Donald Trump on Monday railed against the Arizona election process, claiming that “the great Kari Lake’s easy election win is slowly, yet systematically, being drained away from her” in the governor’s race because votes are still being counted in the state.
“I assume everyone is watching Arizona as the great Kari Lake’s easy election win is slowly, yet systematically, being drained away from her, and from the American people,” the former president wrote on Truth Social. “This is a very sad thing to watch. Mail in Ballots, long election counts, many day elections, machines that very few people understand, massive counting centers, and more, are an American disaster. Our elections have become an unreliable joke, and the whole world is watching!”
In a second post, he wrote: “Even Jimmy Carter, in his and other highly respected pol’s and professional’s Report, said Mail-In Ballots cannot be trusted. There will be massive cheating. A ten year old child would understand that. When will Republicans learn? If they don’t stop this mail-in SCAM now, there won’t be any Republicans left.”
He then aimed his ire at his favorite GOP target: Mitch McConnell.
“Get rid of McConnell,” Trump ranted. “He should never have accepted what was sent to him by Mike Pence. He should have fought like hell, like the Dems would have. Losers are Losers, that will never change!”
“Just another Giant Election Scam. Wake up America!!! he exclaimed.
The race is still too close to call with Democrat Katie Hobbs still leading in the governor’s race by 26,011 votes.
