Maryland Republican Gov. Larry Hogan took to Twitter to condemn the comments Trump made during a Thursday night press conference, saying there is “no defense” of the president’s “undermining of our Democratic process.”
“America is counting the votes, and we must respect the results as we always have before,” he said. “No election or person is more important than our Democracy.”

During the White House briefing, the first since he preemptively declared himself the winner of the presidential election, Trump claimed the election was being rigged. Trump said he would ultimately win the election and promised to use legal means to make it happen.
“If you count the legal votes, I easily win,” Trump said. “If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us.”
Hogan’s tweet follows previous comments he made Wednesday ripping into Trump after the president stated he would challenge the election in court, which the governor dubbed “outrageous” and “uncalled for.”
