National fears of problems within the presidency continued to rise as Donald Trump detailed a conspiracy theory on a national news broadcast.
Appearing on ABC, Trump told anchor David Muir that in his mind, voters are registered to vote in multiple states and made multiple votes on election day.
None of the events Trump discusses ever actually happened on Election Day 2016. In reality, nearly 3 million more people voted for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee. Trump won the electoral college but clearly and decisively lost the popular vote to Clinton.

Trump also announced on Wednesday that he would be investigating the conspiracy theory at taxpayer expense, though he did not detail how such an investigation would take place or which government agency it would be through. Congressional Republicans said they would not conduct an investigation into Trump’s conspiracy theory.
