President Donald Trump has lambasted Florida’s election recount process, calling it an attempt by Democrats to win a US Senate seat with fake votes, report agencies.
Mr Trump told reporters “there’s a lot of dishonesty” over contested votes in Broward County. However, there has been no evidence of voter fraud.
The gap between the two candidates – Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Bill Nelson – narrowed to 0.2% as of Friday as Broward County votes were counted.
Both candidates are suing the state.
Mr Scott, who claimed victory on Tuesday, is suing officials over an election recount, while Mr Nelson is suing over uncounted ballots.
The county, which is part of the greater Miami metropolitan area, is known to be a Democratic region of the Republican-leaning state.
“Rick Scott was up by 50,000+ votes on Election Day, now they ‘found’ many votes and he is only up 15,000 votes,” Mr Trump tweeted on Friday.
Trump wanted to talk. With Marine One waiting for him on the lawn, he headed over to a spot near the White House where I was standing – along with my colleagues. The president was – as one reporter near me said – “on fire”.
When another journalist asked about the Florida race, Trump lit into the subject, telling us about “bad things” that have gone on in Broward County, Florida, the place where votes are being counted in a Senate race between Republican Rick Scott and Democrat Bill Nelson. Earlier Scott said he’d won. Now the electoral gap’s narrowing, and the president is not pleased.
