Utah Senator Mitt Romney has not seen eye-to-eye with President Donald Trump for years, and his latest rant against his supporters comes at a critical juncture in our nation’s history.
The President has consistently insisted that he did indeed win the 2020 election, despite the fact that the Associated Press has called the contest in favor of Joe Biden, as the journalistic organization has done in the United States since 1848.
Trump and his legal team believe that there is widespread evidence of voter fraud in the results of the election, and they’re working to bring a legal case based on those accusations as we speak.
But there isn’t too much faith in the process among those on Capitol Hill, with only a few of the President’s most ardent supporters willing to face the media and exude their belief in the prospect of Trump being reelected.
Of those who’ve shown hostility toward the President, almost none share his opinion on the subject. Mitt Romney is no exception here.
Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Thursday on “The Axe Files” podcast that President Donald Trump’s claims of voter fraud seem dubious because “the president said before the election that if he were to lose, it would be because of voter fraud.”
Romney said, “At this stage, we haven’t heard any evidence of a widespread voter fraud effort that would result in a change in the outcome of the election.”
Then came Romney’s subtle insult aimed at those who support the President.
Host David Axelrod said, “The place where the allegations are being made are mostly the president’s Twitter feed.”
Romney said, “I’m surprised that there are as many people as you say that give it credibility even within our own country because the president said before the election that if he were to lose, it would be because of voter fraud, it would be because of corruption. And then a day or two after the election, when the vote was called by the major networks, he indicated that there was massive fraud and that he had been robbed of the victory and that was before any evidence has been gathered.”
Rudy Giuliani hosted a press conference on Thursday hoping to outline the Trump legal team’s plan to move ahead with their litigious efforts, citing their alleged evidence of widespread voter fraud and a vast conspiracy to “steal” the election.
