#Tom Ridge calls Trump’s attempt to falsely claim victory ‘un-American’

A former Pennsylvania Gov. said. Tom Ridge, a Republican, said Wednesday that President Trump’s efforts to prevent votes from being counted in Pennsylvania and Michigan were “un-American” and “wrong.”

“I am grateful and truly grateful that so many Republicans, so many conservative Republicans, dismissed your comments as inappropriate, I say non-Americans, because to a degree you are trying to disenfranchise not only millions of Pennsylvania residents, but also to millions of voters in Michigan and Wisconsin and Nevada and elsewhere, ”said Ridge.

“So Mr. President, I was wrong,” said Ridge, who was secretary of homeland security during George W. Bush’s presidency.
