Charles Krauthammer said on Fox tonight that President Trump‘s unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud go to an issue of character.

Bret Baier admitted he can’t quite figure out why Trump would be questioning the legitimacy of an election he won––and succeeded in defying the odds in––unless it’s part of a strategy.

Krauthammer said, “I don’t think it’s a strategy, this is a character problem. He defines himself as a winner.”

He argued that Trump considers the fact he lost the popular vote as “a slight to his image” as the guy who wins everything, hence why he brings up things like the crowd size at the inauguration and his TV ratings.
