‘Why Did He Write the Report?’: Trump Gets Into Testy Exchange With ABC’s David Muir on Voter Fraud Claims


President Donald Trump is continuing his claims alleging widespread voter fraud, despite offering no concrete supporting evidence to back his position.

During an interview with ABC’s David Muir which is set to air during Wednesday’s edition of ABC World News, the President and the anchor got into a testy back-and-forth over Trump’s citation of a Pew report on voter fraud. Muir noted that the author of the report said he found no evidence of voter fraud. Trump accused him of “groveling.”

Muir: You say you’re going to launch an investigation into (voter fraud).

Trump: Sure. Done.

What you have presented so far has been debunked. It’s been called false —

No it hasn’t. Take a look at the Pew report.

I called the author of the Pew report last night. He told me they found no evidence of voter fraud.

Really? Then why did he write the report?

He said no evidence of voter fraud.

Excuse me. Then why did he write the report? Look at the Pew Report. Then he’s groveling again. You know, I always talk about the reporters that grovel when they wanna write something you wanna hear. But not necessarily millions of people want to hear, or have to hear

In the interview, Trump mentioned people who are registered to vote in multiple states. Through reporting today, it has come to light that Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon, Trump’s Secretary of the Treasury nominee Steven Mnuchin, and Trump’s daughter Tiffany Trump are all registered to vote in two states.
