What is the Trump campaign claiming?
The President’s spokeswoman cited allegations of voting corruption. She urged reporters to help investigate the claims. Fox News cut away from the event, mentioning the lack of evidence.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa,” said presenter Neil Cavuto. “Unless she [Ms. McEnany] has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continue to show you this.”
Ms. McEnany told reporters: “We have only begun the process of obtaining an accurate, honest vote count.”
She claimed Republican poll watchers had not been granted adequate access to voting counts in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She also claimed that election officials in the key states had allowed a disproportionate number of Democrats to correct, or “cure”, inaccurately filled-out ballots.
Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said they had collected 131 affidavits, or signed legal statements under oath, in Michigan as part of their investigation into alleged election irregularities.
“If the shoe were on the other foot,” she said, “if it were this close the other way if President Trump was in the lead in all these states, and the media would be screaming, ‘This isn’t over’.”
