Pranksters Flood Trump Campaign Voter Fraud Hotline

Prank callers, inspired by anti-Trump TikTok campaigns, have been peppering the Trump campaign's voter fraud hotline, sources told ABC News.

The hotline was set up to find instances of voter fraud for the campaign to cobble together as it plans its election Hail Mary in the courts this week. Instead, it has become a sounding board for gloating Joe Biden voters, per the report.

The campaign call center in the Arlington, Virginia, headquarters has been fielding hundreds of calls a day and is run by campaign staffers whose contracts are running out in a few days.

The callers are mostly laughing or mocking over Biden's claim of victory before hanging up.

TikTok has been pointed to as theoriginator of the campaign calls after the China-connected social media network successfully sabotaged a Trump campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma,  last June by requesting thousands of tickets to the event they never intended to attend.

The disappointing turnout was then used to mock the Trump campaign and its officials in viral videos.
