Trump’s voter fraud claims undermine the democratic process and his presidency

There is no benign explanation for President Trump’s false assertion that millions of people voted illegally in the last election. It is either a deliberate attempt to undermine faith in the democratic process, an exhortation to those who favor new restrictions on access to the ballot box or the worrisome trait of someone with immense power willing to make wild statements without any credible evidence.

By repeating as president what he had said as a candidate, for whatever purpose, Trump is now striking at the foundation of a democratic society. CONT.
