President Donald Trump slammed Arizona’s attorney general Friday over reports of election fraud in Arizona.
Trump asked, “When is the Attorney General of Arizona going to rule on all of the Election Fraud and large-scale Election Irregularities that wait before him?”
“People want to know whether or not Attorney General Brnovich is up to doing the right thing, or is it just politics as usual,” he added.
The 45th president’s challenge to Attorney General Mark Brnovich comes as Republican lawmakers in crucial battleground states have ramped up election audits and voter fraud investigations in the 2020 presidential election.
In February, State Rep. Mark Finchem, R-Ariz., proposed a resolution to decertify the results of the 2020 election in three Arizona counties. As more voter fraud allegations and evidence continue to arise in narrowly divided states, Republicans have repeatedly called for states to decertify the results and examine the evidence.
In Wisconsin, investigations into voter fraud in the 2020 election have also yielded troubling results, leading Assembly Speaker Robin Vos to assert, “I think there was widespread fraud. I think we are going to see more and more data that comes out as Justice Gableman continues his investigation.”
In his statement, Trump wrote, “The strongly Trump-Endorsed Kari Lake, who is running for Governor has made the Fraudulent 2020 Election a primary part of her campaign.” As a result of making issues like voter fraud important in her campaign, Trump said, “She is leading by massive numbers over her weak RINO competitors.”
Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has recently built on her momentum from Trump’s endorsement and her vocal support for key issues such as voter fraud and election integrity. On Tuesday, Lake qualified for the August primary ballot in Arizona.
The 45th president also described election fraud as “Both the issue of the day and the Crime of the Century!”
“And now, on top of everything else,” Trump continued, “It was just announced by the New York Times that they, in collusion with other Fake News Media, covered up the Hunter Biden crime story prior to the Election (a 15 point difference!).”
Trump’s reference to the New York Times comes after the outlet confirmed details surrounding the Hunter Biden laptop story that it previously denied in the days leading up to the 2020 election.
With voter fraud once again in the headlines, Trump summarized the thoughts of many Americans: “Wow, what a country.”
