    Wondering how much better the country would be now if Trump had been elected. Also how many problems within the election was never really examined before they were presented to judges.??

      I do not know why he wants to run again. The country was in a mess when he left it. He does not know anything about Government, except tax laws and loopholes. He is not a politician, he is a womanizer. He does not want the country to come together, he is a divider. He will never win the election unless he cheats, period. He is a liar.

    81 million Votes for Biden is obvious Fraud. 4 States wrote Pence letters asking for 10 days to investigate Fraud the Letters were Ignored and at 3AM the Election was Certified. Videos of ballot boxes plainly documented Fraud. Many Voter Registrations were Invalid Biden could not attract large crowds. Trump had huge Crowds never before seen. Stop listening to Liberal Media.

      The assertion that four states wrote letters to Vice President Mike Pence requesting a 10-day investigation into fraud is partially accurate. However, these letters were not ignored. On January 6, 2021, during the joint session of Congress, Pence received these letters but ultimately followed the constitutional process by presiding over the certification of the Electoral College results.

      Regarding crowd sizes, it’s essential to recognize that large crowds at political events do not directly correlate with election outcomes. Factors such as campaign strategies, demographics, and regional preferences influence crowd attendance.

      It’s essential to differentiate between expressing disagreement with election results and making evidence-based claims of fraud. While some individuals may dispute the outcome, it’s crucial to rely on verified information and official results.

      Take note: Fewer Republicans, including myself, support Trumps claim of voter fraud.
