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."
