Democrats warn Trump's voter fraud investigation will increase voter suppression

Image result for voter fraudHouse 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.

BS on the Dems. They protest because they intend to cheat in the future as they have in the past. Do the study and set policy to prevent cheating and illegal "voting".
Remember it was illegal voting that got Frankin elected and led to the scam called Obamacare.

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.

"...mostly..."?

Nay, "...ONLY..."!

Voter suppression defind: "Not allowing illegal aliens, non-citizens, and dead people to vote for Democrats.
The democrat party allowed open borders not for the love of the latino population, the democrat party suppressed voter ID laws and the democrat party brought as many immigrants to America for one reason only, to fill the voter both with as many democrats as possible. Yes a national voter ID card should be made law and all federal funds to California held until they eliminate the automatic registration with every drivers license issued. Any non citizen can acquire a driver's license. Yes the the voter fraud is massive. Every voter data base in the country should be completely verified to eliminate the dead, the immigrant and the illegals from voting. Use a national voter data base to verify only living, mentally capable United States Citizens.

I am with you. I live in Colorado and it has become a sanctuary state Thanks to dems-sessions-appointment invading from New York, California, and Mexico. Crime is through the roof and no one feels safe traveling.

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.

Yes, mentally capable would be a problem, the who.When mother was in the nursing home my brother and I discovered that the administration was assisting these people to vote. This was few years ago. This was a unit ful of Alzheimer patients. The politicians are low and no surprise for this to occur in Illinois. Again, that's been the problem with any legislation, written to identify those competent. Legal writers made it possible to exempt law makers time after time and penalized yu and I.

Isn't that supposed to be ONLY the responsibility of a legal guardian or someone with POA?

10-4 Big Buddy..

    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.          

Thank you Ray, we're right on on. Let's write Congress and tell them. There are so self involved with there social policy life, well you know.

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
