Trump Weighs in on Possible Election Fraud in Florida--Here's What He Had to Say

Update: He just responded to questions about it from reporters Friday morning. 

“You notice the votes never go the other way?” Trump said. “They hire lawyers, and the votes don’t ever seem to go the Republican way…I don’t know. You tell me. It’s always the Democrats.”

He continued: "There’s a lot of bad stuff going on in this country, and we’re finding out. And I’m getting to the bottom of it. And I’ve done a hell of a job.”

Update II: And later on Twitter he used the incident to mock Democrats' obsession with Russia.

Original Post: 

President Trump said Thursday night on Twitter that law enforcement is looking into possible election fraud in Florida. 

“Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach,” he said. “Florida voted for Rick Scott!”

Thousands of additional ballots from two heavily Democratic counties in Florida are continuing to be reported.

In a series of tweets, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is crying foul over the process, worrying that Dems are trying to steal the election. 

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has also responded, saying the situation in Florida is “unacceptable.”

“The #Broward Elections Supervisor has been pulling stunts like this for years and we’re not going to let her get away with it,” she said on Twitter. 

As Matt reported, GOP Senate candidate Rick Scott and the NRSC are suing Democratic counties for vote count irregularities.

"I will not stand idly by while unethical liberals try to steal an election," Scott said.
