Trump campaign ends voter fraud hotline after it's filled with prank calls

The Trump campaign has ended a hotline it established last week for people to report voter fraud allegations after the line was filled with prank calls.

The campaign established a conference room dedicated to the hotline where staffers could take the calls, CNN reported. However, unidentified sources told the outlet that many of the calls were spam or individuals mocking the hotline.

The campaign is establishing a website where users can submit voter fraud allegations.


ABC News reported last week that the hotline, which also directed callers to a voicemail box, was flooded with messages mocking the campaign in the wake of President-elect Joe BidenJoe BidenWarren calls for US to support ceasefire between Israel and Hamas UN secretary general 'deeply disturbed' by Israeli strike on high rise that housed media outlets Nation's largest nurses union condemns new CDC guidance on masks MORE winning the race for the White House.

The Associated Press and other news organizations projected that Biden won the presidential election on Saturday after he won key battleground states including Pennsylvania and Arizona.

The president has refused to concede to Biden and claimed without evidence that there was widespread fraud in the election. His campaign has also filed legal challenges to election results in swing states across the country, including Michigan and Pennsylvania.

The Hill has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment.
