Eric Trump tweeted a phone number believed to be the place to report voting anomalies – but all callers received were just some of the president’s old campaign speeches about the email scandal Hillary Clinton.
“PLEASE HELP STOP SUPPORT VOTER, IRREGULARITIES AND FRAUD,” reads the red, white and blue image, tweeted just after 9am on Friday.
“TELL US WHAT YOU’RE WATCHING,” pictured by Donald Trump Jr. Re-post, beg for phone number and web address to report fraud, this has yet to be proven reality.
But when dialing the number, no one answered. Instead, a round of Trump election speeches is repeated over and over, and many of them appear to be from 2016.
“The only person who can stop this corrupt machine is you,” the recording was about 10 minutes long after a controversy about former Secretary Clinton emails.
“This will be our last chance to save it on November 8,” it went on to mention Election Day 2016.
After 16 minutes of various Trump speeches, a robot operator cut off the call.
“I’m sorry, there was an internal error,” said the operator.
“You will be disconnected now, bye,” it continued before the line ended.
About three hours later at around 12:30, Eric Trump’s tweet was suddenly deleted and replaced with a new, identical image saved for the phone number.
When the new number was called, a computer operator said “thank you for calling Donald J. Trump’s war room, please wait for the next representative.”
The campaign speeches were then re-played but after about a minute, a representative responded and confirmed that they had accepted the allegations of voter fraud.
The original line, which had 1-7-7-6 being the last four, was disconnected for a short while but only after 1pm, it was revived. However, no one answered.
After more than five minutes of four-year-old campaign speeches, a recorded message read “Thank you for calling Trump’s national war room. At the tone, please leave a message ”.
Eric Trump’s photo also includes a web address, going to a more formal “Vote Fraud Reporting Form” on Formstack. It asks people to provide their personal contact information, their specific status and location where they are believed to have witnessed fraud.
The form included a field where people could upload visual or video evidence of the anomaly that could be used to reinforce the Trump campaign’s repeated, unfounded assertions of fraud, but practically impossible to upload anything.
The website says in gray text: “Uploading of files has been disabled for this form.”
Around 1 p.m., the form was fixed to allow file upload.
Earlier on Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden took the lead in Pennsylvania, consolidating his bid for the White House.
Meanwhile, Trump’s campaign continues to lament the issues of unfounded voting and has brought a series of lawsuits across the country about the cessation of vote count, many cases brought by judges. .
