to beat Oprah, used to be a friend of mine. I was on her last show. Her last week she picked the five outstanding people. I dont think she thinks that any more. Once I ran for president, I didnt notice there were too many calls coming in from Oprah. Believe it or not, she used to like me, but I was one of the five outstanding people.
And I had a campaign against Michelle Obama and Barack Hussein Obama against Stacey. And I had Brian Kemp, he weighs 130 pounds. He said he played offensive line in football. Im trying to figure that. Im still trying to figure that out. He said that the other night, I was an offensive lineman. Im saying, Really? That mustve been a really small team. But I look at that and I look at whats happened, and he turned out to be a disaster. This stuff happens.
Look, Im not happy with the Supreme Court. They love to rule against me. I picked three people. I fought like hell for them, one in particular I fought. They all said, Sir, cut him loose. Hes killing us. The senators, very loyal senators. Theyre very loyal people. Sir, cut him loose. Hes killing us, sir. Cut him loose, sir. I mustve gotten half of the senators. I said, No, I cant do that. Its unfair to him. And its unfair to the family. He didnt do anything wrong. Theyre made up stories. They were all made up stories. He didnt do anything wrong. Cut him loose, sir. I said, No, I wont do that. We got him through. And you know what? They couldnt give a damn. They couldnt give a damn. Let them rule the right way, but it almost seems that theyre all going out of their way to hurt all of us, and to hurt our country. To hurt our country.

I read a story in one of the newspapers recently how I control the three Supreme Court justices. I control them. Theyre puppets. I read it about Bill Barr, that hes my personal attorney. That hell do anything for me. And I said, It really is genius, because what they do is that, and it makes it really impossible for them to ever give you a victory, because all of a sudden Bill Barr changed, if you hadnt noticed. I like Bill Barr, but he changed, because he didnt want to be considered my personal attorney. And the Supreme Court, they rule against me so much. You know why? Because the story is I havent spoken to any of them, any of them, since virtually they got in. But the story is that theyre my puppet. That theyre puppets. And now that the only way they can get out of that, because they hate that, its not good on the social circuit. And the only way they get out is to rule against Trump. So lets rule against Trump, and they do that. So I want to congratulate them.
But it shows you the medias genius. In fact, probably, if I was the media, Id do it the same way. I hate to say it. But we got to get them straightened out. Today, for the sake of our democracy, for the sake of our constitution, and for the sake of our children, we lay out the case for the entire world to hear. You want to hear it?
Crowd: Yes!
In every single swing state, local officials, state officials, almost all Democrats made illegal and unconstitutional changes to election procedures without the mandated approvals by the state legislatures, that these changes paved the way for fraud on a scale never seen before. And I think wed go a long way outside of our country when I say that.
So just in a nutshell, you cant make a change on voting for a federal election unless the state legislature approves it. No judge can do it. Nobody can do it, only a legislature. So as an example in Pennsylvania or whatever, you have a Republican legislature, you have a Democrat mayor, and you have a lot of Democrats all over the place. They go to the legislature, the legislature laughs at them. Says, Were not going to do that. They say, Thank you very much. And they go and make the changes themselves. They do it anyway. And thats totally illegal. Thats totally illegal. You cant do that.
In Pennsylvania, the Democrat Secretary of State and the Democrat State Supreme Court justices illegally abolished the signature verification requirements just 11 days prior to the election. So think of what they did. No longer is there signature verification. Oh, thats okay. We want voter ID by the way. But no longer is there signature verification, 11 days before the election! They say, We dont want it. You know why they dont want it? Because they want to cheat. Thats the only reason. Who would even think of that? We dont want to verify a signature? There were over 205,000 more ballots counted in Pennsylvania. Now think of this. You had 205,000 more ballots than you had voters. That means you had 200 Where did they come from? You know where they came from? Somebodys imagination. Whatever they needed. So in Pennsylvania you had 205,000 more votes than you had voters! And its the number is actually much greater than that now. That was as of a week ago. And this is a mathematical impossibility, unless you want to say its a total fraud. So Pennsylvania was defrauded.
