'This is getting insane': Republicans break from Trump immediately after wild and false speech
  • Republican lawmakers on Thursday broke away from President Donald Trump's grievances and false claims about the 2020 US presidential election.
  • In a impromptu speech at the White House on Thursday afternoon, Trump made several allegations about the election based on little to no evidence. He also baselessly claimed that he had already won the election.
  • Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois said in a tweet that "this is getting insane" immediately after Trump's speech.
  • Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska, a state Trump easily carried in this election, said in a statement that "Americans voted in a peaceful election and there's not a winner until all the legally cast votes are counted."
"We want every vote counted, yes every legal vote (of course)," Kinzinger tweeted. "But, if you have legit concerns about fraud present EVIDENCE and take it to court. STOP Spreading debunked misinformation."

While Kinzinger did not specifically mention the president, he has been outspoken with his disagreements in recent days. In a tweet on Election Day, he replied to Trump's baseless allegations that political forces were "trying to STEAL the Election" by casting votes after the polls were closed.

"Stop. Full stop. The votes will be counted and you will either win or lose," Kinzinger said in his reply. "And America will accept that. Patience is a virtue."
