(CNN) – For the first time, President Donald Trump on Sunday morning acknowledged the victory of President-elect Joe Biden while falsely blaming his defeat on a host of conspiracy theories.
“He won because the election was rigged. NO WITNESSES OR VOTE WATCHERS ALLOWED, vote tabulated by radical left private firm Dominion with a bad reputation and shoddy team that couldn’t even qualify for Texas (which I won by big!), The fake media and in silence, & more! » tweeted Trump on Sunday morning.
Election observers were allowed during vote counting across the country, and a CNN fact check earlier found that there is no evidence that problems associated with Dominion Voting Systems, which makes software, caused widespread errors in the count.RELATED
Trump says “I don’t recognize ANYTHING” and calls it a “rigged election”
Soon after, President Trump repeated his false belief that he can win the election. Regarding your earlier post in which you said Joe Biden had won but it was because it was a rigged election, Trump tweeted: “He only won in the eyes of the FAKE NEWS MEDIA.” I do not recognize ANYTHING! We have a long way to go. This was a GREAT CHOICE! “
He then promised – falsely claiming again that it was a “rigged election” and ignoring the fact that Biden is projected to win 306 Electoral Votes – “RIGGED ELECTION.” WE WILL WIN!”