Over 8,000 ballots in Pennsylvania were cast by people whose names and dates of birth match individuals who died in 2020 and prior to the election. Think of that. Dead people! Lots of dead people, thousands. And some dead people actually requested an application. That bothers me even more. Not only are they voting, they want an application to vote. One of them was 29 years ago died. Its incredible.
Over 14,000 ballots were cast by out-of-state voters. So these are voters that dont live in the state. And by the way, these numbers are what they call outcome determinative. Meaning these numbers far surpass I lost by a very little bit. These numbers are massive. Massive. More than 10,000 votes in Pennsylvania were illegally counted, even though they were received after Election Day. In other words, They were received after Election Day, lets count them anyway! And what they did in many cases is they did fraud. They took the date and they moved it back, so that it no longer is after Election Day. And more than 60,000 ballots in Pennsylvania were reported received back. They got back before they were ever supposedly mailed out. In other words, you got the ballot back before you mailed it!
they were supposedly mailed out, in other words, you got the ballot back before you mailed it, which is also logically and logistically impossible. Think of that one. You got the ballot back. Lets send the ballots. Oh, theyve already been sent. But we got the ballot back before they were sent. I dont think thats too good.
Twenty-five thousand ballots in Pennsylvania were requested by nursing home residents, all in a single giant batch, not legal. Indicating an enormous illegal ballot-harvesting operation. Youre not allowed to do it. Its against the law. The day before the election, the State of Pennsylvania reported the number of absentee ballots that had been sent out. Yet this number was suddenly and drastically increased by 400,000 people. It was increased. Nobody knows where it came from by 400,000 ballots. One day after the election, it remains totally unexplained. They said, Well, we cant figure that. Now thats many, many times what it would take to overthrow the state. Just that one element. 400,000 ballots appeared from nowhere, right after the election.
By the way, Pennsylvania has now seen all of this. They didnt know because it was so quick. They had a vote, they voted, but now they see all this stuff. Its all come to light. Doesnt happen that fast. And they want to re certify their votes. They want to recertify. But the only way that can happen is if Mike Pence agrees to send it back.
A pedestrian carries a sign opposing supporters of US President Donald Trump who stormed the US Capitol in Washington [Joshua Roberts/Reuters]
Mike Pence has to agree to send it back. And many people in Congress want it sent back, and take of what youre doing. Lets say you dont do it. Somebody says, Well, we have to obey the constitution. And you are, because youre protecting our country and youre protecting the constitution, so you are. But think of what happens. Lets say theyre stiffs and theyre stupid people. And they say, Well, we really have no choice. Even though Pennsylvania and other states want to redo their votes, they want to see the numbers. They already have the numbers. Go very quickly and they want to redo their legislature because many of these votes were taken as I said, because it wasnt approved by their legislature. That in itself is illegal and then you have the scam and thats all of the things that were talking about. But think of this: if you dont do that, that means you will have a president of the United States for four years, with his wonderful son.
You will have a president who lost all of these states, or you will have a president to put it another way, who was voted on by a bunch of stupid people who lost all of these things. You will have an illegitimate president, thats what youll have. And we cant let that happen. These are the facts that you wont hear from the fake news media. Its all part of the suppression effort. They dont want to talk about it. They dont want to talk about it. In fact, when I started talking about that, I guarantee you a lot of the television sets and a lot of those cameras went off and thats how a lot of cameras back there. But a lot of them went off, but these are the things you dont hear about. You dont hear what you just heard. And Im going to go over a few more states. But you dont hear it by the people who want to deceive you and demoralise you and control you, big tech, media.
Just like the suppression polls that said, were going to lose Wisconsin by 17 points, well we won Wisconsin. They dont have it that way because they lose just by a little sliver. But they had me down the day before Washington Post, ABC poll, down 17 points. I called up a real pollster. I said, What is that? Sir, thats called a suppression poll. I think youre going to win Wisconsin, Sir. I said, But why do they make it four or five points? Because then people vote. But when youre down 17, they say, Hey, Im not going to waste my time. I love the president, but theres no way. Despite that, we won Wisconsin, youll see. But thats called suppression because a lot of people, when they see that, its very interesting. This pollster said, Sir, if youre down three, four or five people vote. When you go down 17, they say, Lets save, lets go and have dinner, and lets watch the presidential defeat tonight on television darling.

