It's been more than a week since the Associated Press and all major television news outlets projected that President-elect Joe Biden would surpass the 270 electoral votes required to take the White House, defeating President Donald Trump in his bid for a second term.

But Trump is still refusing to acknowledge the results of the election, tweeting this weekend that he "WON THE ELECTION!" and that widespread voter fraud tipped the race to Biden.

In the culmination of a months-long effort from the Trump campaign to sow mistrust in voting by mail, Trump's team has filed numerous lawsuits across multiple states falsely alleging massive voting irregularities.

Eric Shawn, an anchor on the conservative Fox News network, further debunked these falsehoods in under two minutes.

Watch below.

Shawn played statements from the Trump-appointed U.S. Election Assistance Commissioner, Ben Hovland; Philadelphia's Republican City Commissioner, Al Schmidt; and election software company Dominion Voting Systems, which Trump has falsely claimed switched Trump votes to Biden votes.

All of these statements thoroughly denied that there was any legitimacy in the President's claims of a "fake" election.

Shawn concluded:

"Election officials across the country insist as of today there is no evidence of any widespread fraud affecting the outcome of the presidential election, that our precious democracy was not tampered with and that such baseless and false claims are an insult to the thousands of election officials and workers across the country who we have seen dedicating themselves 24/7 to ensure a fair and free election for all of us."

Trump has grown increasingly frustrated with Fox News for its occasional unflattering coverage of the President, encouraging his followers to watch the far-right media outlet One America News instead.

People applauded Shawn's fact-checking.

Trump's lies about voter fraud are growing increasingly delusional.

Despite Trump's opposition, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be inaugurated on January 20th.
