The president of the United States, Donald Trump, decided on Wednesday to end and end the advisory commission on the integrity of the electoral system that he created last May for the purpose of investigating alleged electoral fraud.
According to the White House, Trump’s decision responds that, “despite the substantial evidence” of electoral fraud in many cases, many states have refused to provide the necessary information to carry out the necessary investigations.
“Instead of entering into endless legal battles, a taxpayer’s coast, President Donald Trump has made an executive order to dissolve the Commission,” the White House said in a statement.
The commission has defended at all times that the information requested was always in the public domain, but almost twenty states can be added to the necessary data to consider it confidential, such as the latest social security numbers.
Despite their bipartisan character, Democrats have always received a commission that, although officially, vulnerabilities were found in the system that allowed for inappropriate voter registration and voting, some considered that their function was subsequent to that of a Trump to justify their defeat in the popular vote against the Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Trump won in November 2016 to Clinton, in the electoral college system by 304 votes against 232, but the Democrat won nearly three million popular votes more than the current president.
The tycoon went so far as to say that 3 to 5 million undocumented immigrants voted in the elections, which is why, in his opinion, the former secretary of the State won a popular vote. The secrecy with which the White House was announced today to decide the dissolution of the commission contrasts with the importance that Trump himself gave in creating it.
On May 11, when the president signed the executive order establishing his creation, Trump did not hesitate to disclose photos of the firm on his personal Twitter account in which he appeared with the country’s vice president, Mike Pence, who commissioned it. commission.
