Want proof that Republicans want to suppress voters? Just ask Trump.

We have heard the excuses for voter-ID requirements, opposition to vote-by-mail and voting-roll purges. It’s about voter fraud, you see. That is bunk, as President Trump essentially admitted Monday morning.


"The more people who vote, the worse Republicans will do"
Back to the more fundamental problem: Trump, lacking the filter most Republican operators have, blurts out the unseemly truth that the more people who vote, the worse Republicans will do. It is no wonder that Republicans — who disproportionately rely on the shrinking portion of the electorate that is white and older — have shifted into high gear since the Shelby County v. Holder decision invalidating “pre-clearance” in the 1965 Voting Rights Act. They need to extend the dominance of white voters as the electorate becomes more diverse and less amenable to messages of white resentment, antagonism toward government, racism and xenophobia.


"It is nothing less than a confession that voting suppression is essential to the Republican Party’s survival.
As was the case in the litigation against the administration’s travel bans, Trump’s own words are the best evidence of the underlying motives of right-wing actions. In those cases, Trump let on that the real reason for his travel ban was to exclude Muslims. Now, he confesses that the party needs to keep voting levels down or face devastating losses. It is nothing less than a confession that voting suppression is essential to the Republican Party’s survival.

THE REPUBLICAN LIE dating back to 1980. Now finally, the LIAR IN CHIEF blurts out the truth!
