( - "This election was rigged. This election was a total fraud," President Donald Trump told "Sunday Morning Futures" with Maria Bartiromo. He placed much of the blame on a media "that doesn't even want to cover it."

The media doesn't want to talk about it. They know how fraudulent this is. It's no different than Hunter. It's no different than Hunter. They don't want to talk about Hunter, so they totally closed it off, Big Tech and the media, other than The New York Post, as you remember, which took a lot of heat...

"But it's a situation, the likes of which -- we don't have freedom of the press in this country. We have suppression by the press. They suppress. You can't have a scandal if nobody reports about it.

"This is the greatest fraud in the history of our country, from an electoral standpoint...What's bigger from an electoral standpoint? What is bigger than this? This is the essence of our country. This is the whole ball game. And they cheated."

Trump said "everybody" thought the election was over, ending with a Trump victory, by 10 p.m. on election night. "And then the phony -- then the phony mail-ins started coming in, Maria...Glitches started happening."

Trump repeated that the election was "rigged."

He also criticized judges who have ruled against his legal team, in some cases, for lack of standing:

Well, we're trying to put the evidence in. And the judges won't allow us to do it.

We are trying. We have so much evidence. We -- you probably saw, on Wednesday of last week, we had a hearing in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. It was an incredible hearing, unbelievable witnesses, highly respected people, that were truly aggrieved.

A woman came in, and she wanted to vote, and they said, no, I'm sorry you can't vote. You have already voted. Your ballot is in. And she said, no, no, I want to vote on November 3. I have been waiting for so long to vote. I'm so proud. I want to vote. They said, your ballot is in. I'm sorry. And that was the story. And she was aggrieved.

And you have many people like that, many, many people like that, at a level that nobody would even believe. And that's where it is, Maria. That's -- that's one story. By the way, that's one story out of so many different stories.

Trump also pointed to poll watchers who weren't allowed to watch the vote counting in progress.

"They threw them out of the counting rooms. They weren't allowed to be in. They threw them outside in many cases," as "new ballots came in."

"We have pictures and we have evidence of new ballots being brought into counting rooms," Trump said:

Maria, there's never been anything like this in history. And it all started with the mail-in. But it also goes to Dominion (voting system). It goes to a lot of things. But the mail-in, millions and millions of ballots being shipped all over, and ballots -- as you know, there were a lot of ballots where it was just Biden on top. They didn't do anything else, because they were in a rush.

And from what everybody is saying, and from what -- I don't think we even have to prove this. They say that I was doing so much better than they thought that they panicked, and they started just doing ballot after ballot very quickly and just checking the Biden name on top. They didn't have time.

So, you have all these ballots with just one name checked. People don't vote that way. People don't vote that way.

Trump said much of the problem involved mail-in voting: "What kind of an election is this? What kind of a country are we living in now, where you can vote for months ahead of schedule?" he asked.

He said some of the late-arriving ballots were "backdated” -- "and we have affidavits on that, too."

“I look at what's going on. It's so terrible. But what happened in this election, Maria, I can't imagine has ever happened before. They stuffed the ballot boxes.

“You know, I have been hearing that expression for many years. You have too, stuffed the ballot -- they stuffed the ballot boxes. And they used COVID as a means to stuff the ballot boxes,” Trump said.
