Trump Alleges Voter Fraud In U.S Poll

President-elect Donald Trump has taken  to his twitter handle on Sunday to make an unsubstantiated claim that “millions of people” had cast their ballots illegally in the just concluded U.S election.

Recall that the Republican Billionaire, Trump had defeated his rival, Hillary Clinton in the last Presidential election, although, with the Democratic candidate (Hillary Clinton) winning popular votes. On Sunday, Trump reacted by saying that he would have won the popular vote were it not for the “millions of people who voted illegally.

This latest outburst by Trump came against the backdrop of steps being taken towards recounting votes in the state of Wisconsin, which Trump won.The recount was requested by Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who received a minute fraction of the total vote in Wisconsin.

Report has it that Trump and his aides have pushed back hard against that recount, with the president-elect letting loose a series of early-morning tweets in which he quoted Clinton about the need to respect the electoral process.

Trump alleged on twitter that: “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.”

Although Trump had warned before the election that the result might be “rigged,” he had offered no such complaint after his unexpected November 8 victory –until now.

Trump,back, after  spending the Thanksgiving holiday at his Florida Mar-a-Lago resort with his family, also took to Twitter, alleging that voter fraud had occurred in several states.

“Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California – so why isn’t the media reporting on this? Serious bias – big problem!” Trump posted.

Trump and his aides have offered no evidence concerning the claims, nor did Trump explain why he would oppose the nascent Wisconsin recount if illegal voting was such a serious problem.
