President Donald Trump continued to spout his conspiracy theory that 3 million people voted illegally in the 2016 election. The president made the remark during a West Virginia stop in which he was supposed to discuss the GOP’s tax law.
“Not a conspiracy theory,” Trump claimed of the conspiracy theory that has been debunked over and over.
“He’s looking at this with a simple perspective,” Mudd began. “Being the liar-in-chief works. It’s worked from day one. You open a campaign saying ‘The president, the former president isn’t really an American citizen’. People still believe that in this country.”
Mudd also recalled that within the first 24 to 48 hours of being in the White House, Trump demanded the staff invent the size of his inauguration audience.
“‘The media’s on me, they’re misrepresenting how many people showed up at my inauguration.’ That was a lie,” Mudd continued. “Governors across the country said we’re not participating in this sham of a way to determine whether more people vote in the election illegally. That’s a joke. People still believe that. The president talked about that in the last day or so.”
