The Hill reports:
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday defended President Trump’s claims about widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election and argued that the administration has no evidence to back-up the claims because states have refused to cooperate with a federal review.
“The president still strongly feels there was a large amount of voter fraud and attempted to do a thorough review of it. A lot of the states didn’t want to cooperate and participate,” Sanders said.
“We certainly know there were a large number of incidents reported but we can’t be sure exactly how much because we weren’t able to conduct the full review hat the president wanted because a number of states didn’t want to cooperate and refused to participate.”
Press Sec. Sanders says Pres. Trump “still strongly feels that there was a large amount of voter fraud.”
