Newly revealed tape shows Trump on the hunt for a polling place in 2004
Republican nominee Donald Trump and Billy Bush have made the rounds in recent weeks. First, a 2005 tape was released of the two having a disturbing conversation, in which Trump is bragging about sexually assaulting women.
Now, a 2004 video of Trump being turned away from polling places is making its way around the Internet, and the timing is perfect given his recent “rigged election” narrative.
The NBC “Access Hollywood” tape features Trump and Bush riding around to different polling sites where the real estate mogul is turned away various times. The video starts off with Trump saying, “Welcome. Go ahead, Bill. Let’s vote.”
After he was turned away from the first polling location and on to the next one, Trump says, “OK, I like that location better. It’s a richer location.” He tells the people working at the second polling location to “Make sure there’s no cheating here.”
The Republican nominee has clearly come a long way in the last 12 years. Now he’s running for highest office of the United States, and as his campaign sinks just weeks before Election Day, he has continuously blamed the rigged media, rigged election, and voter fraud for his imminent loss.
During Wednesday night’s final Presidential debate, Trump refused to say whether he would accept the results of the election on Nov. 8. At a campaign event in Delaware, Ohio on Thursday he clarified, “I will totally accept [election results] … if I win.”
