After working to undermine the legitimacy of the press and the Mueller investigation, President Trump is now targeting the electoral process as insurance against possible Republican losses in too-close-to-call races in Florida and Arizona.
Why it matters: The president is doing more than any top official in memory to cast doubt on the outcomes of elections.
On Arizona, Trump tweeted: “Just out — in Arizona, SIGNATURES DON’T MATCH. Electoral corruption – Call for a new Election? We must protect our Democracy!”
The AP reports: “There is zero evidence of anything unusual going on in the Arizona vote-counting — and no elected Republican officials in the state have cried foul.”
