President Donald Trump is continuing his days-long Twitter tirade since major media outlets projected on Saturday that President-elect Joe Biden would defeat him in the 2020 election.

Numerous tweets from the President's infamous account have been flagged for spreading the baseless claims that widespread voter fraud occurred across the country, tipping the election to Biden.

One of Trump's most recent pieces of so-called evidence is a video of two men collecting ballots from a ballot box as a woman films them while questioning what they're doing.

Watch below.

Trump accompanied the tweet with the caption:

"You are looking at BALLOTS! Is this what our Country has come to?"

But in the video—taken in Los Angeles—the men identify themselves as ballot collectors and subsequently show identification. The woman asks where they intend to take them and they answer that they're bringing them to an election center before requesting she stay back six feet due to the pandemic.

The Los Angeles County Registrar confirmed this in a tweeted response.

People pointed out that, despite Trump's best efforts to make it something nefarious, the men were doing their jobs and making sure the ballots got counted.

Fact checks came pouring in.





The President was, once again, circulating disinformation to his 88 million followers in order to undermine faith in American democracy.



President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be inaugurated on January 20.
