As election officials in Florida and Georgia claim to have found more ballots and seek recounts in races narrowly won by Republicans, President Donald Trump is joking Russia might be behind it – and claiming fraud. “You mean they are just now finding votes in Florida and Georgia – but the Election was on Tuesday? Let’s blame the Russians and demand an immediate apology from President Putin!” Trump tweeted on Friday morning, referring to the midterms in which candidates he backed narrowly prevailed in one Senate and two gubernatorial races. Democrats are demanding a recount in all three, however. The party has dispatched its top lawyer to Florida’s Broward County, where local officials insist they are still counting Tuesday’s ballots, and refuse to say how many remain to be counted.
