President Trump: H.R. 1 Election Reform Bill Will be a ‘Disaster’ for the US

President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he believes the House Democrats’ massive voter registration and campaign procedure reform bill—H.R. 1—will be a “disaster” for the country if it is passed through the Senate.

Yhe bill, also called the For the People Act, was passed in the House late on March 3 with a largely party-line vote of 220-210. It seeks to impose federal requirements on state voting procedures across the United States.

“I think it would be a disaster for our country,” Trump told Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo in a wide-ranging interview, that also touched upon issues including President Joe Biden’s immigration policies, COVID-19vaccines, and a potential 2024 presidential run.

The bill spans nearly 800 pages and would impose a number of voting and election changes, such as requiring disclosure of donors to religious and nonprofit advocacy groups and enabling incumbent congressmen and their challengers to receive a salary from campaign funds.

“It would be very unfair that Democrats should use COVID in order to do things that they can’t believe they got away with, what they did, and they didn’t get their legislatures to approve, and by the way in the Constitution, you have to do that,” Trump said.

“In the Constitution, it says the state legislatures have to approve changes—they made massive changes early—just before the election in some cases, and they made massive changes that not even mentioning all of the other things and all of the dishonesty in the election, the state legislatures did not approve these changes. Therefore, they’re not allowed,” the former president added.

“What will happen is the Democrats will be able to do what they did in the last—in the 2020 election, and even worse, potentially even worse,” Trump charged.
