Florida's election should be called in favor of Republicans Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis, as tensions continue to rise over the state's recount process, President Donald Trump said in a Monday morning tweet.

"The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged," Trump said. "An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!"

Trump's tweet came during a Fox News "Fox & Friends" segment featuring Olympic Media Managing Editor Katie Frates, who was on the program as a guest and stated that the focus must be on Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes.

"She has had a long, long history of accidents and mistakes," Frates said. "In 2016 she did this to a Democratic opponent, a challenger to Debbie Wasserman Schultz...this woman has a very long history in this county."

Further there are issues in Palm Beach County, where Elections Supervisor Susan Bucher  said Sunday that there is no way all the county's ballots can be counted before a Thursday afternoon deadline.

Frates added that she thinks there may be some "buyers' remorse" from Republicans, as Snipes was brought in to replace a supervisor over claims of improprieties," and Snipes "seems to be following in this exact same trend."

"I'm not sure why Republicans didn't focus on this beforehand," said Frates. "She has to go. Brenda Snipes cannot be overseeing anything in any county ever again."
