President Donald Trump doubled his claim that the presidential election had been rigged, and the Democrats’ defeat in Sunday night’s vote proves it during a Twitter rant from the White House on Sunday night.
“The Democrats suffered a loss of defeat across America.” @New York Times. This is true, ”Trump wrote, referring to a New York Times article on Saturday that stated that suburban voters’ disgust for Trump, which was key to Joe Biden’s victory, did not lead to reprimands from other Republicans .
“All of the state houses won, and we did a great job in Washington. So I led this big charge and am I the only one who lost? No, that’s not how it works. This was a massive scam, a RIGGED CHOICE! ‘Trump added.
Trump’s tweet was quickly flagged as a “controversial” claim by Twitter.
Shortly after the election was scheduled in Biden’s favor, Trump’s team filed several lawsuits for electoral fraud in key states.

President Donald Trump doubled his claim that the presidential election was rigged in a Sunday night tweet from the White House

Earlier Sunday, in the first television interview since losing his re-election bid, Trump made similar claims of electoral fraud, stating that he would never give in to President-elect Biden and that he would give up his conspiracy theory on mass electoral fraud.
“It’s not like you change my mind. My mind won’t change in six months, “Trump told Fox News interviewer Maria Bartiromo.
‘That election was rigged. This election was a total fraud, ”he claimed again without showing any evidence. “We won the election easily.”
The 45-minute interview, Trump’s first on television since the November 3 elections, was largely a monologue of evidence-free allegations about electoral fraud that Bartiromo had virtually unchallenged.
Despite Trump’s unprecedented assault on the validity of the US electoral system, his legal team has yet to come to court with evidence.
Case-by-case was rejected by judges across the country. The latest denial came from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, which on Saturday denied a lawsuit by Trump supporters who wanted to challenge Biden’s victory in the state.
“We’re trying to bring in the evidence and the judges won’t allow us to do it,” Trump said. ‘We try it. We have so much evidence. ‘
Trump ignored the usual boundaries between his office and the justice and law enforcement system, complaining that the Department of Justice and the FBI were not helping him.

They are “missing in action,” he said, also questioning the Supreme Court’s point if it does not intervene.
‘We should be heard by the Supreme Court. There must be something in there. What else is the Supreme Court? ‘he asked.
The 2020 election was not particularly close. Biden won the electoral college vote – the state-to-state competition that decided the winner – 306-232.
In the referendum, which does not decide on the result, but is still politically and symbolically strong, Biden won 51 to 47 percent.
Traditionally, losers in US presidential elections admit almost immediately.
Regardless of whether Trump ever acknowledges defeat or not, the electoral college is sure to go through the formal applications for confirmation of Biden when it meets on December 14th and the Democrat is sworn in on the day of inauguration on January 20th.
Even when his term ran out, Trump declined to say on Fox News if he sees an expiration date for his unsuccessful legal campaign.
“I’m not going to say a date,” he said. When asked if he saw a way to win, he said, “I hope so.”
Trump also had a few words for Chris Krebs, who appeared in the 60-minute interview on Sunday night.
During the segment, Krebs, the US government’s senior cybersecurity officer, said Trump and Rudy Giuliani’s allegations of election fraud are intended to “scare people”, adding that the “evidence is on the ballot” and that Americans should be reassured.
Cancer, a lifelong Republican, was fired from Trump in a tweet on Nov. 17 after calling the election “the safest in American history”.
The President was upset with Krebs’ confirmation of the vote and he was further upset with his 60-minute interview.

“. @ 60Minutes never asked us for comment on their ridiculous, one-sided story about election security, which is an international joke,” Trump tweeted immediately after the segment aired.
“Our 2020 election, from a poorly rated Dominion to a country that ignored mail-in ballots, was probably our least secure choice!”
The president continued his Twitter tirade, insisting he had a chance to win the Georgia election, and insisting he couldn’t have lost because it attracted large crowds.
However, Krebs insisted that the election was indeed the safest ever, saying Trump and Giuliani’s proposals were otherwise “dangerous”.
“I think we should celebrate the successes of making the 2020 elections the safest elections in modern history,” said Krebs.
“I think the administration deserves recognition. I think President Trump’s administration deserves credit for securing the 2020 elections. ‘
He said the press conference held by Giuliani and his colleagues at the Republican National Committee headquarters last week made him sad and angry.
“It was annoying because I saw an obvious attempt to undermine confidence in the elections, to confuse people, to frighten people,” said Krebs.
“It’s not me, it’s not just CISA. There are tens of thousands of election workers out there who have worked 18-hour days without a break for months. They’re getting death threats for trying to have one of our core democratic institutions, an election.
“And that was another press conference for me, which I just – it didn’t make any sense.
“What it was actively doing was undermining democracy. And that’s dangerous. ‘
