Former President Donald Trump suffered a humiliating defeat on Friday when the so-called “audit” of ballots in Arizona’s Maricopa County, backed by supporters of the twice-impeached one-term president, confirmed that the 2020 election results were legitimate. The audit carried out by the Cyber Ninjas indicated that President Joe Biden’s margin of victory widened in the state’s most populous county than first recorded. Trump initially praised Cyber Ninjas, calling the group “highly respected” until the results came in, then he deleted that statement from his site. Since then, Trump has sent out a flurry of statements to falsely claim that the audit turned up fraud. However, a spokesperson for the auditor contradicted Trump’s claims.
On Saturday, Real America’s Voice host David Brody just came out and asked the former president if he would accept the results after calling the group “highly respected.”
“Mr. President, I want to give you a chance also to respond to the news out today about this audit. Maricopa County, Arizona, the draft of the report done by, in your words, highly respected auditors is out, apparently confirming Biden’s win in the state. Are you prepared to accept those results? What’s your sense of it?” Brody asked the former president.

In other words, they found that they were false votes, phantom votes, whatever you want to call them.”
“So I have to see because I’m not involved in it; I’m just watching like everybody else. And we’ll have to see what it is. The from what I heard, the report is a very strong report,” he continued. “But, you know, they wanted to get out ahead of it like they always like to do, whether it’s on Russia or Russia or Ukraine, Ukraine, they want to get out ahead of it. So we’re going to have to wait.
It said it’s going to be, I guess, Eastern Time. It’s going to be released at four o’clock. I’ve actually heard the results of the report is very damning, but they don’t want to say that. They want to get way out ahead where long before the report. I’ve heard the report is very damning.”

So many words, and yet, he didn’t answer the question.
