President Donald Trump on Thursday asserted that conspiracy between the states had enabled “millions and millions” of immigrants to cast illegal votes.
During a so-called “roundtable discussion” on taxes in White Sulphur Springs, W.V. on Thursday, Trump veered off the topic at hand to discuss illegal immigration.
According to Trump, one immigrant brought 22 “people with him” through “chain migration.”
“So this guy, because he’s here, now can get the mother and that father and the grandmother and the cousins and the brothers and the sisters and the aunts and the uncles,” Trump opined. “This is what the Democrats are doing to you. And they like it because they think they’re going to vote Democrat, okay?”
The line earned the president a round of applause. Then, he continued.
“They are doing it for that reason,” he remarked. “Because they’re not going to be voting with us for the most part. A lot of them aren’t going to be voting. A lot of times it doesn’t matter because in many places, like California, the same person votes many times. You probably heard about that.”
“They always like to say, oh, that’s a conspiracy theory,” Trump said with a mocking tone. “Not a conspiracy theory, folks. Millions and millions of people [vote illegally]. And it’s very hard because the state guards their records.”
CA Secy of State Alex Padilla, the state's top elections official, responds to Trump claim 'millions & millions' vote illegally in California: "It is sad the president continues to recycle his same old lies. Frankly, it is tiring to have a conspiracy theorist in the White House."

Dr. Trump’s medicine show: Why is the president pushing an unproven drug? Follow the money
The "Trump is all about Trump" maxim goes a long way to explaining his obsessive beer-funneling of a malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine down the gullets of COVID-19 victims.
New York firefighter gets emotional talking about EMTs who feel guilty they’re too sick to work
The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.
Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.
"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."
‘Can we get a refund?’ Trump flack Stephanie Grisham faces a landslide of mockery after her abrupt dismissal
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham is reportedly being relieved of her duties after having gone a full ten months on the job without holding a single press briefing.
Given that Grisham hauled in a salary of $183,000 despite never actually appearing before reporters to answer questions, some Americans are asking if we can get a "refund" for her purported services.
Others, meanwhile, are simply happy to see her leave despite having rarely, if ever, seen her talk in public.
