Trump: ‘Our Country Is Being Destroyed’ Because ‘the Election Was Stolen’
'We did win, we did win. … We won by a lot, not just a little'
President Donald Trump came out swinging at his Save America rally in Michigan, declaring the election was "stolen" and that America is being "destroyed."
“We’re being invaded by millions and millions of people," Trump said, adding that “10 to 12 million people” would flood the country if Title 42 were to be repealed.
“The presidential election was rigged and stolen and because of that our country is being destroyed,” he said as the speech began.
“We did win, we did win. … We won by a lot, not just a little," Trump declared.
Touting DePerno and Karamo, Trump said the pair “will protect us from a corrupt election.”
In his remarks at the Michigan Stars Sports Center in Washington Township, which lasted about an hour and 45 minutes, Trump talked about high inflation and a surge in migrants along the southern border, as well what he described as a botched withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan.
He also said that if he had remained in office, Russia never would have invaded Ukraine, and inflation wouldn’t have gone up.

“The only thing they (Democrats) are good at is fixing elections,” Trump said.
“That’s about the only thing they do."
He also got huge applause when he teased another run for president in 2024.
“Would anybody like to see me run?” he asked, and the crowd of about 5,700 people exploded with cheers.
“We have to get to the bottom of what happened in 2020.”

“This is about making sure Michigan is not rigged and stolen again in 2024,” he said.
“So whatever you do, make sure you send a slate of delegates to support Kristina Karamo and Matt DePerno.”
Trump also attacked Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer as well as Attorney General Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson.
He called DePerno “a tough cookie” and Karamo “a fearless champion for election integrity.”
Following the speech, the Democratic National Committee put out a statement slamming Trump, saying he “took the stage alongside some of the most extreme members of the Republican Party to remind the people of Michigan what today’s Republican Party stands for.”
