As the scrutiny of Tuesday’s electionsTrump said from the White House that he would win “easily” if “legal votes” were counted, but that if “illegal votes” were included, Democrats could “try to steal our elections.”
Without supports: nor the Fox
At that time and very quickly, the channel MSNBC its live broadcast ceased. “Well, here we are again in the unusual position of (having to) not only interrupt the president of the United States, but also correct the president of the United States,” snapped the presenter, Brian Williams. NBC News y ABC News they also interrupted the transmission that finally ended up not being a conference or a press conference, since the president left the desk without answering questions from journalists.
CNN he fully broadcast the statement live, but his host Jake Tapper criticized the president. “What a sad night for the United States of America to see its president … falsely accuse people of trying to steal elections!” Tapper said. One of the channels that has most supported Trump, Fox, has also denied the president’s words.
Virtually no major media outlet has corroborated the accusations of electoral fraud made by the Trump campaign. “Trump has said without proof that the election has been corrupt and fraudulent,” published Nicole Carroll, the editor of ‘USA Today’, one of the most widely read general newspapers in the United States. ‘The Washington Post’, ‘The New York Times’ y ‘Los Ángeles Times’ they also denied the president.
Likewise, justice in Georgia and Michigan has also dismissed the first lawsuits filed by Trump, who depends on the media’s support from Fox News, which is falling, and from “alternative” media that emerged on social networks.
