Obama: ‘More Likely to Be Struck by Lightning’ than Witness Voter Fraud

President Barack Obama ridiculed Donald Trump’s suggestion that the election would be rigged, pointing out that voter fraud did not exist in the United States.

“You are much likelier to be struck by lightening than have somebody next to you commit voter fraud,” he said, citing a 2014 study. “You’d win the Powerball.”

Obama made his remarks during a rally for Hillary Clinton and Democratic Senate Candidate Patrick Murphy in Miami Florida on Thursday.

During his speech, he said he was thankful that so many Republicans had stepped up to call Trump’s accusations of a rigged election “nonsense.”

He pointed out that many of the governors in swing states, including Florida, were Republicans.

“They’re not going to rig the election for Hillary Clinton,” he said.

But the president called for the audience to take Trump’s words seriously, suggesting that the Republican nominee was aligning with enemies of the United States.

“That is not a joking matter … that is dangerous,” Obama said. “Because when you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s minds about the legitimacy of our elections, that undermines our democracy.”
