Votes are not being stolen — they're just still being counted. There is no evidence of a conspiracy to invalidate Republican ballots or disenfranchise Trump supporters. — John Haltiwanger, Senior Politics Reporter at Business Insider
Trump falsely claims election being stolen, but votes just being counted
  • President Donald Trump has falsely claimed the election is being stolen, when in reality votes are just being counted.
  • The unprecedented number of mail-in ballots in 2020 guaranteed the election would be complicated and that it would take more time than usual for votes to be counted.
  • Counting votes is very different than stealing votes, which Trump has suggested as Joe Biden has been declared the winner in key battleground states.
