During her Monday night speech that headlined the DNC convention, former First Lady Michelle Obama suggested President Trump is trying to use tactics to cheat in the upcoming election because they “cannot win fair and square.”
We have to vote for Joe Biden in numbers that cannot be ignored. Because right now folks who know they cannot win fair and square at the ballot box are doing everything they can to stop us from voting.
They’re closing down polling places in minority neighborhoods. They’re purging voter rolls.
They’re sending people out to intimidate voters. And they’re lying about the security of our ballots. These tactics are not new.
Michelle also pleaded “This is not the time to withhold our votes in protest.”
