Trump continues to falsely insist that the election was ‘stolen’ and that the ‘actual’ rebellion was on Nov 3, 2020, the day Democrat Joe Biden gained a 306-232 Electoral Faculty victory. Federal and state election officers, Trump’s personal lawyer common and quite a few judges ” together with some he appointed ” have all mentioned repeatedly that the election was honest and that there is no such thing as a credible proof of great fraud.
