It was certainly quite a speech, indeed
The sitting US president publicly blasted the nation's electoral process as having allowed, "fraud and abuse to occur on a scale never seen before".
To my American journalist colleagues: that's news.
Countless top American journalists refused to report on it. I'll pass on a couple highlights:
"A s president I have no higher duty than to defend the laws and the constitution of the United States," said Trump, relating a political fact. "That is why I'm determined to protect our election system, which is now under coordinated assault and siege," said Trump, making a claim for which he'll have to provide overwhelming evidence, and quickly. "This is not just about honouring the votes of 74 million Americans who voted for me - it's about ensuring that Americans can have faith in this election and in all future elections," said Trump, in a statement which is seen in America as either patriotism or shameless partisan duplicity.
Trump listed a litany of alleged offences made across the country and claimed to have massive amounts of evidence to support him - these claims will have to be decided in court, definitively. Initially, however, they are decided in the court of public opinion.
However, the problem here is that US corporate media (and the tiny amount of state media) was so flagrantly biased against Trump's speech that we probably can't find 12 untainted people to fill a jury for one the many, many trials Trump seems to demand.
"Acting crazy", "Propaganda", "My God, He's Completely Insane" - this all journalistically-false but very real headlines from the very top US media. This is truly treatment reserved for foreign leaders who are currently threatening war on your country, not your own president.
