Donald Trump has challenged newspaper editors and politicians to a debate on his unfounded claims of widespread election fraud during the 2020 presidential election.

In a typically bullish statement, shared via email on Sunday, former President Trump complained "the fake news media" had demeaned what he called "the real results" of the election.

Former President Trump said he would relish the opportunity to debate the claims of election fraud and said it would be "a ratings bonanza."

In the statement, Trump added: "I am willing to challenge the heads of the various papers or even far-left politicians, who have perpetuated the Real Big Lie, which is voter irregularities and fraud on a massive and determinative scale

"This includes members of the highly partisan Unselect Committee of Democrats who refuse to delve into what caused the January 6th protest—it was the fake election results.

The statement continued: "While I am willing to do it, they will never agree because they cannot argue that facts in states including Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, Nevada, New Hampshire, and others such as New Mexico, where the Democrat Secretary of State changed the voting laws without legislative approval just prior to the election, making it virtually impossible for the Republican presidential candidate to win.

"If anyone would like a public debate on the facts, not the fiction, please let me know. It will be a ratings bonanza for television."
