Donald Trump said Monday he's afraid of losing the presidential election because of voter fraud in cities like Philadelphia.
During speeches in Ambridge, Pa. and Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Trump warned that he's heard of voter fraud happening in the Keystone State.
"So important that you get out and vote. So important that you watch other communities, because we don't want this election stolen from us," Trump said in Ambridge, reports The Washington Post. "We don't want this election stolen from us. We do not want this election stolen."
Later Monday in Wilkes-Barre, Trump expanded on the subject. Sopan Deb of CBS News posted Trump's words on Twitter:
As the Post reports, several voting precincts near Philadelphia did not tally a single vote for Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 election. It's not clear if voter fraud was to blame or if the voters simply supported President Barack Obama over Romney, but Trump's words sent a message that he's concerned about losing votes to Democrat Hillary Clinton next month because of illegal voting practices.
Last week, Trump suggested that the Obama administration is letting illegal aliens into the U.S. so they can cast a vote next month.
