Rhode Island's top elections official is criticizing Republican President Donald Trump's unsubstantiated claims about a rigged voting system and his pledge to order a "major investigation."

Democratic Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea said Wednesday it is "outrageous" for the president to make unsubstantiated claims about alleged widespread voter fraud.

Trump tweeted early Wednesday that he is ordering an investigation looking at those registered to vote in more than one state, those in the country illegally and dead people still on voter rolls.

Secretaries of state across the country have dismissed Trump's voter fraud claims as baseless.

Gorbea says Rhode Island has already taken steps to improve the security of voting systems. She says she regularly works with local elections authorities to make sure voting lists are accurate and updated.
