Rudy Guiliani: Democrat-led cities with large Black populations led a centralized effort to commit voter fraud.

Trump's lawyer alleged that election fraud happened in cities with Black populations, but numbers show Trump made gains with his Black voter base.

Trump's lawyer alleged that election fraud happened in cities with Black populations, but numbers show Trump made gains with his Black voter base.While speaking at a press conference on Nov. 19, 2020, at the Republican National Convention headquarters, lawyer Rudy Giuliani stated that the cities election fraud happened in were mainly the big cities that were controlled by Democrats. He claimed voter fraud happened in Democratic cities with large Black populations. Detroit, Milwaukee, Atlanta, and Philadelphia were the cities that were pointed out by the Guiliani. He added that the pattern of election fraud is repeated in many states with corruption history, and he didn't have enough evidence to overturn the election.

President Donald Trump and his aides have repeatedly claimed that the election was rigged and there was widespread voter fraud in the country. Trump has attempted to discredit the electoral process on the grounds that expanded mail voting and the delays in counting caused in some states represent large-scale fraud. However, his claims have so far been unsubstantiated, and there has been no sign whatsoever of intentional, systematic, and widespread voter fraud.

No credible media organization has found widespread evidence of voter fraud. Trump and his aides have presented no actual evidence of "illegal" votes at all. The Trump campaign has also filed lawsuits in some key states, including Pennsylvania and Georgia. However, in many cases, the campaign is dropping lawsuits, or the court has dismissed their lawsuits.

In fact, according to AP VoteCast, Trump won 8 percent of the Black vote, a 2 percent hike from his 2016 numbers. Although over 90 percent of Black voters did choose Biden. Additionally, there is no evidence to suggest a concerted centralized effort was made to commit voter fraud and oust Trump from office.
