Former President Donald Trump expresses its appreciation to The Washington Post for issuing a correction to a two-month story that claimed he urged Georgia election investigator Frances Watson to “find fraud.”
In a lengthy statement Monday afternoon, he said, “The Washington Post has just released a correction to the contents of an incorrectly reported phone call I had regarding voter fraud in the Great State of Georgia.”
“While I appreciate the Washington Post’s correction, which immediately makes the Georgia Witch Hunt non -story, the original story was a Hoax, right from the start,” he added.
“I appreciate more a solid investigation in Fulton County, Georgia, and in the political machine of Stacey Abrams that, I think, will completely change the course of the presidential election in Georgia.”
He goes on to claim that “the establishment of media mistakes, omissions, mistakes, and straight lies is always destructive in one way – against me and against Republicans.”
“A strong democracy requires a fair and honest journalism. This latest media travesty emphasizes that legacy media outlets should be considered as political entities-not journalistic businesses. In any event, I thank the Washington Post for the correction, “he said.

Trump’s comments came after the Post issued a correction to a story already initially claimed he urged Watson to “find the fraud,” and said he would be a “national hero” if he did.
Last week, The Wall Street Journal published audio of the call that showed Trump asking Watson to investigate fraud claims in Fulton County.
He told her, “When the right answer comes out, you will be praised.”
Moreover, he declared his belief that there was fraud that changed the election results as he said, “something bad happened.”
In a lengthy correction on Monday, the Post said:
“Two months after this story was published, Georgia’s secretary of state released an audio recording of President Donald Trump’s phone call in December with the state’s top election investigator. The record revealed that The Post erred in sequence of Trump’s comments on the call, based on information provided by a source.Trump did not tell the investigator to ‘find the fraud’ or say he would be ‘a national hero’ if he did.Instead, Trump urged the investigator to scrutinize the ballots in Fulton County, Ga., insisting he would find ‘dishonesty there.’ He also told him he had ‘the most important job in the country today.’ A story about recording can be found here. The headline and text of this story have been corrected to remove quotes that were incorrectly recorded on Trump. “
Despite Trump’s claims of fraud, election officials in Georgia said there is no evidence to substantiate his allegations.
Congress vote to prove President Joe Biden’s election win in early January.
