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.”

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace erupts over GOP attempt to question Vindman’s loyalty: ‘I’m constantly shocked by the bottomlessness’
During a roundtable discussion on MSNBC this Tuesday, host Nicolle Wallace slammed Republicans' apparent attempts to call into question Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman's patriotism during his testimony in the House impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
"This is the smear campaign against Lt. Col. Vindman," Wallace said. "It is active, it is live, and today it spilled out in this public hearing."
"I am constantly shocked by the bottomlessness of the Republicans' cravennesses in trying to defend Donald Trump," she said later in the segment. "This is an active duty military person sitting there in his uniform talking about his story, but it does not put any brakes in the system on a line of questioning clearly intended to insinuate that he has duel loyalties."
Trump mounts sexist attack on Pelosi during impeachment hearing: ‘I think the woman is grossly incompetent’
President Donald Trump attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from the White House on Tuesday.
As impeachment testimony was underway in the House, Trump told reporters in a Cabinet meeting that Pelosi is "grossly incompetent."
The president also said that Republicans are "killing it" in the impeachment hearings.
But Trump took a shot at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, an expert on Ukraine who was testifying at the time.
"I don't know him. ... I never saw the man," he said. "I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don't know Vindman at all. What I do know is that even he said that the transcript was correct."
‘You ran out of a book signing!’ Donald Trump Jr torn to shreds for questioning Vindman’s heroism
Donald Trump Jr. questioned the military service of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, and was sprayed with venom.
The president's eldest son posted a link to a Federalist article suggesting Vindman is not a dedicated military officer and public servant, a line of questioning which Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) also pursued during an impeachment hearing.
"Let’s Stop Pretending Every Impeachment Witness Is A Selfless Hero," Trump Jr. tweeted, quoting the piece's headline.
