Donald Trump called swing state Nevada “disgraceful” and in a new interview falsely claimed he won the silver state “by a wide margin” in both 2016 and 2020.
The Nevada globea right-wing website, noted that the state has not voted for a Republican candidate since President George W. Bush was elected in 2004.
This seemed to upset him.
“I think I won last time. I think I won both times by a significant margin,” Trump said. “It’s a state of shame.”
The former president lost the state by about 2.5 percentage points in both 2016 and 2020.
But he told the Globe, “You robbed the vote on one level” and attacked his state campaign co-chair, former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt.
“Adam Laxalt is an idiot and he didn’t do his job,” he said, calling him a “terrible lawyer.”
In the same plaintive interview, Trump also repeated his attacks on his own Attorney General Bill Barr; boasted the firing of then-FBI Director James Comey as “one of the best firings ever”; and repeated his debunked conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.
Twitter users were stunned by Trump’s claims:
