President Donald Trump on Tuesday night sent out a 14-minute long video on Facebook declaring the election had been stolen from him leaning in favor of Joe Biden because of “monstrous fraud.”
“The truth is: We won the election by a landslide, we won it big,” Trump said in his video.
“None of this should ever have been allowed to happen in the United States of America,” said Trump. “The rigging of the 2020 election was only the final step in the Democrats’ and the media’s years-long effort to overthrow the will of the American people and destroy our movement by any means possible.”
President Trump said he was leading the election by “several hundreds of thousands of votes” by midnight on election night, but that soon faded.
Trump stated that he was ahead in several key battleground states like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, and Biden would not have been able to catch up to him.
The following morning, the states were starting to swing the other way, Biden stated to take the lead in states that Trump was leading in the night before. For example, President Trump stated that at 6:31 a.m., Michigan had a sudden boost of votes that went more than 90% for Biden, and soon after that, other states started reporting that the former vice president was winning.
“These gigantic and ridiculously one-sided spikes were miraculously just enough to push Joe Biden into the lead in all of the key swing states,” Trump stated.