And just like the radical left tries to blacklist you on social media, every time I put out a tweet, even if its totally correct, totally correct. I get a flag. I get a flag. And they also dont let you get out. On Twitter, its very hard to come on to my account. Its very hard to get out a message. They dont let the message get out nearly like they should, but Ive had many people say, I cant get on your Twitter. I dont care about Twitter. Twitter is bad news. Theyre all bad news. But you know what? If you want to get out of message. And if you want to go through big tech, social media, they are really, if youre a conservative, if youre a Republican, if you have a big voice, I guess they call it shadow ban. Shadow ban. They shadow ban you and it should be illegal. Ive been telling these Republicans get rid of Section 230.
And for some reason, Mitch and the group, they dont want to put it in there. And they dont realise that thats going to be the end of the Republican party as we know it, but its never going to be the end of us, never. Let them get out. Let the weak ones get out. This is a time for strength. They also want to indoctrinate your children in school by teaching them things that arent so. They want to indoctrinate your children. Its all part of the comprehensive assault on our democracy and the American people to finally standing up and saying, No. This crowd is again a testament to it. I did no advertising. I did nothing. You do have some groups that are big supporters. I want to thank that Amy and everybody, we have some incredible supporters, incredible, but we didnt do anything. This just happened.

Two months ago, we had a massive crowd come down to Washington. I said, What are they there for. Sir, theyre there for you. We have nothing to do with it. These groups, theyre forming all over the United States. And we got to remember, in a year from now, youre going to start working on Congress. And we got to get rid of the weak congresspeople, the ones that arent any good, the Liz Cheneys of the world, we got to get rid of them. We got to get rid of them. She never wants a soldier brought home. Ive brought a lot of our soldiers home. I dont know, some like it. Theyre in countries that nobody even knows the name. Nobody knows where they are. Theyre dying. Theyre great, but theyre dying. Theyre losing their arms, their legs, their face. I brought them back home, largely back home, Afghanistan, Iraq.
Remember I used to say in the old days, Dont go into Iraq. But if you go in, keep the oil. We didnt keep the oil. So stupid. So stupid, these people. And Iraq has billions and billions of dollars now in the bank. And what did we do? We get nothing. We never get. But we do actually, we kept the oil here. We did good. We got rid of the ISIS caliphate. We got rid of plenty of different things that everybody knows and the rebuilding of our military in three years, people said it couldnt be done. And it was all made in the USA, all made in the USA. Best equipment in the world. In Wisconsin, corrupt Democrat-run cities deployed more than 500 illegal unmanned, unsecured drop boxes, which collected a minimum of 91,000 unlawful votes. It was razor thin, the loss. This one thing alone is much more than we would need, but there are many things.
They have these lockboxes and they pick them up and they disappear for two days. People would say, Wheres that box? They disappeared. Nobody even knew where the hell it was. In addition, over 170,000 absentee votes were counted in Wisconsin without a valid absentee ballot application. So they had a vote, but they had no application. And thats illegal in Wisconsin. Meaning those votes were blatantly done in opposition to state law. And they came 100 percent from Democrat areas, such as Milwaukee and Madison, 100 percent.
In Madison, 17,000 votes were deposited in so-called human drop boxes. You know what that is, right? Where operatives stuff thousands of unsecured ballots into duffel bags on park benches across the city in complete defiance of cease and desist letters from state legislature. The state legislature said, Dont do it. Theyre the only ones that could approve it. They gave tens of thousands of votes.
They came in in duffel bags. Where the hell did they come from? According to eyewitness testimony, postal service workers in Wisconsin were also instructed to illegally backdate approximately 100,000 ballots. The margin of difference in Wisconsin was less than 20,000 votes. Each one of these things alone wins us the state. Great state, we love the state, we won the state. In Georgia, your secretary of state, I cant believe this guys a Republican. He loves recording telephone conversations. I thought it was a great conversation personally, so did a lot of other people love that conversation, because it says whats going on.
