Trump Announces 2.7M Deleted Votes During Delirious Afternoon Breakdown

In an all-caps Thursday Twitter meltdown, President Donald Trump claimed that Dominion Voting Systems software “DELETED 2.7 MILLION TRUMP VOTES NATIONWIDE.” There is absolutely zero meaningful evidence for this unhinged claim. The nonsensical tirade hearkens back to Trump’s own claims after the 2016 election that millions of illegal votes had been cast in that year’s presidential race. There’s never been any meaningful evidence supporting this Trump claim, and neither is there any meaningful evidence supporting the president’s claims about this election. Instead of acknowledging ignorance surrounding basic electoral processes, Republicans seem to prefer to allege widespread fraud.

Trump’s kooky tweet alleging that millions of his votes were deleted — in which he cites the far-right propagandists at One America News Network — reads as follows:

‘“REPORT: DOMINION DELETED 2.7 MILLION TRUMP VOTES NATIONWIDE. DATA ANALYSIS FINDS 221,000 PENNSYLVANIA VOTES SWITCHED FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP TO BIDEN. 941,000 TRUMP VOTES DELETED. STATES USING DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS SWITCHED 435,000 VOTES FROM TRUMP TO BIDEN.”’

Again — there is no meaningful evidence supporting the president’s claim, which Twitter quickly marked as “disputed.” Millions of Trump votes were not deleted nationwide, and this assertion is not in question — it is basic, duly established fact.

Republicans have complained about Dominion Voting Systems software over its usage in a couple of counties that suffered mishaps during their initial post-election reporting of results. In two Michigan counties where documented mistakes emerged in initial tallies, human errors sparked the problems — not software. In Antrim County, Michigan, workers accidentally programmed the Dominion Voting Systems software’s reporting mechanism incorrectly. In another Michigan county with an initial error — where locals did not use Dominion software — workers accidentally counted votes from a city called Rochester Hills twice. Meanwhile, in one Georgia county, “an apparent problem with Dominion software delayed officials’ reporting of the vote tallies but did not affect the actual vote count,” the Hartford Courant explains.

In other words — there’s again no evidence here of some kind of systematic fraud, let alone of the deletion of millions of Trump votes. Ignorant so-called data analyses do not equal tangible evidence of fraud.
