US Republican Senator, Mitt Romney said on Friday that it was wrong for Donald Trump to claim that the election was “rigged, corrupt and stolen” by Democratic rivals.
While the president is “within his rights” to request recounts and seek investigations into alleged voting irregularities, as his supporters claim occurred, “he is wrong to say that the election was rigged, corrupt and stolen.
“Doing so damages the cause of freedom here and around the world, weakens the institutions that lie at the foundation of the Republic, and recklessly inflames destructive and dangerous passions,” Romney said.
Meanwhile, the US President Donald Trump had submitted about 3,062 instances of electoral fraud to the Attorney General.
While the Dems Joe Biden leads in electoral votes against Trump, there are yet to be proven possibilities that the election was stolen and rigged as claimed by Republicans.
