Trump cancels news conference in which he was expected to provide 'irrefutable' evidence of election fraud in 2020

The press conference that former President Donald Trump had planned for next week at his Bedminster estate to reveal evidence of fraud in Georgia during the 2020 presidential election has been canceled, as the New York Post reported.

On Thursday night, the legally embattled frontrunner for the Republican nomination in 2024 announced via Truth Social that he was canceling the press conference after consulting with his legal team.

Trump's Comments

Earlier in the week, Trump claimed he would present an "irrefutable" study on election fraud in Georgia at his New Jersey golf club, Trump National Golf Club, on Monday morning.

“My lawyers would prefer putting this, I believe, Irrefutable & Overwhelming evidence of Election Fraud & Irregularities in formal Legal Filings as we fight to dismiss this disgraceful Indictment by the publicity and campaign finance seeking D.A., who sadly presides over a record breaking Murder & Violent Crime area, Atlanta,” Trump wrote.

“Therefore, the News Conference is no longer necessary!”

On Monday, a Georgia grand jury indicted the 77-year-old former president on 13 counts for allegedly breaking the law while trying to stay in power after losing the previous election to Democrat Joe Biden.

Trump is facing charges for allegedly breaking the anti-racketeering legislation in the state of Georgia, as well as for conspiracy, making false statements, and urging a public person to break their oath of office.

Hours after his indictment, Trump declared on Truth Social that he will be holding a press conference.

All accusations "should be dropped against me & others," he wrote in an earlier post, promising "complete EXONERATION!"

More Case Details

There was a total of 19 defendants announced on Monday, and they included members of Trump's inner circle.

Trump has claimed the election was rigged against him, but his claims have been disproven by the courts, state reviews, and even some members of his own administration.

In addition to the two federal prosecutions initiated by Special Counsel Jack Smith, Trump is also facing a Manhattan district attorney's case brought by Alvin Bragg.
