NEW YORK — Giuliani on Tuesday slammed President Donald Trump’s claim that the 2016 election was stolen, saying that there was no evidence to support the claim.
“We have been hit with the biggest fake news in modern time,” the former New York mayor said during a press conference in the Roosevelt Room of the White House.
Giuliana was reacting to a question about Trump’s assertion that Russian President Vladimir Putin had stolen the election.
Trump has suggested that the hacking of Democratic Party emails by WikiLeaks and other online groups was the work of Russian intelligence agencies.
He also suggested the election could have been stolen from him, as happened to Republican President George W. Bush in 2000.
“There was no collusion.
There was no Russian hacking,” Giuliani said.
“There was absolutely no collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
There is no collusion at all.
There never has been.””
I know this because I worked with a number of people who were in the Obama administration.
They would tell you there were no conversations or communications between the campaign and Russia,” Giuliani added.
Trump had previously asserted that the election was “rigged,” but did not mention the election in his Sunday speech.
Trump also said the election would be “rigging” in 2020 and he would seek a recount in the states that went for Clinton.
