Recorded on 11/17/20, Steve Adubato is joined by Senator Michael Doherty (R) – NJ, 23rd Legislative District, to talk about election integrity issues in NJ and the country, President Trump contesting the 2020 Presidential Election, and his belief that systemic racism does not exist in the U.S. political system.
Senator Doherty believes there have been election integrity issues around the country and that it’s a major problem. He says from the day that President Donald Trump was elected, there was resistance, similar to the way resistance was shown in electing Joe Biden in 2020.
Senator Doherty has called systemic racism “an evil lie.” He explains, “This is a country, a majority-white country, that elected Barak Obama [as] President twice. Now, if we had a systemically racist country, a man who grew up not even having his father around most of the time, could become president of the United States, and be elected and re-elected. By a country that’s majority white, how can there be systemic racism? He adds, “This is an evil lie that’s been perpetrated. There’s bad people, but the system is not systemically racist.”
He says there isn’t much that gives him optimism moving forward because the United States is a very divided country right now. Senator Doherty adds, “We have corruption everywhere in the United States. Just look at the idea of flash trading…the country can rally around that, let’s stop the criminals on Wall Street for ripping us off.”
Senator Doherty says he supported President Trump on the issues of selling out to China, sending our jobs oversees, the average American worker making less than $30,000, and the foreign wars that are taking our young people. He says Donald Trump deserves a pat on the back for not starting another foreign war. He says, “I think once you’re President, you don’t need to use a sledgehammer to communicate. People are going to listen to you when you start talking because you’re president.”
