While the presidential election was going on in United States , President Donald Trump has posted more than 300 tweets attacking the integrity of the 2020 election which was later proved as a false claims. He is the only US president in the history to do these henious claims.
Just hours after polls closed Nov. 3, Trump began sowing mistrust in the vote counting process, as he tweeted ominously about “surprise ballot dumps,” “finding Biden votes” and “miraculously” disappearing leads.
What he was describing was simply vote counting. Election officials warned for months that counting ballots might take days or even weeks to complete, given the prevalence of absentee ballots this year. Studies and experts predicted that Trump could lead on election night in key states, but that his lead could be slowly eroded as officials continued to count mail-in ballots.
The president has objected to counting votes past Election Day, claiming at least twice that late-arriving ballots are “illegal.” But 23 states and Washington, D.C., accept mail-in ballots after Election Day if they are postmarked by a certain day.
False declarations of victory
Trump has repeatedly and falsely claimed to have “won” the election or predicted that he will win after recounts in Georgia and Arizona and lawsuit verdicts.
In reality, he has virtually no chance of winning, given the large margins held by President-elect Joe Biden in those states. Biden leads by 14,000 votes in Georgia and about 10,000 votes in Arizona — far more than even the largest margin to be recently overturned, several hundred votes in a 2008 Senate election in Minnesota.
Conversely, Trump has objected to news outlets and others declaring Biden the victor, asking, “Since when does the Lamestream Media call who our next president will be?”
A media call is not the same thing as certified results or the final Electoral College vote, but it’s worth noting that The Associated Press has called presidential elections since 1848, by combining reported vote tallies and “research including demographic data, voting history and statistics about advance voting.”
Baseless allegations of fraud and a stolen election
About two dozen of Trump’s tweets included broad allegations of “widespread voter fraud,” “illegal votes” and “a stolen election.” Election officials across the country told The New York Times that there was no evidence that irregularities affected the outcome of the election.
In a few instances, the president gave specific examples of what he suggested amounted to fraud, but those claims lacked context, were disputed or were flat-out wrong.
He claimed that military ballots in Georgia were “missing.” They were not, according to election officials in the state.
He posted a video of election officials gathering ballots and asked “is this what our Country has come to?” But the footage simply showed officials abiding by the legal process: collecting ballots from a drop box that had been locked by 8 p.m. on Election Day.
