Trump claims Democrats wearing disguises voted twice

US President Donald Trump cited a weird reason for debacle in midterm elections saying that Democrats wearing disguises were voting more than once were responsible for Republican losses in tight congressional elections. “The Republicans do not win and that is because of potentially illegal votes,” Trump was quoted as saying by media in US.

Democrats have accused Republicans of manoeuvring to prevent full vote tallies, while Trump told The Daily Caller that voter fraud had tipped the contest into chaos.

Trump claimed, without providing any evidence, that blatant use of fake voters in disguise had swung close elections. “When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on,” Trump said.Republicans have pushed hard for tighter rules requiring voters to show identification when they come to cast ballots. Democrats have resisted, arguing that the number of false voters is minuscule and that demanding IDs would have the effect of suppressing turnout, especially of poorer black Americans, in favour of the Republicans. Trump shot back, saying that any ordinary shopper already carried documents that could be used at a polling station.
