WASHINGTON – U.S. President Donald Trump has pledged to start a “major investigation into voter fraud”, after claiming that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election.

The new president took to Twitter on Wednesday and said, “I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time)”.

He further tweeted, “Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!”

Trump has repeatedly insisted, without evidence, that he lost the popular vote due to large scale voter fraud, adding that up to five million illegal votes were cast for Hillary Clinton.
