Former President Donald Trump hung up on National Public Radio (NPR) host Steve Inskeep Tuesday after a contentious back-and-forth conversation about election integrity. 

Trump insists that the 2020 Presidential election was stolen; a point he tried to hammer home as Inskeep urged him to provide specific details that would help support his claim. 

“Is it a disadvantage for Republicans to keep talking about the 2020 election in 2022?” Inskeep asked after playing an audio clip of South Dakota Sen. Mike Rounds discussing the importance of not looking back. 

“No, I think it’s an advantage, because otherwise they’re going to do it again in ’22 and ’24,” Trump stated. “And Rounds is wrong on that, totally wrong. This was a corrupt election.”

Inskeep asked Trump about Doug Logan who was involved in efforts to overturn election results in Michigan and Arizona. According to Inskeep, Logan said he didn’t find any serious problems with the Arizona ballots. 

“The ballots may correspond but look at the ballots themselves,” said Trump. “The number of ballots doesn’t mean anything. It’s who signed the ballots, where did the ballots come from. What you really have to do in that report is look at the findings.” 

Inskeep then asked Trump why Republican officials in Arizona accepted the election results.  “Because they’re RINOs, and frankly, a lot of people are questioning that,” Trump stated. 

Trump ended the interview shortly after saying “the only way it’s not going to happen again is you have to solve the problem of the presidential rigged election of 2020.”
