In an interview with 60 Minutes set to air on Sunday evening, former President Barack Obama goes after President Donald Trump’s allegations of voter fraud. The comments from the former president are certain to anger President Trump and Trump voters who are upset because the election was called by the mainstream media before any state has even certified the results.
Speaking about the claims of voter fraud, Obama says, “They appear to be motivated, in part, because the president doesn’t like to lose and never admits loss,” Mr. Obama told Scott Pelley in a clip from the interview that aired on “CBS Evening News.”
“Moreover, the former president says members of the president’s party who “go along with” his unfounded claims of election fraud put democracy on a dangerous path. [emphasis added]
“‘I’m more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials who clearly know better are going along with this, are humoring him in this fashion,’ Obama said. ‘It is one more step in delegitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally. And that’s a dangerous path.'”
