President Trump is planning to hold campaign-style rallies at which he will reveal obituaries of Americans who supposedly voted in the 2020 presidential election despite being deceased, a campaign official confirms to The Post.
The group of rallies, first reported Sunday by Axios, will be focused on highlighting the Trump campaign’s legal effort to win back a lost election by highlighting specific examples of voter fraud.
The obituaries specifically are meant to act as evidence that President-elect Biden won the election by what the Trump team has repeatedly referred to as “illegal” votes.
While specific locations and dates have not yet been announced, the Trump team is focusing their efforts on the must-win swing states: Georgia, Arizona and Pennsylvania, although other states could be included, a campaign official told the Post.
There is “no daylight” between those working on the Trump campaign and those in the Trump White House, specifically senior adviser Jared Kushner and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
“We all have the same goal in mind, which is using the legal process over the next many days and weeks ahead to make sure that the president is re-elected,” one adviser told The Post.
President-elect Biden won the 2020 White House race on Saturday, after clinching the must-win state of Pennsylvania. He has since claimed victory and begun building out his transition team, but President Trump has refused to concede the race.
Instead, Trump has repeatedly claimed Biden won by “illegal votes,” and continues to vow to fight the election outcome in court, questioning its legitimacy.
On Sunday, Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said he intends to file up to 10 lawsuits alleging election fraud.
Speaking to Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” the former NYC mayor argued that, “At this point, it would be wrong for him to concede.”
“There is strong evidence that this was an election that in at least three or four states, and possible 10, it was stolen. In other words, it was based on false votes. Now, you can’t let an election go into history without challenging that,” he continued.
Besides a single example alleged by the Trump campaign of voter fraud in Nevada, which would not have been enough to sway an entire election outcome if proven, the team has not provided evidence of widespread fraud.
Speaking to host Maria Bartiromo, Giuliani pledged that voters would see evidence this week as part of the lawsuits.
“Right now we have one [lawsuit],” he said. “We have two that are being drafted, and the potential is 10. We haven’t investigated all the rest of those states. … You want an estimate? By the end of the week we’ll have four or five.”
