President Donald Trump urged Florida to declare Republicans Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis as the victors in elections for the Senate and governorship respectively. The president also suggested that the election was tainted by fraud which will taint the results of the ongoing recounts in both races.

“The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged,” Trump wrote on Twitter on the morning of Nov. 12. “An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!”

Florida was conducting a machine recount of more than 8 million votes on Nov. 12, which was triggered over the weekend after the margins for victory for both Scott and DeSantis were lower than 0.5 percent. If the machine recounts result in a margin of less than 0.25 percent in either race, a manual recount will follow.
