Obama says Trump’s baseless claims of voter fraud — and GOP leaders ‘going along with’ them — are a step in delegitimizing democracy and put US on ‘dangerous path’

Former President Barack Obama criticized President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of mass voter fraud and the GOP leaders that are “going along with” his claims, during an interview with CBS News on Wednesday.

“It is one more step in delegitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally,” Obama said. “And that’s a dangerous path.”

Since President-elect Joe Biden was projected to win the election, many Republican lawmakers have yet to acknowledge it. Meanwhile, Trump has continued to push unproven claims of widespread voter fraud.
