Daniel Dale for CNN:
Since his presidency ended, Donald Trump has issued more statements lying about the 2020 election than statements talking about any other subject.
Banned from Twitter since early January, Trump has communicated his post-presidency musings in written statements that are emailed to journalists and posted on his website. These missives, many of which were initially featured on his now-shuttered blog, have replaced his tweets as the most comprehensive public record of his day-to-day thinking.
And after crunching the numbers, what’s clear is that Trump’s primary focus is the election he lost.Forty-three of the 132 post-presidency statements Trump had issued through June 9 included a lie about the election. That’s about 33%. These lies range from vague claims that the election was “stolen” and “rigged” to specificfalse assertions about what happened in various states he lost.
