Donald Trump Repeats False Voter Fraud Claims in ABC News Interview (Video)

President sits down with David Muir for first on-camera sit-down since inauguration

Donald Trump doubled down on his false voter fraud claims in an interview with ABC News’ David Muir which airs tonight.

“When you look at the people who are registered, dead, illegal, and two states … We have a lot to look into,” Trump said, reiterating a factually inaccurate claim he’s made repeatedly since the election.

In the preview of the interview (above) the president also repeated his promise to launch an investigation into what he believes to be “millions” of illegally cast votes.

Muir responded by pointing out that there is no evidence of voter fraud and the fact that the President of the United States keeps claiming otherwise calls into question one of the foundational elements of our democracy.

“What you have presented so far has been debunked,” Muir said, explaining that the author of the 2012 Pew report study cited by the White House as evidence of voter fraud has denied Trump’s claims.

“Then why did he write the report?” Trump responded.

“I always talk about the reporters that grovel when they want to write something that you want to hear,” Trump said. “But not necessarily millions of people want to hear – or have to hear.”

Trump also promised that “none” of the supposedly fraudulent votes were cast for him.

“”I will say this,” he said. “Of those votes cast, none of them come to me. None of them come to me,” Trump said. “They would all be for the other side. None of them come to me.

Elsewhere in the sit-down with ABC News, Trump said that he believes “absolutely” that torture works as an intelligence gathering tactic, and said that he believes construction on his promised southern border wall will begin in “months.”

The interview is set to air at 10 PM Eastern. Watch additional preview clips from the interview below:
