The person President Donald Trump has put in charge of looking into the millions he claims “voted illegally” was himself registered to vote in three states during last year’s election.

“When you look at the people that are registered, dead, illegal and two states, and some cases maybe three states, we have a lot to look into,” Trump said

He doubled-down on his response last week, tweeting, “Look forward to seeing final results of VoteStand. Gregg Phillips and crew say at least 3,000,000 votes were illegal. We must do better!” 

However, The Associated Press reports that Phillips was registered to vote in Alabama, Texas and Mississippi. The voting records and election officials show that he voted in Alabama last year.

Although he has lived in all three of the states, the reports show that Phillips’ status was “inactive” in Mississippi and suspended in Texas. However, officials said there’s a possibility that Phillips voted in all three states by producing identification and updating his address at the polls.

When reporters reached out to Phillips about the multiple registrations, he said he was unaware and followed up by asking, “Why would I know or care?”
