Spicer: White House May Want a National Voter ID Law

The press grilled White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer yet again on Wednesday about the president’s accusation there was rampant voter fraud in the 2016 election. Trump reportedly said that 3-5 million “illegals” voted, costing him the popular vote.

A day after NPR asked Spicer why the White House had not investigated the claim, the administration said they would be launching one soon – but it wouldn’t just focus on 2016.

“This is about the integrity of our voting system,” Spicer said.

The press secretary noted that people often vote twice and even dead people are some states’ voter rolls. As such, the White House is ready to take necessary steps to “study to understand the scope of the problem and to stop the problem going forward.”

One solution President Trump may propose, Spicer mused, is a national voter ID law for all Americans.

“Voting is most sacred right that we have,” Spicer insisted, adding they "must ensure that we know every person’s vote counts equally.”
