During a segment on CNN this afternoon, host Jake Tapper had to correct Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump over a tweet he sent out saying CNN was reporting there were problems with voting machines across the country.
Minutes earlier, Trump sent out the following tweet:
Just out according to @CNN: "Utah officials report voting machine problems across entire country"
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 8, 2016
However, that isn’t what happened, as Tapper explained.
“In point of fact, CNN is not reporting that,” Tapper stated. “The problem is problems across the county, a county, not the country, as Mr. Trump tweeted.”
“The difference of an R, but kind of an important one,” Tapper continued.
