President Trump questioned why Wisconsin waited until after the election to cancel so many voter registrations. In a statement released on Saturday through his Save America PAC, the 45th president pointed out Wisconsin canceled 205,000 voter registrations because they could not locate the voters.
Wisconsin law has required election officials to identify and deactivate voters who have been absent from voting for a total of 4 years. Trump questioned why officials waited until after the election and asked if it meant he would have won the state.

Trump comments comes as the Chair of Wisconsin State Assembly’s election committee announced she was subpoenaing 2020 election materials in two large counties. This would include physical ballots and voting machines.
