President Trump still believes millions voted illegally, but there's still no evidence


White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday that President Donald Trump still believes that millions voted illegally during this year's presidential election. But, he has yet to provide any evidence to support that claim, which has been discounted multiple times. 

"The President does believe that I think he's stated that before, and stated his concern of voter fraud and people voting illegally during the campaign and continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence people have brought to him," Spicer said during a press briefing.

Even when pressed about the claim, Spicer only said Trump "has believed that for a while based on studies and information he has." 

Spicer said it is possible that Trump will call for a voter fraud investigation. 

Despite winning the election, Trump has been focused on his opponent, Hillary Clinton, winning the popular vote during the presidential election. 

In November he tweeted, "In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally."

Still, no studies have found widespread evidence that indicates the election was affected by voter fraud. 

In fact, even other high-profile Republicans aren't coming to Trump's defense on this one. 

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) told The Hill he's seen "no evidence" to support Trump's Claims.
