WASHINGTON, D.C. – The following statement by Trump advisor Stephen Miller on ABC News “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos thrust New Hampshire back into the national spotlight for persistent accusations made by President Trump in the aftermath of Election 2016, that widespread voter fraud caused him – and former U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-NH – to lose in New Hampshire.

The exchange came after several minutes on other issues, including immigration and Trump’s ties to Russia.

Miller’s statement on NH voter fraud, from a transcript of the segment:

“The White House has provided enormous evidence with respect to voter fraud, with respect to people being registered in more than one state, dead people voting, non-citizens being registered to vote. George, it is a fact and you will not deny it, that there are massive numbers of non-citizens in this country, who are registered to vote. That is a scandal.

We should stop the presses. And as a country, we should be aghast about the fact that you have people who have no right to vote in this country, registered to vote, canceling out the franchise of lawful citizens of this country.

That’s the story we should be talking about. And I’m prepared to go on any show, anywhere, anytime, and repeat it and say the President of the United States is correct 100 percent.”

Stephanopoulos ended the segment by pressing Miller for evidence.

“You can start by providing evidence to back up your claims. Thanks for joining us this morning,” Stephanopoulos said.

Below, some of the reaction from social media following the Sunday morning program:
