After it was announced that Jill Stein of the Green Party had filed a recount in Wisconsin following reports of possible election hacking, #Donald Trump quickly addressed the issue on #Twitter. Trump claimed he was the victim of voter fraud, and wasn't happy that the media pushed back.
Donald Trump went on a Twitter firestorm on Sunday afternoon, claiming that he suffered from voter fraud attacks in California, New Hampshire, and Virginia, which he described as a "Serious bias" and a "big problem!" Trump also went on to claim that he would have won the popular vote over Hillary Clinton if it wasn't for alleged voting from illegal immigrants. Both claims were never backed up with evidence, which #CNN and other media outlets were quick to point out. As seen on his offical Twitter account on November 28, the president-elect went on another social media rant.
The billionaire real estate mogul has been using Twitter more than most thought he would since winning the election, and on Monday night tweeted and retweeted several disparaging remarks about Jeff Zeleny, the Senior Washington Correspondent for CNN. "@jeffzeleny what PROOF do u have Donald Trump did not suffer from millions of FRAUD votes?," Trump retweeted, before the tweet added, "Journalist? Do your job!"
Trump went on to tweet and retweet several more complaints about Zeleny. "@jeffzeleny just another generic CNN part time wannabe journalist !," Trump retweeted once again, adding "@CNN still doesn't get it. They will never learn!"
Trump didn't stop there, re-tweeting several more anti-CNN comments. "Pathetic - you have no sufficient evidence that Donald Trump did not suffer from voter fraud, shame!," the original tweet read, which also referred to Zeleny as a "Bad reporter." "There is NO QUESTION THAT #voterfraud did take place, and in favor of #CorruptHillary !"," Trump's final tweet said shortly before 9:30 p.m. local time.
Despite telling CBS's "60 Minutes" earlier this month that he would be "very restrained" on Twitter, Donald Trump has only increased his use of social media in recent days. From attacking the cast of "Saturday Night Live" and "Hamilton," to making false claims of voter fraud and illegal immigrants voting, the former host of "The Apprentice" doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. Trump is set to be sworn in as the next commander in chief on January 20, and only time will tell if his habits will continue.
