President Trump on Saturday accused the Arizona attorney general of spending too much time self-promoting and not enough time supports "the great Republican Patriots in the Arizona state Senate" who are conducting an audit of the 2020 presidential election that Trump lost. 

Trump said in a statement Attorney General Mark Brnovich "never mentions the Crime of the Century, that took place during the 2020 Presidential Election, which was Rigged and Stolen" while he is "on television promoting himself."

The statement is similar to numerous, similar ones Trump has made about losing last year's election because of widespread voting fraud.

The Republican-controlled Arizona Senate has order an audit of election results in the state's Maricopa County. Trump in 2020 lost the once-GOP-reliable county and state.

Below is the full statement:

"The lackluster Attorney General of Arizona, Mark Brnovich, has to get on the ball and catch up with the great Republican Patriots in the Arizona State Senate. As massive crime in the 2020 Election is becoming more and more evident and obvious, Brnovich is nowhere to be found. He is always on television promoting himself, but never mentions the Crime of the Century, that took place during the 2020 Presidential Election, which was Rigged and Stolen. Arizona was a big part and Brnovich must put himself in gear, or no Arizona Republican will vote for him in the upcoming elections. They will never forget, and neither will the great Patriots of our Nation!"
