Lindsey Graham on Trump’s voter fraud claims: Show us the evidence or shut up

This Tuesday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called on President Donald Trump to abandon his false claim that he lost the popular vote due to voter fraud.

Graham affirmed that there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud and asked Trump to accept the truth.

“So I am begging the president, share with us the information you have about this or please stop saying it,” Graham said.

“As a matter of fact, I’d like you do more than stop saying it, I’d like you to come forward and say, ‘Having looked at it, I am confident the election was fair and accurate and people who voted voted legally.’ Because if he doesn’t do that, this is going to undermine his ability to govern this country.”

NBC’s Frank Thorp posted Graham’s full comments on the matter to Twitter:

This Monday, Trump resurrected a claim he made just after the election where he said that “millions of people” illegally voted against him.

“To continue to suggest that the 2016 election was conducted in a fashion that millions of people voted illegally undermines faith in our democracy,” Graham said. “It’s not coming from a candidate for the office, it’s coming from the man who holds the office.”

Fact-checkers and politicians from both sides dispute the claim. Trump has provided no evidence to support his allegation.
