In a 46-minute speech posted to Facebook and Twitter, President Donald Trump reiterated claims of voter fraud and irregularities that he says took place during what he called a ridiculously long November 3 election.

“If we are right about the fraud, Joe Biden can’t be president,” he said Dec. 3. 

“We used to have what was called Election Day,” he continued. “Now we have Election days, weeks and months, and lots of bad things happened during this ridiculous period of time.”

At one point President Trump used a chart to show how he went from leading by a lot in Wisconsin, to losing by a little. He claims there’s evidence that the election results are wrong, particularly in swing states.

“Dozens of counties in the key swing states have more registered voters on the rolls than they have voting age citizens,” he said. 

This speech also took place on the same day President Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani appeared before the Michigan House oversight committee. Giuliani is alleging that Democrats led a concerted effort to steal the election across the country, including in Detroit where Biden won by a large margin.

“This is a swindle. It’s a con job. It’s a theft of an election,” he said, “and it was carried out by the same method in the city of Detroit. It’s not the first one they stole. And it’s not the last one they’re going to steal unless we do something about it.”

Meanwhile, on Dec. 2, Attorney General William Barr said the Justice Department had, so far, not seen fraud on a scale that would change the outcome of the election. Recounts in Wisconsin and Georgia also didn’t change the results.

Georgia’s election implementation manager Gabriel Sterling, who is Republican, had this to say: 

“I mean it’s looney tunes. It’s the president’s literally coming to Georgia to campaign for the same two senators that his two former lawyers were filing lawsuits to contest the election with the same claims the president made in his very long, 46-minute video yesterday that have already been debunked. I’m speechless. That’s the best I got right now.”
