The US president's two oldest sons tweeted a flurry of claims of voter fraud and Eric demanded a manual recount of “every vote”
Us President Donald Trump has called the election "stolen" on Sunday morning as he tweeted claims from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich that Democrats "stole what they had to steal".
Trump, however, avoided using his own voice in a series of tweets; instead highlighting Gingrich - who had appeared on Fox and Friends - and Turley, a registered Democrat who had spoken against Trump's impeachment as a Republican witness to the House Judiciary Committee, reports the Daily Mail.
Almost immediately, the tweets were flagged by Twitter as possible misinformation. At the same time, Trump left the White House to play golf again, just like he did on Saturday.
The US president's two oldest sons tweeted a flurry of claims of voter fraud and Eric Trump demanded a manual recount of "every vote".
It is not clear if Eric and Don Jr. have spoken directly to their father who learned he was defeated while golfing and tweeted angrily: "I WON."
Just after Joe Biden addressed the nation however, Jared Kushner was revealed to be pushing his father-in-law to concede. The differing moves suggest a family split over what to tell the president.
The tweets suggest that Trump is not backing down or planning to concede despite signs he is already fracturing his family with his sons and Jared Kushner at odds over whether he should concede.
Gingrich's claims the election was corrupt came from a Fox & Friends interview in which he called Democrats 'corrupt' and claimed the outcome was a "left-wing power grab."
