In an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo—who failed to push back on any of Trump’s dubious voter fraud claims—Trump said foreign leaders have told him “that’s the most messed up election I’ve ever seen.”
One leader who has remained silent about Biden’s victory is Russian President Vladimir Putin, who referred to Biden as a “candidate” during an interview on November 22.
The White House has not offered transcripts of any calls Trump has had with a foreign leader since October.
Forbes has reached out to the White House For comment.
During the interview Sunday, Trump also said he does not expect he will change his mind over the next six months when it comes to the election results.
The president also suggested the FBI and DOJ may have rigged the election against him, saying: “This is total fraud…and how the FBI and Department of Justice—I don’t know—maybe they’re involved, but how people are getting away with this stuff—it’s unbelievable.”
