Following President Trump’s false claim that he won the presidential election, Democratic Majority for Israel President and CEO Mark Mellman released this statement:

“Donald Trump doesn’t decide who won and lost. That’s up to the will of the people, as expressed through votes counted by local election officials. Every legal vote must be counted. We know that support for Democrats will increase as absentee ballots, properly cast by election day, are counted. As the leader of the world’s greatest democracy, a decent president would insist every legal vote be counted instead of denying Americans their right to vote, sowing division and creating confusion at every step during this election season.”
