President Trump ripped Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for his dubious monetary contribution to election processes in the state of Michigan at a Save America rally on Saturday in Washington Township, Michigan.
“Zuckerberg…he used to come kiss my ass at the white house,” he told the crowd, who chuckled in response. “He flooded local Michigan election offices” with millions of dollars, Trump continued.
Zuckerberg’s involvement with the election processes in Michigan has been criticized. He allegedly influenced the election by funneling millions through his non-profit organization, the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL), into election offices and even ballot-counting rooms.
Trump stated, “This guy [Zuckerberg] gives $417 million to all these states… it’s passed around like pizza at a party…you got millions of dollars here…and the majority went to deep blue areas…”
Additionally, President Trump touched on Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, who has been accused of accepting money from Zuckerberg with the alleged intent of swaying election results favorably for Joe Biden during the 2020 presidential election in a new lawsuit brought by the Thomas More Society.
Trump called her “radical” and pointed out that “7.7 million unsolicited mail-in ballots” were sent out in Michigan. “When you hear ‘mail-in ballot,”” Trump said, “you can guarantee you have a corrupt election.”
He also decried the injustice of those who have been caught cheating and how they seem to go unpunished. At the same time, Democrats demand disciplinary action on Republicans who question the results of the 2020 election.
“The people who are looking for the truth…they should go to jail [according to Democrats],” Trump told the crowd.
Further, Trump pointed out the Truth the Vote election report, which is upcoming, and said that there could be as many as “four or five million people” who were caught cheating.
