Trump Warns Republican Party to ‘Pass the Save Act’ or ‘Go Home and Cry Themselves to Sleep’

Former President Donald Trump issued a statement Tuesday warning Republican lawmakers they had no choice but to pass the SAVE Act, warning that “our entire electoral system is under siege.”

The Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act would amend the nation’s voter registration law, requiring states to obtain proof of citizenship from voters for federal elections and removing non-citizens from the voter rolls.

“Republicans need to pass the Save Act, or go home and cry themselves to sleep,” Trump wrote on his proprietary social media platform Truth Social.

He continued: “Illegal non-citizen immigrants are getting the right to vote, pushed by corrupt Democrat politicians who are not stopped by an equally dishonest Justice Department.”

Under the legislation, voters would be required to provide proof of citizenship through identification and documents such as a passport, a government-issued photo ID proving the person was born in the United States, military ID cards or a valid photo ID, and documents proving citizenship, such as a birth certificate, the legislation states.

Democratic leaders are urging House members to vote against the bill as the vote approaches, saying it would represent “an extreme burden” on voters. [on] “countless Americans” to be able to vote.

“Democrats can’t win with their policies, the only way to win is to CHEAT. They do it at every level of government, and they do it well. That’s how they elect a clueless moron like Joe Biden,” the former president said in his Truth Social post. “The Justice Department is CORRUPT and will do nothing to help. They have no shame!”

If the SAVE Act successfully passes the House of Representatives, it will face an uphill battle in the Democratic-controlled Senate.

Even if the bill passes the upper house of Congress, President Biden has vowed to kill the legislation if asked to sign it.

Trump ended his message by threatening to “prosecute election fraudsters at levels never seen before” if he is elected in November, saying such individuals would be “sent to prison for long periods of time.”

The former president appeared to specifically call out Facebook creator and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, saying: “We already know who you are. DON’T DO THIS! ZUCKERBUCKS, be careful!”
