Trump appears to confess that he has no proof of widespread electoral fraud

Two weeks after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election, Donald Trump still has no evidence that widespread electoral fraud is the cause of his humiliating loss.

In two tweets on Saturday morning – this is the only way the country will hear from the president now – Trump told his supporters that evidence will “come” every day.

“Massive election fraud is shown!” Exclaimed Trump in a retweet of a statement from a Michigan election official.

In a retweet of a statement from Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, Trump said, “We are going to show massive and unprecedented fraud!”

This is true, but very different from what the media reported. We will show massive and unprecedented scams! https://t.co/E1gZiqc7EP

In other words, Trump and his henchmen like Rudy Giuliani currently have no evidence, but they claim they will have it every day.

As Nate Cohn said of Trump’s tweets on Saturday, “The time here is relatively clear confirmation of the current state of the evidence.”

The American people have seen this movie before

When it comes to Donald Trump promising to reveal explosive news, Americans have seen this movie before.

This stunt dates back to Barack Obama’s years when Trump claimed his investigators found shocking details that Obama was not born in the United States. Of course, he didn’t find or show any.

Whether it’s his tax returns or a health plan, Trump has always talked about releasing them without ever doing it.

Now, having lost the election decisively to Joe Biden, Trump is up to his usual tricks to avoid responsibility for his defeat and prepare for a 2024 election campaign.

Despite testimony from Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani or any of his other second-rate lawyers, there is no evidence that widespread electoral fraud is the reason Joe Biden will be sworn in on January 20, 2021.
