Trump’s Own Child Caught Committing ‘Voter Fraud’ By His Definition (DETAILS)

Early Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced that he will be pursuing a nationwide investigation into voter fraud.

He stated — on Twitter of course:

‘I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!’

This voter fraud, Trump has claimed on other occasions, is what cost him the popular vote, which he lost to Hillary Clinton by a margin of almost three million votes.

Trump is the president because he captured the majority of votes in the densely populated, so-called “Rust Belt” states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, and thus garnered a winning margin in the electoral college.

Him having lost the popular vote has irked him greatly throughout the weeks since the election, with him making, for example, the absolutely baseless claim that millions of votes were cast illegally in the 2016 presidential election.

There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to believe that any such massive voter fraud took place. It didn’t, and all of the evidence that does exist points to the contrary conclusion.

Trump, however, still wants to pursue a nationwide voter fraud investigation, aiming, as he wrote, to find out, among other things, how many voters are registered to vote in two states and who those voters are.

Well, guess what? The president’s own daughter, Tiffany Trump, who is the product of his second marriage with Marla Maples, is registered to vote in two states. She’s registered in the states of New York, where she was born and grew up, and in Pennsylvania, where she attended college, having graduated relatively recently.

Now, before you go off about how well, there’s some evidence for Trump’s claims of voter fraud right there, hold it. The problem with the case of Tiffany Trump being registered to vote in two states being used to bolster Trump’s claim of massive vote fraud taking place is that being registered to vote in two states does not constitute voter fraud. It’s not illegal.

As Fred Voigt, the deputy election commissioner for Philadelphia, told Heat Street, “The illegality only occurs if one votes in two places, not if you’re registered in both.”

Trump, however, is sticking to his definition of voter fraud as being registered to vote in two states, and thus pushing yet another one of his completely made up, falsified story lines on to the American people.
