Trump Makes Wild, Baseless Voter Fraud Claim: People ‘Go to Their Car,’ Change Their Hat and Shirt, and ‘Vote Again’
In an interview with the Daily Caller on Wednesday afternoon, President Donald Trump continued to float baseless conspiracy theories regarding the recounts currently ongoing in Florida.
Trump baselessly complained that Republicans “don’t win and that’s because of potentially illegal votes.”
The president didn’t stop there, also accusing individuals of voting multiple times.
“Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again,” Trump said, without providing a single shred of evidence for the explosive claim. “It’s really a disgrace what’s going on.”
Trump seized on the moment, using it to renew his push for national voter ID laws.
“If you buy a box of cereal — you have a voter ID,” he said. “They try to shame everybody by calling them racist or calling them something, anything they can think of, when you say you want voter ID.”
Despite the president’s claims, election monitors in Broward County, FL have found no evidence of the sort.
“Our staff has seen no evidence of criminal activity at this time,” Sarah Revell, a spokesperson for the Florida Department of Elections, told the Miami Herald.
