South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem called on the country “for 70.6 million Americans who voted for President Trump the same considerations” to give former vice-president Al Gore in the 2000 legal war lead to the Supreme Court decision and George W. Bush triumphed.
In a Sunday interview on ABC’s “This Week,” the Republican governor argued that President Trump should be allowed to “his day in court”, pointing to Gore’s 37-day legal effort to challenge the outcome of an election too close to call on Election Night. .

“What I think is happening here, George, is that it’s all too early. This is too early a conversation because we haven’t finished counting votes yet,” Noem said. “There are states that have not been called, and back in 2000, Al Gore was taken to court. We should give President Trump a day in court.”
Host George Stephanopolous pointed out that despite the president’s assertions of misconduct at polls, Republican officials have “failed to present any evidence of rampant fraud. “.
Noem rejected his claim as “completely untrue” and urged voters to let the legal process unfold.
“People have signed legal documents, affidavits saying they see illegal activities,” she argued. “And that’s why we need this conversation in court. It was the New York Times that said there was a clerical error.”
Noem gave the example of a flaw in a Michigan county where thousands of Trump’s votes were counted for Democratic President-elect Joe Biden.
“If you look at what happened in Michigan, we had a computer problem that changed the Republican vote to the Democrat vote,” she explained. “You look in Pennsylvania, the dead people voted in Pennsylvania. So George, I don’t know how popular it is. I don’t know if it will change the outcome of the election. But why?” Are people scared again when there’s a fair election and find out? “
Noem once again mentioned that the battle of the November 7, 2000 presidential election in Florida was finally over when the senior court ruled the following month that Bush defeated Gore in the state with only 537 votes out of nearly 6 million votes.

“We gave Al Gore 37 days to go through the process before deciding who would become president,” she said. “Why don’t we give the same consideration to the 70.6 million Americans who voted for President Trump?”
“All I ask, George, is we don’t break this country,” concludes Noem and warns, “When you break your process of electing leaders, you break the country. America forever. “
