President Trump has been very active lately on his new communication platform.
In Trump’s most recent statement, he praised the ongoing New Hampshire Audit and stated that the audit has revealed that “large-scale voting machines appear to count NON-EXISTING VOTES”.
He then called out Mitch McConnell for being practically doing nothing in the fight against voter fraud.
The statement concluded with Trump dialing in on a Georgia’s judge recent ruling that allows ballots from the 2020 election to be unsealed and examined.

President Trump was referring to the “fold effect” which is evidence found in the audit that shows that 60% of ballots with folds were improperly counted which resulted in a high error rate in counting.
The Washington Examiner has more details on the significance of the fold effect that even has President Trump talking about it:
An auditor in Windham, New Hampshire, said the majority of ballots had a fold in them and are being reviewed through the town’s audit process investigating the 2020 election.
As many as 60% of ballots with machine-made or handmade folds were improperly counted by the town’s four scanning machines, Harri Hursti, one of three auditors selected for the process, told the New Hampshire Union Leader on Monday.
“The error rate was way higher than we expected,” Hursti said.
Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed legislation on April 12 ordering an audit of the ballot-counting machines and memory cards used during the 2020 general election in Windham, as well as a hand tabulation of roughly 10,000 ballots for the state House, governor, and U.S. senator races.
Two of the auditors previously expressed their suspicion that the folds may have been to blame, but Hursti’s comments on Monday provided more context to the scope of the issue.
“Because if someone voted for all four Republican candidates and the ballot happened to have its fold line going through St. Laurent’s target, then that might be interpreted by the machines as an overvote, which would then subtract votes from each of those four Republican candidates,” said Philip Stark, another member of the three-person audit team, according to a WMUR 9 report last week. “Conversely, if there were not four votes already in that contest by the voter, a fold line through that target could have caused the machine to interpret it as a vote for St. Laurent.”
The counting machines used in Windham, as well as in 85% of New Hampshire cities and towns, are some of the oldest in circulation, the New Hampshire Union Leader reported.
The age of the machines, which come from AccuVote, makes them harder to hack, Hursti told the outlet.

Here’s Trump full statement on the audit that is ongoing in Windham, New Hampshire:
President Trump is right these audits deserve more attention then what they are getting.
It appears most Republicans are scared to talk about them because then their mainstream interviews will disappear.
