Ignored Racism: White Animus Toward Latinos
Allegations of voter fraud have been a consistent theme of Donald Trump’s communications since before his election. In October 2016, he tweeted multiple times that the election was going to be stolen from him through voter fraud. On November 27, 2016, after the election, he tweeted,
Serious fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire, and California so why isn’t the media reporting on this? Serious bias big problem!
The next day he tweeted at two reporters, “You have no sufficient evidence that Donald Trump did not suffer from voter fraud, shame! Bad Reporter.” and “There is NO QUESTION THAT #voterfraud did take place, and in favor of #CorruptHillary !” Early in his administration, he created a commission to examine the prevalence of voter fraud in America.
