MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, a likely Republican candidate for governor, claimed President Donald Trump actually won his home state of Minnesota.
“Donald Trump is going to be our president 100% for the next four years. 100%,” said Lindell, who’s participating in a “March for Trump” bus tour.
During a stop outside the Georgia Capitol Friday afternoon, Lindell said the purpose of the bus tour is to draw attention to election fraud.
“It’s worse than you ever could imagine. My home state of Minnesota — I made a promise to the president that we would win my state — so I look at numbers every day, I went to each county in my state and looked at the deviations, there’s impossibilities there. We actually won Minnesota by 65,000 votes,” he claimed.
“They just cheated so bad in Minnesota because we could vote 45 days early there,” he added. “When you can vote that early, that gives you a lot of time to cheat.”
Secretary of State Steve Simon said this week that there is “no credible evidence” of voter fraud in Minnesota, calling suggestions to the contrary “foolish and irresponsible.”
Lindell also mentioned that he recently spoke with the president, who is “all in for me running for governor of Minnesota,” said Lindell.
The businessman and former crack addict hasn’t officially announced his candidacy, but he did take some shots at incumbent Gov. Tim Walz, saying Walz is competing with Gretchen Whitmer and Gavin Newsom for worst governor in the country.
“Remember where all the riots started. One of the worst decisions ever made by a governor and mayor that manifest into riots around the country and right here in Georgia,” said Lindell, referring to Walz’s response to May’s George Floyd riots.
“I really believe businessmen, rather than career politicians, should be running this country,” he added.
