Talking with CBS This Morning Friday, U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., called President Donald Trump’s comments about a stolen election Thursday “very disturbing.”

On Thursday night Trump made false claims that Democrats were trying to “steal” the election.

Breaking with Trump, Toomey said, “The president’s speech last night was very disturbing to me because he made very, very serious allegations without any evidence to support it.”

Toomey continued, “I voted for President Trump. I endorsed President Trump. I want the next president to be the person who legitimately wins the Electoral College and I will accept the results.”

However, on ABC News with George Stephanopoulos, Toomey called the state’s Supreme Court “rogue” and said that there was a lack of transparency in Philadelphia vote counting.

Toomey also repeated Trump’s trope that “all the legal votes need to be counted.”
