Trump: Florida’s Ballots Are “Massively Infected”

NBC News reports:

President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that the Florida recount should be called in favor of Republicans Rick Scott for Senate and Ron DeSantis for governor because an “honest vote count is no longer possible.” The president, without offering any evidence, claimed ballots were “massively infected.”

Scott, the Florida governor who is running against incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, and DeSantis, the former GOP congressman running for governor against Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, both hold narrow leads. NBC has rated both contests as too close to call.
