Former President Donald Trump released a statement on Friday in support of an audit on the 2020 presidential election in Texas.

Although Trump won the state of Texas, he has been putting pressure on Texas Governor Greg Abbott to hold an election audit in the state.

Trump’s full statement on Friday reads as follows:

Just heard Patriots are moving the Texas Audit Bill forward. Texas State Senator Paul Bettencourt filed Senate Bill 47, legislation that authorizes Texans to initiate a strong and real Forensic Audit of the 2020 Presidential Election Scam—not a weak risk-limiting audit that is being slow-walked through the Secretary of State’s office.

Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a great guy, sent the bill to the State Affairs Committee the very same day, and it should quickly pass through the Senate. There is still time for the House to take up the issue in the Third Special session with House Bill 16.

I’d like to thank Dan and Paul for their bold leadership, and for listening to Texans who are demanding answers about Nov. 3. Everyone feels certain Governor Abbott will follow suit. This will have a big impact on the upcoming 2022 and 2024 elections in Texas. Texas will always be red, but we must stop the cheating.

Keep it up and get this bill over the finish line. Passing the audit bill will be a Big Win for Texas! Let’s make sure the great people of Texas believe and trust their elections.

Texas State Sen. Paul Bettencourt responded to Trump’s statement, tweeting, “Save America Pres. Donald J. Trump supports SB47, my election audit bill that passed Senate 17-14. Lt. Gov. @DanPatrick refers it in #txlege. Bill starts from October 2020 w/ Harris Co having 1884 more votes than on roster! Trump Texas is red but still have to stop the cheating!”

On Thursday, Gov. Abbott announced, “I’m adding increased illegal voting penalties to the Special Session agenda. Texas has made tremendous progress in upholding the integrity of our elections. Increasing penalties for illegal voting will send an even clearer message that voter fraud will not be tolerated in Texas.”

  1. The former President Donald Trump seems like he’s setting a precedent with having more states perform audits of Elections. This cold become Standard procedure after any/all Elections from here on out.

  2. I do not understand why Allen West want to run for Governor in Texas, when we already have a great Governor in Abbott…he should go to other states where we have RINOs….I retired here (from the US Army) in San Antonio, Tx almost 30 years ago…and Abbott has been the best Governor so far….

  3. Chupacabra…thank you for your service. I think Governor Abbott is an excellent man to represent Texas. I don’ t live there but I support him, most definitely. He will fight this mess and Texans will stand proudly and support him. Keep Texas RED.
