Trump Says Giuliani’s Election Efforts Will Be His ‘Crowning Achievement’ During Surprise Phone Call Into Pennsylvania Senate Hearing
President Donald Trump called into the Pennsylvania Senate’s special hearing on the 2020 election Wednesday and called former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s work on election related legal challenges “his crowning achievement.”
“This is going to be your crowning achievement,” the president said to Giuliani via speakerphone held to the mic by campaign legal counsel Jenna Ellis. “You’re saving our country.”
Trump spoke after Giuliani presented 12 witnesses, all of whom alleged various forms of potential fraud or irregularities with how election workers counted votes.
The president claimed that the testimony and affidavits collected by the campaign’s legal team prove that “this is an election we won easily, and we won it by a lot.”
“What happened here, this is not the United States of America,” he continued. “We got 74 million votes, and if you would have said 74 million votes the day before the election, every professional would have said there’s no way.”
Trump noted that he “got 11 million votes more than we had 4 years before in 2016, and we got many votes more than Ronald Reagan had when he won 49 states.”
“They cheated, it was a fraudulent election,” he closed. “This is a very important moment in the history of our country.”
