In the Video, Walker Says Trump Will Have the Right to Remedy ‘Fraud’ With His Own Electors
Walker opens the video by invoking Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution, which outlines who is eligible to serve as president and establishes the Electoral College, according to the U.S. Senate website.
The 21-year-old argued in the clip that the electoral votes won’t be counted until January 6, when Congress meets for a joint session.
“For your information, seven states sent their GOP electors to vote for Trump today,” Walker said, citing Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia. “This preserves President Trump the right to remedy the fraud with his own electors.”
“This isn’t over yet,” he adds.
On December 14, Trump adviser Stephen Miller announced on Fox News that Trump electors in some states will be voting and sending their results to Congress.
According to The Washington Post, Congress will meet in a joint session on January 6 to count the votes after the electors meet and their votes are received in Washington, D.C.
“On that day, states will be read out in alphabetical order. The state’s electoral votes will be opened and tallied,” the newspaper reported. “If one member of the House and one member of the Senate object to a state’s slate, though, it can be challenged.”
Walker Has a Large Social Media Following & Is Known for His Pro-Trump Rhetoric
He identifies himself as a “Free-Speech Radicalist” and owns a conservative blog called The Christian Walker. In his writings and social media posts, Walker frequently criticizes the Black Lives Matter movement and the Democratic Party.
His father, Herschel Walker, is also a supporter of the president. The former NFL running back spoke in support of Trump on the eve of the Republican National Convention and their 37-year-long friendship, according to The Independent.
Walker said Trump “shows how much he cares about social justice in the Black community through his actions, and his actions speak louder than stickers and slogans on a jersey,” the outlet reported.
Christian Walker later tweeted in support of his dad’s speech, writing:
My dad Herschel Walker, a southern black man from Georgia, is the greatest testament to President Trump’s character and to the fact that he is the furthest thing from a racist.
