WATCH | Press Secretary Sean Spicer speaks after an eventful morning for President Trump.
When asked whether Trump believes he lost the popular vote due to illegal immigrants voting en masse, Spicer reiterated that Trump believes that but cited no evidence to support his claim. He mentioned a study by Pew Research Center discussing illegal immigration and voting in general.
Spicer cites a Pew 2008 study statistic on voter fraud in briefing.— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) January 24, 2017
1. It was in 2012.
2. It wasn't Pew.
3. Its author said Trump is wrong.
Many called out Spicer on his citation of that study.
Spicer caught between defending POTUS's lie - 3m people "voted illegally" - & defending why Trump admin not investigating those 3m "crimes."— Ari Melber (@AriMelber) January 24, 2017
