Jon Voight says fighting ‘lie’ Biden won is ‘greatest fight since the Civil War’

Actor Jon Voight released a video Tuesday attacking the results of the presidential election and President-elect Joe Biden, saying the U.S. is now entering the “greatest fight since the Civil War.”

The Academy Award-winner and longtime Trump supporter took to Twitter to condemn what he alleged was a rigged White House race, calling the aftermath a “battle of righteousness versus Satan.”

In the almost two-minute video, posted with the caption “We all know the truth,” Voight said he’s disgusted with the “lie” that Biden is president-elect and claimed there will be a price to pay for those who are trying to deceive the American public.

“We must fight this corruption that has taken over and fight for the good that seems lost,” he said. “Let us give our trust to God, and fight now for Trump’s victory because we all know this ballot count is corruption like they are. So let us not back down. Let us fight this fight as if it is our last fight on earth.”

President Trump has refused to concede the election to Biden after news networks and The Associated Press on Saturday called the race for the former vice president. The Trump campaign has mounted numerous legal challenges in key battleground states where Biden is leading, but his legal team has not provided any evidence of widespread voter fraud.

Voight has referred to Trump as “one of our nation’s greatest presidents.” Trump previously awarded Voight the National Medal of Arts for his contribution to American culture.
