At his final press conference on Wednesday, President Obama claimed “this whole notion of voting fraud, this is something that has constantly been disproved.”
He went on to call voter fraud fake news.
Obama made his feelings known about what he thinks really caused the voting problems in this country:
Obama said, “That’s not who we are, and that shouldn’t be who we are. That’s not when America works best.”
Obama stressed that America should be making it easier to vote than it already is and said, “The idea that we put in place a whole bunch of barriers to people voting doesn’t make sense.”
Watch him speak about the topic:
