The Whitehouse has stated United States president Donald Trump’s belief that millions of people voted illegally in the 201g presidential election is based on “studies and evidence.”
It’s well-founded Trump lost the popular vote to main election rival Hillary Clinton despite taking the Electoral College, and Whitehouse press secretary Sean Spicer confirmed Trump maintains there is foundation behind the president’s claims, per BBC News:
“He continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence that people have presented to him.”
Despite Spicer’s claims backing up previous suggestions made by Trump over Twitter and in interviews, there was no new evidence presented to actually prove allegations of fraud.
In fact, BBC News’ report said there has been no concrete proof of suspicious ballots, least of which in the millions of people, adding election officials “have said they found no proof of fraudulent voting.”
