(AP) – Donald Trump is warning again about voter fraud – but has a solution for his supporters.

The Republican nominee once again said there is widespread voter fraud, a claim for which he has produced no evidence.

But he told supporters at a rally Monday in Grand Rapids that they should “get out and vote by the millions and we won’t have to worry about what is taking place behind the scenes.”

Trump made his pitch during a foray into Democrat-leaning Michigan. The state hasn’t gone for a Republican since 1988, but may prove essential for Trump’s electoral map.

Several studies suggest that voter fraud is extremely rare. Trump’s warning in Michigan came a day after he criticized the mail-in voting system in Colorado, suggesting that it is ripe for fraud.

The Republican candidate is also seizing on the ongoing flap over Hillary Clinton’s private email server. He says that she “is not the victim, the American people are the victims.”

Trump said Clinton “broke the law over and over again.” He claims that she lied to the FBI and destroyed evidence on her phone and emails.

Clinton has not been charged with any wrongdoing. The FBI declined to recommend charges this summer over her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. But it is now looking at emails found on the computer of Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of a top aide to Clinton.

It is not yet known if those emails are connected to Clinton.
