President-elect Donald Trump is lashing out on Twitter as he faces questions about his unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud.
On Monday night, Trump retweeted a series of messages that were critical of a CNN reporter who called the accusations ‘‘blatant and baseless.’’
He then tweeted that CNN ‘‘is so embarrassed by their total (100%) support of Hillary Clinton, and yet her loss in a landslide, that they don’t know what to do.’’

He continued his attacks Tuesday morning:
I thought that @CNN would get better after they failed so badly in their support of Hillary Clinton however, since election, they are worse!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 29, 2016
Trump has responded to a recount effort by arguing that illegal voting happened in the November election, but he has offered no proof.
“In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally,” Trump wrote Sunday afternoon.
He also wrote on Sunday that there was “serious voter fraud” in three states, including New Hampshire, but did not offer any evidence to back up that claim.
The post also come days after Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein undertook a fundraising effort for recounts in three key states. Meanwhile, the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said it will participate in the Wisconsin recount, which was initiated by Stein.
