President Donald Trump on Sunday called the 2020 presidential election results "the greatest fraud in the history of our country from an electoral standpoint."

During a call-in interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures," Trump remained defiant in his insistence that he won the election, despite President-elect Joe Biden's decisive 306-232 Electoral College victory.

Among his list of grievances, the president went on a tirade against the media, saying they did not want to investigate allegations of fraud with the election, despite extensive coverage of the many lawsuits that he's filed alleging voter irregularities and a lack of any verifiable evidence that would indicate mass voter fraud.

"The media doesn't want to cover it," he said. "You're actually very brave. The media doesn't want to talk about it. They know how fraudulent this is."

Trump then pivoted to discussing Hunter Biden, the son of the president-elect, who has long been the target of Trump and other conservatives who insisted that he was conducting secret business affairs with the Ukrainian government while the president-elect was still the vice president.

"It's no different than Hunter," Trump said. "They don't want to talk about Hunter."

While many conservatives have latched onto debunked allegations of corruption regarding the president-elect and Hunter Biden for years now, there has been no clear evidence of any sort of wrongdoing.

Trump again came back to his long-running bashing of the US media, tying it in with his widely debunked allegations of mass voter fraud in the presidential race.

"We don't have freedom of the press in this country," he said. "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's bigger than this? This is the essence of our country. This is the whole ballgame, and they cheated."

While Trump and his allies continue to pursue litigation against the election results, Biden is filling out his Cabinet, having received transition funds from the federal government on November 23 after the General Services Administration "ascertained" the president-elect's win.
