Trump tweet mistakenly alleges nationwide voting issues

Story highlights

Trump tweeted about CNN's coverage of Utah voting machine problems

But he wrote "country" instead of "county"

Tapper: "It's the difference of an "r" but kind of an important one"

CNN  — 

When Donald Trump misquoted CNN in a tweet, Jake Tapper took him to task live on air.

After the Republican presidential candidate incorrectly tweeted that Utah officials were reporting voting machine problems across the “entire country,” Tapper issued a fact-check.

“In point of fact, CNN is not reporting that,” Tapper said. “The problem is ‘problems across the county.’ A county, not the country, as Mr Trump tweeted. It’s the difference of an ‘r’, but kind of an important one.”
