WASHINGTON - President-elect Donald Trump is lashing out on Twitter as he faces questions about his unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud.

On Monday night, Trump retweeted a series of messages that were critical of a CNN reporter who called the accusations "blatant and baseless."

He then tweeted that CNN "is so embarrassed by their total (100 support of Hillary Clinton, and yet her loss in a landslide, that they don't know what to do."

Trump has responded to a recount effort by arguing that illegal voting happened in the November election, but he has offered no proof. He has singled out Virginia, California and New Hampshire, but there has been no indication of widespread election tampering or voter fraud in those states or any others.