These people are crooked. Theyre 100 percent in my opinion, one of the most corrupt. Between your governor and your secretary of state. And now you have it again last night, just take a look at what happened, what a mess and the Democrat party operatives entered into an illegal and unconstitutional settlement agreement that drastically weakened signature verification and other election security procedures.

Stacey Abrams, she took them to lunch and I beat her two years ago with a bad candidate, Brian Kemp. But the Democrats, took the Republicans to lunch because the secretary of state had no clue what the hell was happening, unless he did have a clue. Thats interesting. Maybe he was with the other side, but weve been trying to get verifications of signatures in Fulton County. They wont let us do it. The only reason they wont is because well find things in the hundreds of thousands. Why wouldnt they let us verify signatures and Fulton County? Which is known for being very corrupt. They wont do it. They go to some other county where you would live. I said, Thats not the problem. The problem is Fulton County. Home of Stacey Abrams. She did a good job. I congratulate her, but it was done in such a way that we cant let this stuff happen.
We wont have a country of it happens. As a result Georgias absentee ballot rejection rate was more than 10 times lower than previous levels, because the criteria was so off, 48 counties in Georgia with thousands and thousands of votes rejected zero ballots. There wasnt one ballot. In other words, in a year in which more mail-in ballots were sent than ever before, and more people were voting by mail for the first time, the rejection rate was drastically lower than it had ever been before. The only way this can be explained is if tens of thousands of illegitimate votes were added to the tally, thats the only way you could explain it. By the way, youre talking about tens of thousands. If Georgia had merely rejected the same number of unlawful ballots, as in other years, there should have been approximately 45,000 ballots rejected, far more than what we needed to win, just over 11,000.
They should find those votes. They should absolutely find that just over 11,000 votes, thats all we need. They defrauded us out of a win in Georgia, and were not going to forget it. Theres only one reason the Democrats could possibly want to eliminate signature matching, oppose voter ID and stop citizenship confirmation. Are you in citizenship? Youre not allowed to ask that question. Because they want to steal the election.
The radical left knows exactly what theyre doing. Theyre ruthless and its time that somebody did something about it. And Mike Pence, I hope youre going to stand up for the good of our constitution and for the good of our country. And if youre not, Im going to be very disappointed in you. I will tell you right now. Im not hearing good stories. In Fulton County, republican poll Watchers were rejected in some cases, physically from the room under the false pretence of a pipe burst.
Water main burst, everybody leave. Which we now know was a total lie. Then election officials pull boxes, Democrats and suitcases of ballots out from under a table. You all saw it on television, totally fraudulent. And illegally scanned them for nearly two hours totally unsupervised. Tens of thousands of votes, as that coincided with a mysterious vote dump of up to 100,000 votes for Joe Biden, almost none for Trump. Oh, that sounds fair. That was at 1:34am. The Georgia secretary of state and pathetic governor of Georgia although he says, Im a great president. I sort of maybe have to change. He said the other day, Yes, I disagree with president, but hes been a great president. Oh, good. Thanks. Thank you very much. Because of him and others. Brian Kemp, vote him the hell out of office, please.

Well, his rates are so low, his approval rating now, I think it just reached a record low. Theyve rejected five separate appeals for an independent and comprehensive audit of signatures in Fulton County. Even without an audit, the number of fraudulent ballots that weve identified across the state is staggering. Over 10,300 ballots in Georgia were cast by individuals whose names and dates of birth match Georgia residents who died in 2020 and prior to the election. More than 2,500 ballots were cast by individuals whose names and dates of birth match incarcerated felons in Georgia prison. People who are not allowed to vote. More than 4,500 illegal ballots were cast by individuals who do not appear on the states own voter rolls. Over 18,000 illegal ballots were cast by individuals who registered to vote using an address listed as vacant, according to the postal service. At least 88,000 ballots in Georgia were cast by people whose registrations were illegally backdated.
