There has been no evidence of widespread election fraud in the November 8 presidential contest, the White House said on Monday in reaction to US President-elect Donald Trump’s tweet over the weekend alleging millions of illegal votes and fraud in three states.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest, speaking to reporters at a daily briefing, deferred comments on Trump’s specific tweets to the president-elect’s team, but added: “What I can say, as an objective fact, is that there has been no evidence produced to substantiate a claim like that.”
