Former President Donald Trump calls into question the validity of Montana’s election | Top Story

MONTANA- Late Saturday night former president Donald Trump hosted one of his first rallies since leaving office, on stage the former president questioned the validity of the treasure states 2020 election.

“In Montana, over 6% of a certain county's mail-in ballots are missing, evidence to prove that they were legitimate or not. They are missing all this evidence. Think of it, Montana, a lot of mail-in ballots. Where do you have the mail-in ballots, by the way?”- the former president said on stage.

WATCH:

There have been no reports of 6% of any counties mail-in ballots “missing” in Montana, if that information changes or new information is revealed we will update this web copy.

There is potential the former president could be referring to State Representative Brad Tschida's claims that ballots that were not counted in Missoula, the Missoula commission sent a letter to Secretary of State Christi Jacobsen dismissing the claims, pointing out that secondary envelopes with barcodes were missing from theses voters making it impossible for them to match the signature on the envelopes.

Meaning, a voter did not properly fill out their ballot and send it in to the elections office in correct form.

It should be noted there is a difference between an accusation of “missing ballots,” and ballots that cannot be counted due to a voter not sending in the ballot with the correct information.

This is the first accusation by the former president of irregularities in Montana, it was stated by Twitter users that the former president may have confused the state of Montana with the state of Michigan.
