Trump Falsely Claims He Won Minnesota in 2020

ST PAUL – This morning, one day ahead of Minnesota’s presidential primary, Donald Trump called into a Minnesota conservative talk radio show and claimed for the first time that he actually won Minnesota in the 2020 election (he did not).

HOST: Since you have time and you’re talking to the Ox, I got to think that maybe after disappointing years in 16 and 20, that you think you have a shot at winning Minnesota this year?

[0:34] TRUMPWell, I thought we won it last time, I’ll be honest. And I think we did win it. And it’s very interesting. Bad things happened with Minnesota.

Minnesota DFL Chairman Ken Martin release the following statement:

“Donald Trump’s lies about losing Minnesota underscore the unprecedented threat that he poses to our democracy. These are the same lies that he pushed when he sent his supporters to attack the Capitol on January 6, and they are just as dangerous today. Minnesota has had a long, bipartisan tradition of embracing democracy and free elections. By choosing retribution and revenge over our democracy, Donald Trump has put himself on the wrong side of Minnesota values.”

Minnesota’s presidential primary is tomorrow, March 5.
