NEW YORK -- U.S. President Donald Trump's campaign is unhappy with the lack of support among Republican lawmakers for its claim that the election is being "stolen" by rival Joe Biden's Democratic Party.

The president, trailing Biden in election delegates, has repeatedly asserted that the Democrats are trying to "rig" the election. But Republican lawmakers have largely remained silent, except for top allies siding with the president and a few others publicly rebuking him.
