Despite Democrat Joe Biden capturing over 270 electoral votes, President Donald Trump on Sunday continued to cast doubt on the 2020 presidential election and has not conceded.

Trump shared a series of tweets claiming voter fraud was responsible for his defeat. He shared quotes that supported the unsubstantiated theory that there was cheating in the election.

Trump shared a statement from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Republican who has been a staunch Trump supporter. “‘We believe these people are thieves. The big city machines are corrupt. This was a stolen election,’” the tweet read.

“‘Best pollster in Britain wrote this morning that this clearly was a stolen election, that it’s impossible to imagine that Biden outran Obama in some of these states. Where it mattered, they stole what they had to steal.’”

However, the post was just one of many Twitter flagged with the warning, “This claim about election fraud is disputed.”

Those who clicked on the warning were then taken to a page that fact-checked the statement and revealed election experts have confirmed voter fraud is exceedingly rare in the U.S.

In a different tweet, Trump shared a quote from law scholar Jonathan Turley, who suggested the U.S. has a history of voter fraud.

“‘We should look at the votes. We’re just beginning the tabulation stage. We should look at these allegations. We’re seeing a number of affidavits that there has been voter fraud. We have a history in this country of election problems,’” the post read.

The only tweet of Trump’s that hasn’t been flagged by Twitter on Sunday was the post criticizing the press for calling the election.

“Since when does the Lamestream Media call who our next president will be? We have all learned a lot in the last two weeks!” Trump tweeted.

While Biden leads by 4 million votes nationwide as of Sunday at 3 p.m. ET, and has 279 electoral votes, Trump has yet to concede the election. According to White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere, the president will only “accept the results of a free and fair election.”
