Warren: Trump’s voter fraud commission should be called ‘vote intimidation commission’

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) ripped President Trump’s signing of an executive order to create an “election integrity” commission Thursday, saying it should instead be called a “vote intimidation commission.”

“Today [Trump] signed an order launching a ‘Vote Fraud Commission,’ but it really should be called a “Vote Intimidation Commission,” Warren tweeted.

“[Trump] picked Kris Kobach – architect of some of the most racist & anti-voter state laws – to lead this new conspiracy crusade,” she continued over a series of tweets. “The GOP spent [years] gutting voting rights & suppressing black & Latino votes. We can’t allow [Trump] to turn the clocks back more.

 

  

Trump signed an executive order Wednesday establishing a commission tasked with reviewing Trump’s allegations that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 elections.  

{mosads}Trump has made repeated claims that the reason he lost the popular vote to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was because of millions of illegal votes, but has offered no evidence to support his claims.
