Politico The Democrats have a message for Trump’s “outrageously false” tweet that claims to show “voter fraud.”
The GOP is not taking him seriously.
In a statement to The Hill, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said the president was wrong to call the voter fraud claim “outright lies.”
“He is wrong to imply that the American people would not have approved of this president’s response to a deadly terrorist attack, even if they had done so in a different way,” Schiff said.
“This is yet another instance of Trump’s outrageous falsehoods and blatant disregard for the truth.
The American people deserve a president who is transparent, not someone who tells them they are wrong and who is willing to lie about the facts.”
The tweet went viral Friday, when it appeared on social media sites.
A screenshot of the tweet appeared on The Daily Beast.
But the statement released by the Democrats was less than complimentary.
“As we have repeatedly said, the American public is fed up with a President who lies and whose words have consequences,” Schiff’s statement said.
“Trump’s false claim that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election is a stark reminder that he has no respect for the Constitution, nor for the democratic process.
He is not fit to serve as our next president.”
Schiff, who is up for reelection in 2020, said he believes Trump has “failed the people of this country” and has a “long record of blatant disregard of the law.”
The statement said the Democratic Party would hold him accountable for his “outcryous and false statements.”
