During Donald Trump’s interview with Bill O’Reilly before the Super Bowl on Sunday, Trump once again asserted his claim that millions of people illegally voted during the 2016 election.
Even after he was elected president, Trump has continued to make his unsubstantiated claim that he lost the popular vote due to millions of illegal votes cast on November 8th. O’Reilly brought this up by asking Trump if there was any “validity” to critics who say it is “irresponsible” of Trump to make his claims without providing any evidence.
Trump insisted that “many people” have come out and said he’s correct, though O’Reilly pointed out “you need to have data to back that up.” Trump continued to say that “it’s a really bad situation” where illegal immigrants and dead people have been turning up on voter registrars.
Trump said he wanted an investigation into voter fraud over a week ago, though there have been reports that the matter is no longer a “top priority” for him now.