Each one of these is far more than we need. 66,000 votes in Georgia were cast by individuals under the legal voting age. And at least 15,000 ballots were cast by individuals who moved out of the state prior to November 3rd election. They say they moved right back. They move right back. Oh, they moved out. They moved right back. Okay. They miss Georgia that much. I do. I love Georgia, but its a corrupt system. Despite all of this, the margin in Georgia is only 11,779 votes. Each and every one of these issues is enough to give us a victory in Georgia, a big, beautiful victory. Make no mistake, this selection stolen from you, from me and from the country. And not a single swing state has conducted a comprehensive audit to remove the illegal ballots. This should absolutely occur in every single contestant state before the election is certified.
In the State of Arizona, over 36,000 ballots were illegally cast by non-citizens. 2,000 ballots were returned with no address. More than 22,000 ballots were returned before they were ever supposedly mailed out. They returned, but we havent mailed them yet. 11,600 more ballots and votes were counted more than there were actual voters. You see that? So you have more votes again than you have voters.
150,000 people registered in Maya Copa County after the registration deadline. 103,000 ballots in the county were sent for electronic adjudication with no Republican observers. In Clark County, Nevada, the accuracy settings on signature verification machines were purposely lowered before they were used to count over 130,000 ballots. If you signed your name as Santa Claus, it would go through. There were also more than 42,000 double votes in Nevada. Over 150,000 people were hurt so badly by what took place. And 1,500 ballots were cast by individuals whose names and dates of birth match Nevada residents who died in 2020, prior to November 3rd election. More than 8,000 votes were cast by individuals who had no address and probably didnt live there. The margin in Nevada is down at a very low number. Any of these things would have taken care of the situation. We would have won.

Any of these things would have taken care of the situation. We would have won Nevada, also. Every one of these were going over, we win. In Michigan quickly, the secretary of state, a real great one, flooded the state with unsolicited mail-in ballot applications, sent to every person on the rolls, in direct violation of state law. More than 17,000 Michigan ballots were cast by individuals whose names and dates of birth matched people who were deceased. In Wayne County, thats a great one. Thats Detroit. 174,000 ballots were counted without being tied to an actual registered voter. Nobody knows where they came from. Also in Wayne County, poll watches observed canvassers rescanning batches of ballots over and over again, up to three or four or five times. In Detroit, turnout was 139 percent of registered voters. Think of that. So you had 139 percent of the people in Detroit voting. This is in Michigan, Detroit, Michigan.
A career employee of the Detroit, City of Detroit, testified under penalty of perjury that she witnessed city workers coaching voters to vote straight Democrat, while accompanying them to watch who they voted for. When a Republican came in, they wouldnt talk to him. The same worker was instructed not to ask for any voter ID and not to attempt to validate any signatures if they were Democrats. She also told to illegally, and was told backdate ballots received after the deadline and reports that thousands and thousands of ballots were improperly backdated. Thats Michigan. Four witnesses have testified under penalty of perjury that after officials in Detroit announced the last votes had been counted, tens of thousands of additional ballots arrived without required envelopes. Every single one was for a Democrat. I got no votes.
At 6:31am, in the early morning hours after voting had ended, Michigan suddenly reported 147,000 votes. An astounding 94 percent went to Joe Biden, who campaigned brilliantly from his basement. Only a couple of percentage points went to Trump. Such gigantic and one-sided vote dumps were only observed in a few swing states and they were observed in the states where it was necessary. You know whats interesting, President Obama beat Biden in every state other than the swing states where Biden killed him. But the swing states were the ones that mattered. There were always just enough to push Joe Biden barely into the lead. We were ahead by a lot and within the number of hours we were losing by a little.
In addition, there is the highly troubling matter of Dominion voting systems. In one Michigan County alone, 6,000 votes were switched from Trump to Biden and the same systems are used in the majority of states in our country. Senator William Ligon, a great gentleman, chairman of Georgia Senate Judiciary Subcommittee, Senator Ligon, highly respected on elections has written a letter describing his concerns with Dominion in Georgia.

