(AP) – President Donald Trump has delivered a 46-minute diatribe against the election results that produced a win for Democrat Joe Biden, unspooling one misstatement after another to back his baseless claim that he really won.
Trump’s address was released only on social media Wednesday and delivered in front of no audience. He called it perhaps “the most important speech” of his presidency. But it was largely a recycling of the same litany of misinformation and unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud that he has been making for the past month.
Trump’s remarks raised fresh questions about how far the president may be willing to go in his campaign to overturn Biden’s win.
