As I See It
Trump still screaming voter fraud
Donald Trump just can’t seem to get over the fact that he lost the popular vote. Not that it matters of course, since we elect Presidents through the Electoral College. But still Trump won’t let it go. In fact, he is doubling down on his assertion that the only reason he lost the popular vote is because the election was rigged. The President now claims he will launch a major investigation into voter fraud. He alleges some may have voted in more than one state, that illegals cast ballots, and that even dead people were voting. Of course, Trump can’t provide any evidence of his claim, perhaps because it is an alternative fact. The election wasn’t rigged. He didn’t lose the popular vote because some 5 million illegal aliens cast ballots for Hillary Clinton. In Wisconsin, a statewide recount of the presidential election was conducted, and found zero evidence of voter fraud. Still, Trump suggests he wants to make it harder to vote because of this supposed fraud. Trump claimed the election was rigged during the campaign. But saying it as President is different. It undermines confidence in our democracy. It impugns those hardworking election officials throughout the country who work hard to ensure every legally cast ballot is counted. Someone should remind Trump that he was duly elected, and is now our Commander-in-Chief, no matter the outcome of the popular vote.
