The Department of Homeland Security agency, together with a group of federal, state and local election officials issued a statement on Thursday rejecting President Trump’s unfounded claims that some 2.7 million votes in his favor was deleted nationwide. The allegation, which Trump has shared on Twitter, came after candidate Joe Biden was declared last weekend as the probable winner in the 2020 Presidential elections. The election officials further vouched that the recent elections was the most secure in U.S history.
The New York Times: “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised”
A group of federal, state and local election officials issued a statement on Thursday declaring flatly that the election “was the most secure in American history” and that “there is no evidence” any voting systems were compromised, shares The New York Times.
The statement was distributed by the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, which is one of Mr. Trump’s own cabinet agencies and responsible for helping states secure the voting process.
“While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should, too,” the officials added in their statement. “When you have questions, turn to elections officials as trusted voices as they administer elections.”
