President Trump on Saturday fired back at testy state officials irked at a federal request for voter-registration data.
“Numerous states are refusing to give information to the very distinguished VOTER FRAUD PANEL,”Trump tweeted. “What are they trying to hide?”
At least 24 states have refused to fully comply with the request for voter data that includes partial Social Security numbers, addresses, birth dates, party affiliation, voting history and military status.
Even some of Trump’s fellow Republicans are annoyed.
“They can go jump in the Gulf of Mexico,” Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, a Republican, said of the request issued Wednesday by the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.
