Trump continues to unfold lies about voting irregularities even after the electoral faculty confirmed Biden’s victory
President Donald Trump alleged that the 2020 presidential election irregularities were due to faulty machines and continued a series of false claims about the voting process the day after the electoral college confirmed Joe Biden as president-elect.
“There are enormous problems with voting machines. You’re so far away it’s ridiculous. Can win a landslide victory and reduce it to a slim loss, ”wrote the president. “That’s not what the US is about. Screening machines for law enforcement agencies. DO NOT manipulate a crime. There is much more to come! “

Trump has often claimed that Dominion voting machines have been compromised in some way, but that has already been exposed.
The conspiracy theory originated from pro-Trump
OANN citing “data analysis” and without clear evidence claiming that Dominion “deleted 2.7 million Trump votes nationwide.” An investigation by the New York Times found that there were explanations of voting irregularities in cases in Michigan and Georgia that affected Dominion software.
“Dominion software was only used in two of the five counties in Michigan and Georgia that had problems, and in each case there was a detailed explanation of what had happened. In all cases, software did not affect the number of votes, ”the Times reported.
The point of sale continued, “In the two flawed Michigan counties, the inaccuracies were due to human error, not software problems, according to the Michigan State Department, county officials and electoral security experts. Only one of the two Michigan counties used Dominion software. “
Problems in three Georgia counties “had different explanations,” they continued. “In one county, an apparent problem with Dominion software delayed officers’ reporting of the number of votes, but it did not affect the actual number of votes. In two other countries, a separate company’s software slowed poll workers’s ability to check-in voters. “
US security agencies have debunked the president’s allegations and found no evidence that the election was compromised.
A Explanation posted last month The Federal Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), part of a joint statement by the Coordination Council of the electoral infrastructure government and the electoral infrastructure sector coordination committees, found that the agencies “found no evidence that a voting system was deleted or votes were changed or has been compromised in any way. “The statement called the 2020 general election” the safest in American history “.
