Consistent with its efforts of the past six months, President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is once again working to undermine trust in the 2020 election as Trump faces slim odds to overtake Democratic nominee Joe Biden's current electoral lead.
The Trump campaign recently announced a lawsuit to stop counting ballots in the crucial swing state of Nevada.
Trump campaign official and former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard "Ric" Grenell baselessly claimed at a press conference in Nevada that thousands of fraudulent ballots had been cast in the state and that there were no election observers monitoring the counting.
The Trump campaign has provided no evidence of the serious accusation that thousands of votes were fraudulently cast. It could be a similar tactic to Trump's false assertion that he would've won the popular vote in 2016 if it weren't for "millions" of supposedly fake ballots.
Grenell's claim that there were no election officials is a lie.
MSNBC reporter Jacob Soboroff confronted Grenell and Trump spokesman Matt Schlapp, who evaded him without elaborating on their accusations.
Grenell told Soboroff to direct his questions to the election clerk before joining Schlapp in a van and driving off.
People commended Soboroff's unflinchingness.
They shamed Grenell for his evasiveness.
Votes in Nevada continue to be counted.
