Trump says 'you may never even know' who won the election if we proceed with mail-in voting

Published 1 min ago on July 30, 2020
By Matthew Chapman




At Thursday’s coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump was asked if he stands by his tweet that he might have to delay the election over mail-in voting — which he has no power to do. Trump disavowed the tweet, saying “I don’t want to delay, I want to have the election,” but went on a long rant once again attacking mail-in voting and falsely claiming it will lead to widespread fraud.

He complained that there were problems with the voting system in New York, and “I don’t want to wait months, really, if you potentially did it right, years … these ballots go missing.” He added that “you may never even know” who won the election if we proceed with mail-in ballots.

He added that “We talk about Russia, Russia, Russia,” and investigators “found nothing” on him, but fraudulently voting is “much easier” — which is completely untrue on multiple levels. And he also claimed that his own use of mail-in ballots to vote in Florida is fine because, “absentee is different, you have to work for applications.” (There is no legal distinction between mail-in and absentee ballots.)

1. "You may never even know..."

“...because I’m declaring martial law and canceling the election on November 2nd. You can’t ever know who won an election if it never takes place. See?”

6. Right?

I've been expecting one of those for the past three years.
Every morning, I get up and first thing I do is check my phone to see if it happened.

And every day I'm pissed and disappointed.

3. So that's what he's planning to do, huh?

Well, now that we've been warned, let's hope the Dems get on top of this early and game plan Trump's possible actions in advance.

5. Hey, Trump

I can tell you right now that you're going to lose the election in a huge landslide. It won't even be close.

All of your crying and whining won't change a thing.

Loser.

7. Can we please stop with the he's going to cancel the election!!

Not only does he NOT have the ability to do that, he’s been totally rebuked by McCarthy & turtle saying the election will go forward on 11/3.

9. In California

not 100% vote by mail but more than half of voters use it - county election officials have 30 days after election day to get their certified totals in to the Secretary of State. The SoS maintains a daily tally of outstanding ballots by county so everyone can see who's on their toes. Close contests - less than 2% difference IIRC - trigger an automatic recount (and at least in my county spot recounts are done in random contests to make sure things are going right). And we have very long ballots. Yet, somehow, we always manage to get the results counted, checked, and certified by the deadline, despite several counties having more registered voters than some states.

There may be some Congressional races that won't be decided for a few weeks, but we'll know most of the results on election day: the big question will be, how badly will Donnie lose?
