Trump obviously won the election, but he narrowly lost New Hampshire to Hillary Clinton. He told senators Thursday that was because of the “thousands” of people “brought in on buses” from Massachusetts to “illegally vote” in New Hampshire. The room reportedly responded with an “uncomfortable silence.”
Trump indicated that this voter fraud, of which there is no evidence, had also affected Ayotte, though he suggested her loss might have also had something to do with her decision to distance herself from him after he criticized the parents of a Muslim Gold Star soldier. “He told her, ‘You’d have won if you’d been on my train,” a participant told Politico.
Then, as the cherry on top of that crumbling cake, Trump told Democrats he was glad “Pocahontas” — his chosen nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) — was “becoming the face of ‘your party,'” Politico reported.
