Nearly 17 months ago, former President Donald Trump claimed he did not lose the 2020 presidential election, but stole it from him through widespread voter fraud.
There has been no evidence over the past year to back up these claims, but despite this, Trump has teamed up with supporters to create a film about the stolen election, the Washington Post reported.
The film “Rigged: The Zuckerberg Funded Plot to Defeat Donald Trump” premiered Tuesday night at the former president’s Mar-A-Lago estate.
Allies, supporters and paying members of the club all gathered to watch the 42-minute film by the chairman of Citizens United and David Bossie.
“Some people here are saying we shouldn’t be talking about 2020,” Bossie said during the screening, the Post reported. “I think it’s vital that we do. If we don’t prove what happened in 2020, how can we prevent it from happening again.”
The photo features several Trump advisers and alleges Democrats were aided by Facebook, which gave states money for voter turnout and education efforts. The movie poster shows Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg grabbing cash.
Trump shared his excitement for the film, saying he was looking forward to it more than other critically acclaimed movies like “Titanic” and “Gone with the Wind.”
Throughout the night, Bossie also introduced Trump as the “45th and 47th President of the United States,” the Post reported.
The businessman-turned-president showed the film in one of his grand ballrooms and posed for photos with guests to see the film.
Bossie was right in his comments that some don’t want to talk about the 2020 election as the number of Republicans urging Trump to drop his stolen campaign claims continues to rise.
But for every person calling on Trump to stop spreading his narrative, another supports him.
Kari Lake, a Republican candidate for governor of Arizona and a supporter of Trump’s claims, approached members of the ‘mainstream media’ at the event, telling them to resign as they are ‘the enemy of the people’ .
Others in attendance included retired Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman and former Trump aides Peter Navarro and Corey Lewandowski.
Trump shared his thoughts at a pre-show dinner and ahead of the premiere. During his speech, he said that if he had been president, Russia would not have invaded Ukraine.
“It just never would have happened,” Trump said of the Ukraine invasion.
He went on to say that there would be fewer civilian deaths. He even attacked gas prices, saying they would be lower if the elections were not “rigged”.
The former president went on to say that he was going to reveal levels of “ballot harvesting that they never thought possible.”
Trump was referring to a report by an outside group that was about to be released. However, it was unclear what he meant, but he said his advisers were working on the project.
As the night wore on, Trump continued to tease a potential run for president in 2024, to which the crowd cheered when he declared, “We’ll make America great, again.”
