He is quite sure there are more to be found in Minnesota which I find amusing. It is probably the bluest state in the nation—only going red once, if my memory serves me right.
Yet Trump insists that he has been cheated of victory. He who insists the coronavirus is just a form of flu and will just go away when it gets warm. So now it is his belief the election results are fake.
