By Fox News Staff WriterWashington, DC–November 15, 2017–President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he is “100% certain” the DNC is rigging the November election to keep him from winning.
“The DNC rigged the election,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.
“They stole the election from us.”
Trump has been repeatedly critical of the Democratic National Committee and its leadership in recent weeks.
Last month, he told CNN’s Chris Cuomo, “We’re going to have a big, big rally tomorrow.”
Trump told the Associated Press that he plans to take a series of actions to restore confidence in the electoral process, including:Immediately appointing an independent commission to review the results of the November 8 election, which would include a review of voter rolls, voting history, voting machine technology, and voting systems.
Immediately establishing a bipartisan commission to look into allegations of voter fraud and voter suppression.
Immediate and extensive sanctions on the DNC and its leaders.
Implementing the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, which the White House says would investigate alleged voting fraud and other election-related issues.
Imposing new sanctions on Russian officials and entities that meddled in the election.
Trump and other top Republicans have been raising concerns about Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential race and alleged interference in the presidential election.
The president and top Republican lawmakers have said the allegations have been “ridiculous,” “a total hoax,” and “unprecedented.”
Trump has repeatedly slammed the Democrats and said he will seek to overturn the election results.
Trump told reporters Tuesday that the “Democrats” are working on a plan to “fix” the electoral system, “not me,” but said it would be “very, very soon.”
“We’ll get to that soon,” he said.
Trump also took a shot at Democrats, saying, “I am 100% sure the DNC was trying to rig the election.”
“I’m 100% certain,” Trump said.
“And I’m sure the people that were involved in the rigged election are 100% clear on that.
So I will be telling you very soon.
I’m 100 percent sure.”
Trump said he would call on Congress to investigate “the Democratic leadership” for the alleged rigging of the election and has also suggested that his team could seek to investigate former FBI Director James Comey and his firing from the post.
