Trump calls for sweeping election reform, ID verification after irregularities in 2020
'It's a disgrace that in 2020, no state in America even makes any real attempt to verify that those who cast ballots by mail are eligible and lawfully registered voters,' Trump said.
President Trump is calling for "landmark election reform," including mandatory signature verification for absentee ballots, after a November contest that his campaign says was rife with irregularities.
"It's a disgrace that in 2020, no state in America even makes any real attempt to verify that those who cast ballots by mail are eligible and lawfully registered voters," Trump said Saturday night during a rally in Georgia to support two GOP Senate hopefuls who face a runoff on Jan. 5 that will determine control of that chamber of Congress.
"After we win, we need to pass landmark election reform, including voter ID," he declared. "Is that so bad? Residency verification. Like, we live in the country, we live in the state. Citizenship confirmation."
"Believe me, this is something we're going to do. Because we can't allow it to happen," he added.
Trump alleged there was more ID verification for attendees at the Democrat's nominating convention last summer than at many polling places.
"You know, the Democrat National Committee had their convention. And they had a picture. You couldn't get in unless you had a picture, you had a photo ID. But when it comes to the most important thing, voting, they don't want to do it," he said.
