Trump claims Youngkin win is proof of election fraud in lengthy radio rant

Donald Trump has already been claiming credit for Glenn Youngkin's election win in Virginia, and now he's saying that proves his own loss was due to fraud.

The twice-impeached one-term president spoke Wednesday morning with right-wing radio host John Fredericks, and he devolved into a lengthy and baseless rant about election fraud.

"We have a very corrupt election process in this country, and I've exposed that," the former president said. "We've exposed that, and I've further exposed the fake news for being corrupt, which I'm very proud of."

Fredericks, who was Trump's campaign chairman in Virginia in 2016 and 2020, asked how Youngkin could have eked out a 2-percent win a year after the former president lost re-election there by 10 percent.

"Yeah, I don't believe there we lost that, I don't believe we lost Virginia," Trump said, "and I think I can get away with murder in Fairfax, but there were too many eyes on it. You know, when I ran it was it was one of 50 states and other areas, okay -- the islands, places nobody ever heard of. What a mess, what a mess, this election process. Now I don't believe it. They said Virginia's blue, I never believed it was blue."

"All these people that turned out last night -- look, without MAGA, he would have lost by 15 points," Trump added. "More, I think more than that."
