Donald Trump’s press secretary gets crowd size wrong again as golfing President refuses to give up power
After Mr Trump’s first press secretary Sean Spicer falsely claimed the President had the biggest ever inauguration crowd, Ms McEnany claimed a million hit the streets.

The Washington Post and Sky News reporters on the ground estimate it is more likely a few thousand people attended.

This fact didn’t stop Ms McEnany tweeting there were a million people marching for the President. 

The President drove past the crowds in a motorcade giving supporters the thumbs up before hitting the golf course.

After a slow drive around Freedom Plaza, where the pro-Trump rallies began, the motorcade headed to the president’s Virginia golf club.

The “Million Maga March” was heavily promoted on social media, raising concerns that it could spark conflict with anti-Trump demonstrators, who have gathered near the White House in Black Lives Matter Plaza for weeks.

The issues that Trump’s campaign and its allies have pointed to are typical in every election: problems with signatures, secrecy envelopes and postal marks on mail-in ballots, as well as the potential for a small number of ballots being miscast or lost.

With Mr Biden leading Mr Trump by wide margins in key battleground states, none of those issues would have any impact on the outcome of the election.

Mr Trump’s campaign has also filed legal challenges complaining that their poll watchers were unable to scrutinise the voting process.

Many of those challenges have been dismissed by judges, some within hours of their filing.

Kayleigh McEnany gave a press conference in Washington DC on Monday in which she repeated Mr Trump’s baseless claims about a stolen election as she accused the Democrats of “welcoming” fraud and illegal voting.

“We want every legal vote to be counted,” said Ms McEnany in her opening statement.

Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto then cut the broadcast short and sought to clarity the nature of her remarks.

He said: “Whoa, whoa, whoa. I think we have to be very clear.

“She is charging that the other side is welcoming fraud and welcoming illegal voting. Unless she has more details to back that up, I can’t in good countenance continuing showing you this.”
