Trump responds to Arizona election audit results
Former President Donald Trump had some choice words for the news media after the 2020 election audit in Arizona confirmed President Joe Biden’s victory in Arizona’s largest county and showed Trump received fewer votes than previously counted.
Trump issued a statement through his Save America PAC, calling the report a bombshell that “uncovered significant and undeniable evidence of FRAUD.”
“Huge findings in Arizona! However, the Fake News Media is already trying to ‘call it’ again for Biden before actually looking at the facts—just like they did in November!” Trump said.
“This is a major criminal event and should be investigated by the Attorney General immediately,” he added.
The GOP-led state Senate initiated the forensic audit of the election in Maricopa county after Trump became the first Republican presidential candidate to lose the state since 1996.
The audit, led by the Florida-based firm Cyber Ninjas, found that Biden won 99 more votes while Trump lost 261 votes compared to the certified ballot count last year.
