Late on Sunday night, President Donald Trump tweeted that “there were more votes than people who voted” in key swing states. Because of this, he insists that he won the 2020 presidential election.
“In certain swing states, there were more votes than people who voted, and in big numbers. Does that not really matter?” the president wrote on Twitter. “Stopping Poll Watchers, voting for unsuspecting people, fake ballots, and so much more. Such egregious conduct. We will win!”
In another tweet, Trump cited a Breitbart piece that details how his “Anti-Globalism, Pro-Police Message” led to him gaining more Hispanic support and added, “Great, but we also won the election!”
According to the Breitbart story, the president improved his margins compared to the 2016 election in 78 counties out of the nation’s 100 Hispanic-majority counties.
Twitter tagged both tweets with warning labels, the first with a message stating, “This claim about election fraud is disputed.” In contrast, the second one reads, “Multiple sources called this election differently.”
Trump has claimed more than once that he won the election. His campaign and legal team continue to challenge several states’ results, alleging widespread voter fraud is responsible for the Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s win.
Though most news outlets have called Biden’s election, Newsmax has not, citing close races and ongoing legal challenges. After the state officially certified the results, Newsmax called Georgia for the former vice president.
