(FreedomBeacon.com)- In an interview last Tuesday, former President Donald Trump blasted Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg and called on both state legislatures and the federal government to ban the private financing of US elections.
In her best-selling book Rigged: How the Media, Big Tech and the Democrats Seized Our Elections, Mollie Hemingway outlined the extent of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s interference in the 2020 election.
Using the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) and the Center for Election Innovation and Research, Zuckerberg poured nearly $420 million into the 2020 election, the purpose of which was to advance mail-in voting efforts and boost Democrat turnout in swing states.
By accepting the funding, local election offices had to relinquish control to the left-wing staffers hired by the organizations. These left-wing activists designed ballots, dealt with ballot “curing,” and handled Democrat voter registration drives.
And in an interview with Breitbart News, Trump said laws should be passed to bar this type of election interference in the future.
Trump added that mail-in voting should also not be allowed. Saying that mail-in voting is “rife for fraud,” Trump said that we don’t know where all the mail-in ballots from the 2020 election came from. He said many people got more than one ballot.
Trump told Breitbart that voting should be limited to one day and absentee ballots should be limited to military personnel and those who are physically unable to show up in person. “Otherwise,” Trump said, “you aren’t going to have honest elections.”
As of the end of March, seventeen state legislatures passed bills to ban or restrict the use of private funding for elections. In six of those states, the bills were vetoed by the governor, including Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf.
Michigan received over $16 million in Zucker-bucks for the 2020 election while Pennsylvania received $25 million.
A recently-released Citizens United documentary, “Rigged: The Zuckerberg-Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump” breaks down how Mark Zuckerberg bought off local elections offices in the 2020 election.
