Former President Donald Trump held nothing back after President Joe Biden traveled to Pennsylvania on Tuesday to criticize GOP-backed election integrity laws and urge a halt to the Pennsylvania audit.
During his visit, Biden went so far as to call the audit, pushed by Republican state legislators, a “21st century Jim Crow assault” during a speech at the National Constitution Center, close to where the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence were adopted.
“His visit is a joke,” Trump said, blasting Biden’s visit to Philadelphia, which he calls a “cesspool of corruption, which will soon be revealed by the audit.”
The 45th president called on Biden to “let the Forensic Audit go,” and to not “fight it,” so it will show everyone “how honest [the election] was.”

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
Joe Biden is going to Pennsylvania today in a rush in order to stop the Forensic Audit that the Pennsylvania Republican Senate is in the process of doing. Philadelphia was a cesspool of corruption, which will soon be revealed by the audit.
Why are they so concerned that a President, who never goes anywhere, would hop onto beautiful Air Force One and head to Philadelphia if it were an honest election? Why not let the audit go forward and make everybody, on both sides, happy? The results will be the results.
But they know it was not an honest election, Philadelphia was one of the most corrupt cities in the Country—and so is Detroit, and so is Milwaukee, and so is Atlanta, and Pittsburgh, and Oakland, and Baltimore. Corruption has gone on for years, but in the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, with the mail-in ballots and the use of Covid to cheat, corruption reached new levels. Remember the poll watchers being thrown out, the windows being sealed so nobody could look in, the ballot drops, and all of the other events that took place that changed so rapidly the Big Trump Win on election night.
Joe should say go forward with this, with all of these audits. His visit is a joke. He doesn’t need to visit, all he needs to do is let them do an audit and find out what happened. Who knows, maybe they’ll say the election was on the up and up, but many people would be shocked. Let the audit go forward like it is in Arizona, despite 107 Democrat lawyers trying to stop it and failing.
Let the Forensic Audit go, Joe. Don’t fight it. Show them how honest it was.
