US President Donald Trump ordered on Wednesday a “major investigation” into the alleged electoral fraud that took place in the election, a claim not supported by any evidence so far and that has faced him with members of his Own party, the Republican.
“I’m going to ask for a lot of research on electoral fraud, including those registered to vote in two states, illegal voters and even voters who were dead (and many of them for a long time),” he said. Today Trump in his account of the social network Twitter.
“Depending on the results, we will strengthen our voting procedures!”, added the tycoon in the social network.
In recent days, Trump has argued that there were between three and five million illegal votes in the November elections that allowed Democrat Democrat Hillary Clinton to win the popular vote despite failing to win the polling station, which is the system which determines who will be the new president.
Trump won the Clinton vote by 304 to 232, but the Democrat won about three million popular votes more than his rival, something that detractors of the real estate mogul constantly remember.
Before his victory, Trump had repeatedly denounced that the elections were rigged in Clinton’s favor by the massive vote of millions of undocumented immigrants, in addition to the suffrage of millions of dead and people exercising their right in two or more states .
Members of the Republican Party, such as Speaker of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, have been at odds with Trump’s theory.
