Former President Trump Uses Baseless Disinformation in Attempt to Sow Election Chaos in Nevada
NEVADA – Thursday morning, former President Donald Trump, who is under investigation for his role in the criminal conspiracy to overturn the results of the 2020 election, made his thoughts on Nevada’s vote counting process known. In a statement, he claims, without evidence, that Nevada’s election process is ‘corrupt’ and that it ‘gives time to cheat’. This is in spite of Nevada’s election system being among the highest ranked in the country for accuracy and transparency.
“It’s unsurprising that Donald Trump, who saw his political ambitions shattered earlier this week, is still insisting on false attacks on Nevada’s elections in order to save face for his failing candidates,” said Annette Magnus, Executive Director of Battle Born Progress. “His hand-picked candidate for Senate, Adam Laxalt, engaged in this exact same behavior in 2020, which likely earned Laxalt his coveted endorsement. Nevada in fact has an extremely robust, accurate, and tested process for counting every eligible vote correctly. Election night is not results night, and this is the exact sort of unfounded, hasty conclusion, based on disinformation, that we’ve warned about for weeks. Fortunately, given the disgraced former President’s tactics of sowing chaos being well known, we have faith in our hardworking election officials and workers to complete Nevada’s vote counting with due diligence, unbothered by these disgusting and false accusations. Nevadans need to ignore these sad attempts to undermine democracy and keep calm and allow our officials across the state to count EVERY vote.”