He wrote, and I quote, The Dominion voting machines employed in Fulton County had an astronomical and astounding 93.67% error rate. Its only wrong 93 percent of the time. In the scanning of ballots requiring a review panel to adjudicate or determine the voters interest, in over 106,000 ballots out of a total of 113,000. Think of it, you go in and you vote and then they tell people who youre supposed to be voting for. They make up whatever they want. Nobodys ever even heard. They adjudicate your vote. They say, Well, we dont think Trump wants to vote for Trump. We think he wants to vote for Biden. Put it down for Biden. The national average for such an error rate is far less than 1 percent and yet youre at 93 percent. The source of this astronomical error rate must be identified to determine if these machines were set up or destroyed to allow for a third party to disregard the actual ballot cast by the registered voter.
The letter continues, There is clear evidence that tens of thousands of votes were switched from President Trump to former Vice President Biden in several counties in Georgia. For example, in Bibb County, President Trump was reported to have 29, 391 votes at 9:11 PM Eastern time. While simultaneously Vice President Joe Biden was reported to have 17,213. Minutes later, just minutes, at the next update, these vote numbers switched with President Trump going way down to 17,000 and Biden going way up to 29,391. And that was very quick, a 12,000 vote switch, all in Mr. Bidens favour.
So, I mean, I could go on and on about this fraud that took place in every state and all of these legislatures want this back. I dont want to do it to you because I love you and its freezing out here, but I could just go on forever. I can tell you this
Crowd: We love you. We love you. We love you. We love you. We love you. We love you. We love you. We love you.
So when you hear, when you hear, While there is no evidence to prove any wrongdoing, this is the most fraudulent thing anybodys This is a criminal enterprise. This is a criminal enterprise and the press will say, and Im sure they wont put any of that on there because thats no good, do you ever see, While there is no evidence to back President Trumps assertion, I could go on for another hour reading this stuff to you and telling you about it. Theres never been anything like it. Think about it, Detroit had more votes than it had voters. Pennsylvania had 205,000 more votes than it had more, but you dont have to go any Between that, I think thats almost better than dead people, if you think, right? More votes than they had voters, and many other States are also.

Its a disgrace that the United States of America, tens of millions of people are allowed to go vote without so much as even showing identification. In no state is there any question or effort made to verify the identity, citizenship, residency or eligibility of the votes cast. The Republicans have to get tougher. Youre not going to have a Republican party if you dont get tougher. They want to play so straight, they want to play so, Sir, yes, the United States, the constitution doesnt allow me to send them back to the States. Well, I say, Yes, it does because the constitution says you have to protect our country and you have to protect our constitution and you cant vote on fraud, and fraud breaks up everything, doesnt it? When you catch somebody in a fraud, youre allowed to go by very different rules. So I hope Mike has the courage to do what he has to do. And I hope he doesnt listen to the RINOs and the stupid people that hes listening to. It is also widely understood that the voter rolls are crammed full of non-citizens, felons and people who have moved out of state and individuals who are otherwise ineligible to vote. Yet Democrats oppose every effort to clean up their voter rolls. They dont want to clean them up, they are loaded. And how many people here know other people that when the hundreds of thousands and then millions of ballots got sent out, got three, four, five, six, and I heard one who got seven ballots. And then they say, You didnt quite make it, sir. We won. We won in a landslide. This was a landslide.
They said, Its not American to challenge the election. This is the most corrupt election in the history, maybe of the world. You know, you could go third world countries, but I dont think they had hundreds of thousands of votes and they dont have voters for them. I mean, no matter where you go, nobody would think this. In fact, its so egregious, its so bad, that a lot of people dont even believe it. Its so crazy that people dont even believe it. It cant be true. So they dont believe it. This is not just a matter of domestic politics, this is a matter of national security. So today, in addition to challenging the certification of the election, Im calling on Congress and the state legislatures to quickly pass sweeping election reforms, and you better do it before we have no country left. Today is not the end. Its just the beginning.
