Trump says he won California by a ‘tremendous margin’ in 2020. Results show he lost by nearly 30% to Biden.

At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), former President Donald Trump made several false statements. One of the most incorrect was his claim that he won the state of California in the 2020 presidential election, even though the official results show he did not. He also mentioned voting problems in Georgia and Pennsylvania.

Trump says "We won California by a tremendous margin. We won every county in California.", but he lost by 30% to Biden in 2020

Trump lost 30 percent to President Joe Biden in 2020 in California

In a video from Saturday, Trump, who actually lost California by nearly 30 percent to President Joe Biden in 2020, confidently told his audience, “We won California by a tremendous margin. We won every county in California.”

This statement was quickly proven wrong by fact-checkers, who pointed out the clear fact that Biden won California with all 55 of its electoral votes. This false claim by the former president is part of a larger pattern of him spreading wrong information, a tendency that has marked his time after the presidency.

Despite several recounts, audits, and legal decisions that have confirmed the 2020 election was fair, Trump keeps making false statements about the election results, causing some of his supporters to doubt the election process.

Trump continues with his making baseless claims

Trump used his speech at CPAC to continue making baseless claims about widespread voting fraud, without any real proof to back them up. His comments highlight the ongoing difficulty of fighting against false information and keeping people’s trust in the democratic process.

Besides his incorrect claim about winning California, Trump also used his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to repeat unfounded accusations about voting problems in important states like Pennsylvania and Georgia. While some people at the event supported what he said, others were upset because they think he’s too focused on what happened in the past instead of dealing with current problems the country faces.

Harming the democracy

People who don’t support Trump believe that by not accepting the 2020 election results, he’s harming democracy. They say this damages people’s faith in voting and causes division. These critics argue that Trump’s false statements about the election try to weaken the legitimacy of President Biden’s administration and harm the democratic principle of a peaceful change in government.

Despite Trump’s ongoing attempts to question the 2020 election’s validity, many independent checks, research, and legal decisions have confirmed the election was fair and affirmed Biden’s win.

Trump should focus on the future

Trump’s continued denial of his loss and his spreading of false information have sparked conspiracy theories and ongoing attacks on the democratic principles that support the country’s political framework. While the country is dealing with important problems like the post-COVID-19 era economic revival, Trump’s insistence on disputing the 2020 election results could shift attention away from solving these urgent issues.

Looking ahead, Trump’s presidency might be most remembered for his denial of facts and his efforts to weaken democratic structures for his own and his political advantage.
