Syndicated Columnist George Will said Monday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has a point to make about rigged elections, “if he would just make it more clearly.”
“[Trump] sweeps all his grievances into one big puddle,” Will said. “He talks about the media, he talked about the primaries, he talked about the polls, he talked about the Republican National Committee.”
Will added that most Americans think of government intervention when they think of a rigged election, and believe past elections have been rigged by the IRS.
The Democratic fight against voter ID laws also does not appear to be innocent, according to Will.
“[Democrats] say, ‘Well that burdens the exercise of a fundamental right,’” said Will. “The Supreme Court has said that travel is a fundamental right. No one thinks that showing an ID at the airport burdens that fundamental right.”
