Trump Rants Amid Voter Fraud Controversy

Donald Trump went on a Twitter rant Monday evening, quoting several users -- including one who says he is a teenager -- who argued that he was being unfairly targeted for his voter fraud claims.

Trump raised eyebrows Sunday when he said, without providing evidence, that he would have won the popular vote had "millions of people" not voted illegally. He also said that "serious voter fraud" existed in California, New Hampshire and Virginia.

The statements drew criticism from secretaries of state in those jurisdiction as well as disavowal from the authors of studies cited by his transition team to justify the president-elect's claim.

When pressed today, Trump's team provided no evidence of voter fraud.

On Monday night, Trump rewteeted several messages including one that said "There is NO QUESTION THAT #voterfraud did take place"

One of the tweets came from @Filibuster, who claims to be a 16-year-old named Seth from Beverly Hills, Calif.

Trump has claimed that he won the Electoral College in a "landslide" and that he would have won the popular vote, giving at least two explanations.

In the wake of the election, he tweeted that he would have run up the score in California and New York by campaigning there if the contest had been based on the popular vote.

Then on Sunday, he made the claim about illegal votes. None of the tweets from the president-elect offered any evidence of voter fraud.
