Donald Trump insists on fraud in US presidential elections.

Dominion Voting Systems is a Canadian company founded in 2003 and whose US headquarters are located in Denver, in the central state of Colorado.

Specializing in voting technology, it provides local authorities with the machines and associated software that many Americans use to vote.

According to a study by the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, its technology was related to more than 71 million American voters in the elections 2016 in 1,635 locations.

This makes it the second largest provider in the country, behind Election Systems & Software.

Trump tweeted last Thursday information from the conservative One America News Network (Oann) that claimed that Dominion software had “erased 2.7 million votes from Trump across the country,” and that hundreds of thousands of votes destined for him had been reassigned to his rival, Joe Biden, in states that use Dominion’s technology.

Since then, his supporters rely on this “information” to attest to the electoral fraud on a large scale that they denounce without any concrete proof.

Starting with the president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, who said Sunday on another conservative channel, Fox News, that Dominion was “a radical left-wing company.”

A foreign company, which has very close ties with Venezuela, and therefore with China, and which uses software from a Venezuelan company that has been used to steal elections in other countriesGiuliani said, among other accusations with conspiratorial overtones.

Oann has not posted his story on Dominion, which Trump mentioned on Twitter Thursday, online.

The station chief indicated in an email to CNN that he would appear in a large-format investigation that would be broadcast on November 21 and 22, without specifying the evidence on which it was based.

Dominion Voting Systems in a press release rejected any flaws in its software.

He referred to “human errors” in the data processing of “certain counties”, particularly Michigan (north), but ensures that these isolated incidents were resolved quickly.

Several local and national electoral authorities, including the Cyber ​​Security and Infrastructure Agency (Cisa), which is part of the Department of National Security, ruled out on Thursday the possibility of manipulation of votes through machines.

“There is no evidence of any electoral system that has erased, lost or changed votes, or that has been hacked in any way,” they said in a joint statement.

Trump tosses the tie during a campaign rally in Iowa

| 17/10/2020 – 6:35am (GMT-4)

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, held a massive campaign event on Friday in the city of Des Moines, in the state of Iowa, during which he took off his tie to the applause of his followers.

As soon as he got on stage, Trump put on a red cap with the slogan “Make America Great Again” and then asked his fans: “Should I take off my tie or not? What do you think? ? “

“I do not know, maybe yes?”. Trump continued before the crowd gathered at the local International Airport. The president then loosened his red tie and tossed it to the side of the stage.

“This way I feel much better. Now we can all relax and have a good time,” said Trump, who continued his speech without his traditional garment.

His campaign rally kept the same script as the previous ones, with attacks on his Democratic rival Joe Biden.

“I ran for president because I couldn’t sit still, watching the terrible injustices being done against the American people … I can’t just stand by and watch career politicians like Joe Biden continue to bleed this country to death.”

If something stands out in Donald Trump’s outfit, it’s the garish red ties that he usually wears. He even wore it on the day of his inauguration as president of the United States. Although throughout the campaign we have also seen him with a blue tie, and even with other patterns, red has been the dominant color. A choice that, according to some commentators, is not simply aesthetic.

Red is a color traditionally associated with strength and passion. By electing him, Trump wants to convey a message of strength and leadership. Especially if it is a blood red. Whoever chooses a tie of that color is trying to convey the message that he is a confident person and with whom he can maintain a relationship of trust.

Image analysts and publicists say that red ties are preferred by leaders and politicians who want to convey an image of authority, while blue would be more appropriate for the business world, as it could help establish good relationships.

The call power tie The one Trump leans toward is a classic ’80s model and the color is associated with Republicans. Also, do not forget that it is a product of its own brand, manufactured, by the way, in China.

The one from Iowa has been the third rally that the Republican candidate has held after being diagnosed with COVID-19.

Last week, Trump was forced to take a campaign break to recover from his illness. and spent 72 hours admitted to the military hospital “Walter Reed”, outside of Washington.
