President Donald Trump blasted the delayed election process in Arizona, calling for a new election to take place “immediately.”
According to The Hill, 93 percent of the votes in Arizona have been counted as of Monday, with Republican gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake trailing Democrat opponent Katie Hobbs by just under 25,000 votes.
Last Friday, Fox News announced that incumbent Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly defeated Republican nominee Blake Masters in the Senate race in Arizona, prompting the 45th president to sound the alarm over voting issues in the state.
“Idiot, and possibly corrupt, officials have lost control of the tainted Election in Arizona,” Trump said on Truth Social over the weekend. “MACHINES BROKEN IN REPUBLICAN AREAS. A NEW ELECTION MUST BE CALLED FOR IMMEDIATELY!”
Amid the prolonged ballot counting process, the 45th president has warned that the same voter integrity issues that occurred in the 2020 election are happening again.
“In Maricopa County they’re at it again,” Trump said. “Voting Machines in large numbers didn’t work, but only in Republican districts. People were forced to wait for hours, then got exhausted or had other things to do and left the voting lines by the thousands.”
In Trump’s post on Truth Social, he explained that Kari Lake “was taken to a Liberal Democrat district in order to vote” but explained that other voters were not as fortunate and were not able to vote.
Highlighting the possibility of widespread voter fraud in the midterm elections, Trump stated, “This is a scam and voter fraud, no different than stuffing the ballot boxes.”
Between what Trump believes are “rigged elections” and the Biden administration’s open border policy, Trump described the United States as a “third world country” and a “failing nation” in a separate post on Truth Social. The 45th president is once again calling for Republican leadership to take a stand against voter fraud before it is too late.
“They stole the Electron from Blake Masters,” Trump argued. “Do Election over again!”