With your help over the last four years, we built the greatest political movement in the history of our country and nobody even challenges that. I say that over and over, and I never get challenged by the fake news, and they challenge almost everything we say. But our fight against the big donors, big media, big tech and others is just getting started. This is the greatest in history. Theres never been a movement like that. You look back there all the way to the Washington Monument. Its hard to believe. We must stop the steal and then we must ensure that such outrageous election fraud never happens again, can never be allowed to happen again, but were going forward. Well take care of going forward. We got to take care of going back. Dont let them talk, Okay, well we promise, Ive had a lot of people, Sir, youre at 96 percent for four years. I said, Im not interested right now. Im interested in right there.

With your help we will finally pass powerful requirements for voter ID. You need an ID to cash your cheque. You need an ID to go to a bank, to buy alcohol, to drive a car. Every person should need to show an ID in order to cast your most important thing, a vote. We will also require proof of American citizenship in order to vote in American elections. We just had a good victory in court on that one, actually. We will ban ballot harvesting and prohibit the use of unsecured drop boxes to commit rampant fraud. These drop boxes are fraudulent. Therefore, they get They disappear and then all of a sudden they show up. Its fraudulent. We will stop the practice of universal, unsolicited mail-in balloting. We will clean up the voter rolls that ensure that every single person who cast a vote is a citizen of our country, a resident of the state in which they vote and their vote is cast in a lawful and honest manner. We will restore the vital civic tradition of in-person voting on election day so that voters can be fully informed when they make their choice. We will finally hold big tech accountable and if these people had courage and guts, they would get rid of Section 230, something that no other company, no other person in America, in the world, has.
All of these tech monopolies are going to abuse their power and interfere in our elections and it has to be stopped and the Republicans have to get a lot tougher and so should the Democrats. They should be regulated, investigated and brought to justice under the fullest extent of the law. Theyre totally breaking the law. Together we will drain the Washington swamp and we will clean up the corruption in our nations capital. We have done a big job on it, but you think its easy, its a dirty business. Its a dirty business. You have a lot of bad people out there. Despite everything weve been through, looking out all over this country and seeing fantastic crowds, although this I think is our all-time record. I think you have 250, 000 people. 250,000.
Looking out at all the amazing patriots here today, I have never been more confident in our nations future. Well, I have to say we have to be a little bit careful. Thats a nice statement, but we have to be a little careful with that statement. If we allow this group of people to illegally take over our country, because its illegal when the votes are illegal, when the way they got there is illegal, when the states that vote are given false and fraudulent information. We are the greatest country on earth and we are headed, and were headed, in the right direction. You know, the wall is built, were doing record numbers at the wall. Now they want to take down the wall. Lets let everyone flow in. Lets let everybody flow in.

We did a great job in the wall. Remember the wall? They said it could never be done. One of the largest infrastructure projects weve ever had in this country and its had a tremendous impact and we got rid of catch and release, we got rid of all of the stuff that we had to live with. But now the caravans, they think Bidens getting in, the caravans are forming again. They want to come in again and rip off our country. Cant let it happen. As this enormous crowd shows, we have truth and justice on our side. We have a deep and enduring love for America in our hearts. We love our country. We have overwhelming pride in this great country, and we have it deep in our souls. Together we are determined to defend and preserve government of the people, by the people and for the people.
Our brightest days are before us, our greatest achievements still wait. I think one of our great achievements will be election security because nobody, until I came along, had any idea how corrupt our elections were. And again, most people would stand there at 9:00 in the evening and say, I want to thank you very much, and they go off to some other life, but I said, Somethings wrong here. Somethings really wrong. Cant have happened. And we fight. We fight like Hell and if you dont fight like Hell, youre not going to have a country any more.
Our exciting adventures and boldest endeavours have not yet begun. My fellow Americans for our movement, for our children and for our beloved country and I say this, despite all thats happened, the best is yet to come.
So were going to, were going to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, I love Pennsylvania Avenue, and were going to the Capitol and were going to try and give The Democrats are hopeless. Theyre never voting for anything, not even one vote. But were going to try and give our Republicans, the weak ones, because the strong ones dont need any of our help, were going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country.
So lets walk down Pennsylvania Avenue. I want to thank you all. God bless you and God bless America. Thank you all for being here, this is incredible. Thank you very much. Thank you.
