President Donald Trump's four-year history of undermining American rights and legal norms is fittingly ending with his attack on one of the most fundamental: the right to vote.

President-elect Joe Biden, to be sure, has called out Trump's baseless moves to erode public confidence in the election results.

When he was asked on Thursday what message Trump's refusal to concede sends to Americans, Biden replied, "I think they're witnessing incredible irresponsibility, incredibly damaging messages being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy functions.

Trump has repeatedly targeted the majority-Black city of Detroit, writing baselessly on Twitter on Thursday, "Voter Fraud in Detroit is rampant, and has been for many years!"

"The only way you will stop the violence in the high crime Democrat run cities is through strength," Trump said.

Among those incensed by Trump's remarks was Biden, who said they helped prompt his presidential run against Trump.

Biden said Trump's description of "fine people" on both sides "assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it. "

Trump repeatedly criticized the FBI's role in investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election, pushing a discredited claim that the FBI spied on his campaign.

Now, Trump's focus is on the people who counted ballots this month.
