Trump's Remarks Before Marine One Departure; September 24, 2020


Remarks by President Trump Before Marine One Departure

Issued on: September 24, 2020

South Lawn
3:05 P.M. EDT


Q Mr. President, are the election results only legitimate if you win?

THE PRESIDENT: So we have to be very careful with the ballots. The ballots — that’s a whole big scam. You know, they found, I understand, eight ballots in a waste paper basket in some location. And they found — it was reported in one of the newspapers that they found a lot of ballots in a river. They throw them out if they have the name “Trump” on it, I guess. But they had ballots.

Q They had no names on them, they said.

THE PRESIDENT: Okay, well, they still found them in a river, whether they had a name on it or not. But the other ones had the “Trump” name on it, and they were thrown into a waste paper basket.

We want to make sure the election is honest, and I’m not sure that it can be. I don’t know that it can be with this whole situation — unsolicited ballots. They’re unsolicited; millions being sent to everybody. And we’ll see.

But if you remember, Hillary Clinton, just a week ago or so, told Joe Biden, “Do not expect the results of the election under any circumstances.” But you don’t ask her that question; you only ask me the question.

Yeah, go ahead.


Q Sir, you have been nominated for Nobel Peace Prize for Middle East peace. Sir, you have been nominated for Nobel Peace Prize for Middle East — the historic deal that you have done. Does — your global foreign policy also checkmates China. It stops them from increasing the defense of China globally.

THE PRESIDENT: Well, it was an honor to be nominated for two Nobel Prizes. So that was an honor. And we’ll see what’s happening. I know that China now, and India, are having difficulty, and very — very substantial difficulty. And hopefully they’ll be able to work that out. If we can help, we’d love to help.

Q Mr. President, how did you feel about some of the chanting that was going on outside the Supreme Court: “Vote you out” and fulfill — “Uphold her wish”?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think that was just a political chant. I could — we could hardly hear it from where we were. Somebody said there was some chanting. But they were right next to the media. But we really could hardly hear too much. We heard a sound, but it wasn’t very strong.

Q What do you think the peaceful protesters are fighting for?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think the peaceful protesters — number one, it’s fine to do that in a peaceful manner. But when it gets least — when it gets less than peaceful, as you see all over, then it’s unacceptable, and that’s where law and order is necessary, and that’s where law enforcement is very important.

Q But what are they fighting for?

THE PRESIDENT: Jennifer, go ahead.

Q You didn’t answer my question, though. (Inaudible.)

Q Susan Collins —

THE PRESIDENT: Jennifer, go ahead.

Q You didn’t answer my question. What are they fighting for?

Q Susan Collins, would you — are you endorsing Susan Collins in her race for U.S. Senate in Maine? Are you endorsing Republican Susan Collins?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, we’re speaking with a lot of people about that. I’m doing very well in Maine. You’ve seen the numbers. What I’ve done for Maine is what nobody has done. I have freed up 5,000 square miles of ocean that was taken away by President Obama. And for the lobster — the people that go out and get us those great lobsters that we all like so much, I freed that whole business up, and the fishermen too — we freed it up. So it’s — I think I’ve done more for Maine than just about anybody, certainly in many, many years.

So I’m doing very well in Maine. I don’t know — I haven’t seen polls on Susan, but I hope she does well. Thank you.
