Melania Trump Speaks Out On Election: ‘We Must Protect Our Democracy’

First lady Melania Trump speaks out in calling for the protection of our “democracy with complete transparency,” and that every legal vote to be counted, disputing CNN report that alleges that she urged her husband President Trump to accept that he lost the 2020 Presidential Election to Democrat Joe Biden.

“The American people deserve fair elections,” Melania tweeted Sunday in her first remarks since Tuesday election. “Every legal – not illegal – vote should be counted. We must protect our democracy with complete transparency.”

The tweet from the First Lady comes after CNN claims, citing two unnamed sources that both her and Trump’s son-in-law, Senior Adviser Jared Kushner “approached” President Trump to “come to terms with President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.”

“The first lady, according to a separate source familiar with the conversations, has privately said the time has come for him to accept the election loss,” CNN reported Sunday. “Though the first lady has not publicly commented on the election, she has privately weighed in with her opinion, the source noted.”

Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller denied CNN report.

“This story is not true,” Jason Miller tweeted adding the CNN’s article. “Given undetermined electoral outcomes in multiple states and serious voting irregularities and lack of transparency in others, Jared has advised @realDonaldTrump to pursue all available legal remedies to ensure accuracy.”

Axios’ Jonathan Swan disputed the reporting on the president’s son-in-law, tweeting, “Kushner has been encouraging the legal strategy and is not some conciliatory/restraining voice telling him to concede.” 

Major news outlets have reported Biden as the winner of the 2020 election, calling him the president-elect. President Trump has pushed back on these headlines, stating that Biden “has not been certified as the winner of any states.”

“The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor,” Trump said in a campaign statement Saturday after news outlets called Biden the winner of Pennsylvania, putting him over the 270 mark. “In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process.  Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.”

“So what is Biden hiding? I will not rest until the American People have the honest vote count they deserve and that Democracy demands,” the statement continues.

The Trump campaign is gearing up for a legal battle over the election results beginning on Monday, with Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) leading the campaign’s recount team in Georgia and the team preparing new lawsuits.

    Special Note to President Trump: Sir, please accept my thanks. Between your actions since walking down that escalator through this date; and those of all of those choosing to oppose you and your supporters have validated those lessons learned (see below) I penned following 26 years as a soldier and into my third year as a police chief. Thank you sir and rest assured should you call I and many other vets/soldiers/cops will come prepared for any mission assigned.

    Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired

    My fellow Americans:

    Question: Can you guess which of these lessons learned were pre-Trump versus post-Trump?

    Question: Through I began my 26 year military service in Ike’s last year in office (1960) and after as many more years as a civilian cop/security consultant, and am pushing the hell out of 78 years young I am ready to pick up a weapon and stand a post; what about you?

    A Soldier/Cop’s Lessons Learned

    * The greatest threats to the American people are the corrupt and/or incompetent politicians/bureaucrats/academicians found at every level of government/academia, and the majority of the so-called media.
     * The American people are the most effectively lied to people in modern times thanks primarily to the American political class, the American bureaucracy, the American media, and American academia.
     * Most of the politicians/bureaucrats/academicians media types I have encountered during my years as a soldier/cop I most kindly refer to as; self-serving, witless, cowards.
     * The American Profession of Arms and our brothers/sisters in blue have failed to protect the American people from all of their enemies, both foreign and ‘most especially’ domestic.
     * Arrogance coupled with ignorance equals stupidity.
     * There are only two primary requirements to be a career soldier and/or cop in America. One must be smart enough to do the work and dumb enough to take the job.
     * American soldiers and police officers must in addition to mastering all of their professionally mandated tasks learn to accomplish the same with at least one arm tied behind their backs and their vision impaired 50% or more.
     * After carefully watching the whole of the political class for many years I can say without reservation that most of the group will sell their souls and our bodies just to remain in power.
     * The Seven C’s of Leadership according to a survey of 1646 Vietnam era ground combat veterans listed of the order of their importance to the surveyed veterans are; Candor, Competence, Consistency, Commitment, Courage, Compassion, and Courtesy. The reason the soldiers in the survey chose the word “candor” is because to them candor encompasses both omission and co-mission. To a combat soldier the lack of absolute candor, be it co-mission or omission, are equal sins! In short, soldiers expect/demand absolute candor from their leaders before all else. Note: Have observed/concluded that democrats are masters of co-mission while republicans can claim the title of masters of omission!
     * Want to see what the United States of America will look like if the left takes control of the government? Take your pick, New York City, Baltimore, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, or the complete packages; California, New York, Illinois, etc, etc, etc…..
     * If the so-called progressive movement continues unchecked a number of able veterans/soldiers/cops are going to be presented with a challenge/decision. Are the American people worth another drop of our sweat much less our blood?
     *I came to realize after many years as a soldier/cop that I had more respect for those I have killed and/or jailed than I do for most American politicians. I referred to most American politicians as self-serving/witless/cowardly/pissants until I retired to the deep woods and came to know that pissants are neither self-serving nor witless, and certainly not cowards!

    What I would like to know is where are all of the Republicans, our so called Elected officials? Why are they not standing behind the President and fighting against this Illegal Election? There was one video that showed a female Vote Counter stamping the ballot with a received date and then proceeding to fill in the ballot; not once but a number of times. Why hasn’t this woman been arrested? Her job was to COUNT the Votes received NOT Fill In the Ballots Received. Haul this woman into an FBI office and explain to her just how many years in jail she is facing and I will be willing to bet that she will sing like the proverbial canary and give names and addresses of the people who paid her to help destroy our election process.

Being a reporter seems a ticket out to the world.
