Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

10/09/21

Texas Speaker of the House Dade Phelan is another Mitch McConnell. He is not fighting for the people of Texas. Speaker Phelan should immediately move the Forensic Audit bill, SB 47 by Senator Bettencourt that passed out of the State Senate this week, to the floor. The Speaker knows the bill will overwhelmingly pass the House with Republican support.

While standing in the way of a real election audit, Speaker Phelan just weakened the penalty for voting illegally in the state of Texas from a felony to a misdemeanor, siding with the Democrats and calling their amendment that makes a mockery of our election laws “thoughtful.” After the 2020 Presidential Election Scam we need tougher penalties for cheating in our elections, not weaker ones. 

Texans are tired of Phelan’s weak RINO leadership in the State House. Texas is a very red state, even more than people know.

If this doesn't pass soon, we look forward to seeing him in the Texas primary. It will get done one way, or the other!
