President Trump is expected to sign an executive action on Thursday related to his calls for an investigation into allegations of voter fraud, press secretary Sean Spicer told journalists aboard Air Force One.

Trump has repeatedly questioned whether illegal ballots may have cost him the popular vote. After Trump reportedly lamented the possibility that voter fraud sapped his vote tally to lawmakers in a closed-door meeting earlier this week, Spicer clarified that Trump does indeed continue to believe that millions cast illegal ballots.

Trump is slated to sign executive actions Thursday afternoon upon returning from Philadelphia, where he traveled earlier in the day to deliver a speech at the annual GOP conference.

Spicer did not make clear what the executive action will do to address voter fraud.

Trump has frequently cited studies showing the number of incorrect voter registrations when discussing voter fraud.
