Trump Calls For End To Florida Recount


U.S. President Donald Trump is urging Florida election officials to end the state's recount. Officials in the state are moving to review more than 8 million ballots by Thursday from last week's midterm elections. The lead by Republican candidates for a seat in the U.S. Senate and for the governor’s office shrank as more ballots were recounted. State law mandates recounts in elections where the margin of victory is within 0.5 percentage points. Trump called for an end to the recount on Monday, claiming that voter fraud took place, although he provided no evidence. “The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged."
