Trump Praises Texas Republicans for Disavowing 2020 Election Results
Trump posted his remarks on Truth Social on June 21
Former President Donald Trump praised Texas Republicans for rejecting the results of the largely disputed presidential election results.
Trump posted his remarks on Truth Social on June 21:
“Wow! Look at the Great State of Texas and their powerful Republican Party Platform on the 2020 Presidential Election Fraud."
“After much research and study, they disavow the national result for President. Such courage, but that’s why Texas is Texas!!!" he added.
"They know that a Country cannot survive without Free and Fair Elections (and STRONG BORDERS!)," Trump said.
The 45th president’s remarks came not long after Texas Republicans passed a resolution stating that Joe Biden was “not legitimately elected."
The Republicans added that the results of the 2020 presidential election where influenced by “substantial” election fraud in key metropolitan areas.
“We believe that the 2020 election violated Article 1 and 2 of the US Constitution, that various secretaries of state illegally circumvented their state legislatures in conducting their elections in multiple ways, including by allowing ballots to be received after November 3, 2020,” states the GOP’s resolution passed on June 18.
“We believe that substantial election fraud in key metropolitan areas significantly affected the results in five key states in favor of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr," it continued.
"We reject the certified results of the 2020 Presidential election, and we hold that acting President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States," he added.
James Wesolek told The Epoch Times that 5,500 delegates attended the convention, giving Republicans the chance to set priorities for the next legislative session due in 2023.
GOP's stance on the 2020 election results formed part of a new party platform also recommends numerous measures to bolster election integrity, which includes tightening the voter registration process and voter I.D.
The largest GOP in the nation's declaration saw massive criticism from media and political figures.
“Texas Republicans rightly have no faith in the 2020 election results and we don’t care how many times the elites tell us we have to,” said Matt Rinaldi, chairman of the Republican Party of Texas.
“The Texas Republican Party is raising record funds for election integrity, and we’ve made election integrity a top priority to ensure Texas never goes the way of Pennsylvania, Georgia, or Arizona. We refuse to let Democrats rig the elections in 2022 or 2024.”
Joe Biden received 306 electoral votes in the 2020 election and Donald Trump received 232 electoral votes, according to the U.S. National Archives.
Trump challenged the results, alleging massive fraud influenced the 2020 election.
Democrats and mainstream media have rubbished such allegations.
