The Hill reports:
Former national security adviser John Bolton said on Sunday that Republican leaders need to explain to voters that President Trump has lost the election, even though the president has yet to concede.
Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” Bolton was asked by host Martha Raddatz what could be done to convince Trump voters that President-elect Joe Biden had won the election legitimately and fairly.
“I think it’s very important for leaders in the Republican Party to explain to our voters, who are not as stupid as the Democrats think, that, in fact, Trump has lost the election and that his claims of election fraud are baseless,” said Bolton.
