The White House on Tuesday said that the United States President Donald Trump believes that millions of people in America illegally voted in the US election based on ‘studies and evidence’.
Sean Spicer, the press secretary said that Mr. Trump ‘does believe that’, however gave no such evidence to back the alleged claim when pressed by reporters.
On constant occasions, Trump kept repeating his claim to render an explanation as to why he lost to Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Nevertheless, any kind of conception of prevalent voter fraud has been rejected widely. Spicer mentioned to the reporters that, "He continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence that people have presented to him."
These comments from Mr. Spicer came in post president told congressional leaders behind the closed doors on Monday night that almost three to five million undocumented immigrants had illegally voted in the election.
President Donald Trump had first made these claims last November and had not provided any kind of evidence.
The claim has been rejected by fast-checkers as untrue and Republican election officials in prime states have stated that they have found no proof of any kind of fraud voting.
The National Association of Secretaries of State on Tuesday said it has confidence in the "systemic integrity of our election process" and was not aware of any kind of evidence pertaining to President Donald Trump’s claim.
The Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, garnered approximately three million votes more than Mr. Trump, who won the presidency by dominating in the alleged swing states.
Republicans reproved Mr. Trump and have suggested him to drop the matter a day after the behind-the-door meeting with the congressional leaders.
Lindsey Graham, the senator called those comments “inappropriate”, further adding that Donald Trump should “knock this off”.
He further added in his statement that the president "seems to be obsessed with the idea that he could not have possibly lost the popular vote without cheating and fraud".
