Stand Up America: Trump's Efforts To Undermine Election Show He's An Existential Threat


In response to Donald Trump once again lying about voter fraud and suggesting delaying November's presidential election, Stand Up America Founder and President Sean Eldridge issued the following statement:

"As his latest comments show, Trump poses an existential threat to our democracy. While he has no authority to delay the election, we cannot ignore his escalating lies and attacks on our democracy.

"Americans need to be ready to mobilize if Trump contests the results or refuses to concede--and 'Protect the Results' is building a network of millions of Americans to meet the moment if we need to take to the streets in protest."

Stand Up America is a progressive advocacy organization with over two million community members across the country. Focused on grassroots advocacy to strengthen our democracy and oppose Trump's corrupt agenda, Stand Up America has driven over 600,000 phone calls to Congress and mobilized tens of thousands of protestors across the country.
