I mean, this is direct evidence of voter fraud

The Trump people are fully aware of this They are also aware of this that – there is no one better to lead this than the Trump family and the team of people they have put together. no one better to perform this operation There is nothing that will surprise them, there is nothing that will escape them There is nothing that they have not seen and are not prepared for
