Mary L. Trump, the niece and vocal critic of the president, has attacked her uncle as he made a series of false statements about election fraud and how it was being “stolen” from him.
Mary Trump gave a simple refute of the president while he was giving his remarks on Thursday evening, which several major U.S. news networks cut their feeds of because he was spreading so much misinformation.
“This is what it looks like when a loser loses,” she tweeted. The post has since been retweeted more than 23,000 times.
President Donald Trump spoke to reporters for the first time since his 2am Eastern time conference on Wednesday in which he falsely declared that he had already won the election and the fact it hasn’t been called is a “fraud on the American public.”
In Trump’s latest conference, he claimed that “if you count the legal vote, I easily win,” and that “if you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us.”
Trump also claimed he has heard “absolute horror stories” on election fraud, despite still not providing any evidence, and that “partisan Democrats” allowed ballots in Pennsylvania to be received three days after the election. It was the state and U.S. supreme court which allowed ballots received up to 5 p.m. on Friday to still be counted as long as there is no evidence showing the votes were cast after Tuesday.
Trump also falsely said that the election apparatus in Georgia is run by Democrats despite being overseen by secretary of state Brad Raffensperger, who is a Republican, and that GOP election observers have been banned or denied access when attempting to watch the votes being counted.
The main issue was how close observers representing the parties could get to counters. Trump’s advisers were able to get a supreme court order which allowed their team to get within six feet of counters at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia on Thursday.
Elsewhere, Trump said how “we were winning in all the key locations by a lot, actually, and then our numbers started miraculously getting whittled away.” Again, the president appears to take issue with the fact that his lead has been drastically cut once votes which had not been counted yet had been taken into account.
Trump’s lead has been severely narrowed in key swing states such as Pennsylvania and Georgia as the mail-in ballot appears to have favored Joe Biden as predicted. As of Friday morning, Trump is currently leading Georgia by just a few hundred votes and fewer than 20,000 in Pennsylvania having led there by several hundred thousand votes on Wednesday morning.
Mary L. Trump has frequently criticized the president in the run-up to the election, including during his conference on Wednesday morning in which he falsely declared he had already won the election.
“Trump just said he doesn’t want ‘them to find more votes at 4am wtf… that’s exactly what is supposed to happen,” she tweeted. “Votes are still being counted. Have a seat sir. Everyone’s vote counts.”
She added: “Every vote must be counted. Donald is lying.”
