Senate allies line up behind president’s attack on the count

Senate allies line up behind president’s attack on the count, by AFP.

Senators Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz enthusiastically backed him in back-to-back appearances on Fox News.

“I’ll tell you the President is angry and I’m angry and the voters ought to be angry,” Senator Cruz told the network’s host Sean Hannity, whose evening show is a favourite of the President. …

Asked by Hannity if the Pennsylvania legislature could refuse to recognise the results and instead give the state’s electoral votes to Mr Trump, Senator Graham replied “I think everything should be on the table”. “Philadelphia elections are crooked as a snake. Why are they shutting people out? Because they don’t want people to see what they’re doing,” said Senator Graham, who easily won re-election in South Carolina despite a major push by Democrats.
