House Democrats on Wednesday panned President Donald Trump’s pledge to pursue a “major” investigation into alleged voter fraud, describing the president’s demand as “insecure” and saying the probe will only increase voter suppression.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she "felt sorry" for Trump and even prayed for him after learning of his calls for an investigation.
“For a person who is newly elected president of the United States to be so insecure ... to suggest and to undermine the integrity of our voting system, is really strange,” she told reporters Wednesday during a news conference in the Capitol.
“I frankly feel very sad about the president making this claim,” she added. “I felt sorry for him. I even prayed for him.”
Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to call for an investigation into voter fraud and irregularities in the voting rolls — two days after he repeated his claim during a private meeting with Hill leaders, without evidence, that he only lost the popular vote because millions of people illegally voted for Hillary Clinton.
Democrats are still upset that they lost in a landslide in November. States that turned from blue to red all enacted new voter laws which kept millions of voters away from the poll. If California enacted the same laws, Trump would have won California in a landslide as well. All states should ensure that mostly patriots can and will vote.
TOTALLY. Until obama came along...voting had been relatively honest. But with all the illegals that have flooded this country particularly, and the way dems have bent over backwards for them...yeah, I see where a NATIONAL registry is needed to prevent so many people from voting more than once, and to make it easier to vote no matter where you may be at the time of a vote. HOWEVER....I've only one question right now about your plan...WHAT/HOW do we determine "mentally capable"..............cause frankly, in my book that would eliminate liberals/democrats from the get-go.
Isn't that supposed to be ONLY the responsibility of a legal guardian or someone with POA?

Philip, I agree 100% this ID card should have a number for each individual just like your drivers license and Social Security cards have for each person. Then entered into a national database where it would be kept for voting purposes only, if someone tried to vote more then once their vote would be nullified. This is why the Democrats fight this every time it comes up, they know there is fraud going on. This is why they issue drivers license, to all of these illegals.
