Ex-president Donald Trump demanded just after midnight on Saturday morning that Gov. Doug Ducey provide “large-scale” security for the Maricopa audit of all 2.1 million ballots cast in the county in the 2020 national election.
Trump followed up with a second statement on Saturday afternoon saying that “Democrats are doing everything they can to stop the great Patriots of Arizona” from continuing the count.
In the first statement, sent out through his Save America PAC, he calls for the “state police or National Guard” to be “immediately sent out for protection.”
The follow-up email was basically tweet length, which is fitting as the sending of these statements through his PAC has been his practice since being permanently banned from Twitter and not launching a new social media platform of his own
