DONALD Trump released a 14-minute long video on Tuesday running through what he called “the theft of the presidential election.”
His video, posted to Twitter, comes after Trump pardoned and issued commutations for Republican allies and threatened to veto Congress’ latest stimulus bill.

The president went on to claim what he’s been accusing Democrats of since Election Day: that he, in fact, won the presidential election, and that his opponent Joe Biden won because of millions of fraudulent votes.
Trump alleged that Democrats used the coronavirus pandemic to rig the 2020 election — which he lost to Joe Biden.
He said by midnight on Election Day, the Trump campaign was winning against Biden’s team.
Trump detailed key battleground states in which he had garnered more votes, and claimed it would have been impossible for Biden to beat hit lead.
“Then suddenly everything started to disappear, everything started to change. The vote-counting started to stop in multiple states.
Trump went on to say that at 6.31am ET, Michigan suddenly had a boost in votes for Biden, but not the president himself.
Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud causing him to lose the election have been shot down by the US intelligence community, Attorney General William Barr, and even his allies in Congress.
Last month, government officials declared that the 2020 race was the “most secure” election in American history.
The race was called for Biden after he secured Pennsylvania’s 20 Electoral College votes on November 7.
Trump and his legal team have launched roughly 50 legal challenges against the election results — anearly all have been dismissed or dropped.
He’s also lost twice at the Supreme Court.
Leading up to November 3 and on Election Day, an historic number of people turned out to vote in the race, which Biden won by more than 81million votes.
Trump received over 74million votes from the American people.
On Monday, Trump hosted several House Republicans at the White House to talk about his efforts to block Congress from affirming Biden’s victory.
Trump has been turning his attention to January 6 — which is when Congress participates in a count of the electoral votes.
Biden beat Trump in Electoral College votes 306-232.
The count, required by the Constitution, is generally a formality. But members can use the event to object to a state’s votes.
On January 6, a lawmaker can object to a state’s votes on any grounds. The objection will not be heard unless it is in writing and signed by both a member of the House and a member of the Senate.
If there is such a joint request, then the joint session suspends and the House and Senate go into separate sessions to consider it.
For the objection to be sustained, both chambers must agree to it by a simple majority vote. If they disagree, the original electoral votes are counted.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has told Senate Republicans that a dispute over the results in January would yield a “terrible vote” for Republicans.
