Forty-fifth President Donald Trump posted on Truth Social on Tuesday applauding the weekend decision of the Texas GOP to pass a resolution stating that Joe Biden was “not legitimately elected” and that “substantial” election fraud in key areas influenced the results of the 2020 presidential election in favor of Biden.
“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,” stated a resolution passed on Saturday, the last day of a Texas GOP convention held in Houston.
“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.,” the resolution continues.
“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.”
The resolution concludes by encouraging all Republicans to vote in the midterm elections. “We strongly urge all Republicans to work to ensure election integrity and to show up to vote in November of 2022, bring your friends and family, volunteer for your local Republicans, and overwhelm any possible fraud.”
The resolution came after a screening of 2000 mules, a film created by conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza. Described as an exposé of “widespread, coordinated voter fraud in the 2020 election,” the film uses cell phone location data and surveillance footage to show a cohort of people who allegedly dropped off ballots in drop boxes up to 20 times each.
Trump posted on Truth Social supporting the resolution. “Wow! Look at the Great State of Texas and their powerful Republican Party Platform on the 2020 Presidential Election Fraud,” he said in a post. “After much research and study, they disavow the national result for President. Such courage, but that’s why Texas is Texas!!! They know that a Country cannot survive without Free and Fair Elections (and STRONG BORDERS!).”
A poll from the Economist and YouGov showed that 38% of Americans do not believe that Biden legitimately won the 2020 election.
