While many citizens were pleased about the outcome of the election with Joe Biden declared as the president-elect, some agree that President Donald Trump has every right to investigate if he chooses.

Wendy Williams suggested Trump’s request to investigate the election process was fair after he accused the process of involving fraud. Many are simply chalking it up to the president being a sore loser, but she felt he was within his rights.

“Donald Trump our president has every right to investigate,” says Williams while hosting her daytime series, The Wendy Williams Show, on Monday.  “If he feels like this election was stolen from him then, he has the right…”

The presidential election was called for former Vice President Biden over the weekend after days of uncertainty. However, Trump has been claiming voter fraud without evidence and says he is the actual winner of the 2020 election.

“I WON THIS ELECTION, BY A LOT!,” Trump claimed in the flagged tweet.                          

The President continued to tweet and repost articles that supported his claims from Breitbart News Network, a far right news and opinion website claiming there were multiple issues during the ballot count.

“Pennsylvania prevented us from watching much of the Ballot count. Unthinkable and illegal in this country,” Trump tweeted today.

Judges in two states rejected his campaign’s lawsuits, per The Washington Post. In Michigan a Court of Claims judge said she would deny Trump’s request to stop counting votes as Biden was already up by 150,000 when the request was made. In Georgia, a local judge in Chatham County denied Trump’s requests to disqualify 50 ballots that may have arrived after the 7 p.m. deadline.

But despite Trump’s claims even his allies say there is no evidence of fraud in the election process and his claims are baseless.

“There’s just no basis to make that argument tonight. There just isn’t,” said the former governor of New Jersey Chris Christie while on CNN. “All these votes have to be counted that are in now. Tonight, this was not the time to make this argument.” Christie is a Republican and has worked closely with Trump and even advised him on his presidential debates.

Williams says if Trump decides to move forward with pursuing an investigation, she only asked one thing.

“Just Mr. President if I could just ask one favor of you,” she said, looking directly into the camera, “on behalf of all of us, don’t hold the process up to much. We must move on with our lives.”
