One day before today’s recall election in California, former President Donald Trump spoke out to warn that it will be “rigged” for Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom to win.

“Does anybody really believe the California Recall Election isn’t rigged? Millions and millions of Mail-In Ballots will make this just another giant Election Scam, no different, but less blatant, than the 2020 Presidential Election Scam!” Trump said, according to Daily Mail.


This came days after Newsom blasted Trump in an interview on Friday.

“There is a thread within the Republican Party that, if they don’t get what they want, they are willing to assault the core tenets of an election in ways that have far-reaching consequences,” Newsom said. “It’s very, very damaging and baseless, absolutely baseless.”

Larry Elder, the Republican who is considered to be the frontrunner of Newsom’s challengers, is already alleging voter fraud on his campaign website. Under a tab on the site that reads “Stop Fraud,” Elder asks his supporters to sign a petition demanding that an investigation be launched by the California legislature into instances of fraud in the recall election.

“We trust in our elected officials to safeguard that ballot box, such that its results will truly reflect our will as Californians,” Elder said on his website, according to Yahoo News. “However, when those officials, either through laziness or incompetence, allow thieves to steal amidst the dead of night and cheat our ballot box, we can no longer rely on its contents. Will we now have to fight the California jury box, in the hope that the final box — the one most akin to Pandora’s — remains closed?”

“As is the case, we implore you,” he continued, “to join us in this fight as you are able, primarily by signing our petition demanding a special session of the California Legislature to investigate and ameliorate the twisted results of this 2021 Recall Election of Governor Gavin Newsom.”

Elder recently called for a “fair” election in an interview after he was asked if he would accept the results of this recall election, should he lose.

“I think we all ought to be looking at election integrity,” Elder said. “Let’s all make sure that the election is a fair election.”


When Democrats stole last year’s presidential election from Trump, they showed that they have no problem lying, cheating, and stealing just to obtain power for themselves. Given how desperate they are to keep their puppet Newsom in power, it’s hard to believe that they wouldn’t rig this recall election in their favor as well.
