President Donald Trump contradicted himself in a statement he made on Twitter about the nation’s electoral security.
“For years the Dems have been preaching how insecure and rigged our elections were, ”wrote the president, a reference to the Democrats’ demands to increase election security after cyber attacks by foreign opponents.
“Now they say what a wonderful job the Trump administration has done to make 2020 the safest election ever, ”he continued. “Actually, that’s true, except for what the Democrats did. Manipulated elections! “

The president has been hovering in conspiracy for the past few days Theories about voting machine irregularities caused by both a New York Times Investigation and an explanation of The Federal Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) said the 2020 election was “the most secure in American history”.
Many have asked the president to admit. His refusal has opened him to criticism from both sides of the aisle.
Many of the president’s tweets have also been flagged under Twitter’s Citizen Integrity Policy, which prohibits individuals from spreading unchecked disinformation about the elections.
More Republicans broke away from the president as his claims of election fraud stalled both online and in court, where his fraud charges were dismissed.
Earlier today news agencies reported about it Porter Wright Morris & Arthur, a law firm in Pittsburgh, pulled out of the president’s lawsuit and tried to block the Pennsylvania referendum from President-elect Joe Biden.
“Plaintiffs and Porter Wright have mutually agreed that plaintiffs will be best served if Porter Wright resigns, and the current co-counsel and other attorneys whom plaintiffs may appoint to represent plaintiffs in this case. Plaintiffs are in the process of keeping other lawyers and getting them to appear here, ”wrote attorneys Ronald Hicks and Carolyn McGee.
President Trump has not appeared in public for several days and has largely confiscated himself in the White House and made comments via tweet.
There was no doubt that Trump would deny the election results, the behavior that brought criticism of President Barack Obama to him and the Republicans, for the “damage” he did to the democratic process. Trump also questioned the integrity of the 2016 general election, which he actually won.
