Trump thanks Washington Post after ‘find the fraud’ story corrected and complains ‘the lies always slant one way’


Former president Trump slammed the Washington Post and media at large on Monday, after the paper mistakenly reported that he told election officials in Georgia to “find the fraud” before issuing a lengthy correction.

“Establishment media errors, omissions, mistakes, and outright lies always slant one way—against me and Republicans,” Mr Trump wrote in a statement on Monday.

Following the November election, the ex-president spent weeks falsely alleging there was massive voter fraud which cost him a win in the state. (Secretary Raffensperger, a Republican and Trump supporter, has insisted numerous times, backed up by multiple recounts and audits, that there’s no evidence of any irregularities that would’ve changed things.)

In January, the Post reported on the substance of a 23 December call between Mr Trump and Frances Watson, the chief investigator for Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, as the state conducted an audit in Cobb County after two recounts showed Joe Biden as the winner.
