Trump claims mail-in voting could lead to not knowing election result, suggests moving voting day
The President invited the Americans to personally come to the polls on November 3 or to use absentee ballots
President Donald Trump reiterated on Friday that expanding mail-order voting could turn the presidential election in November into “the greatest electoral disaster in history.” Trump said this while talking to reporters outside the White House before his trip to Florida..
“They think they’ll send hundreds of millions of ballots all over the United States and something will come of it,” Trump told reporters. “You will not know the election results for weeks, maybe [it will] years later. You may never know the outcome of an election. This is what worries me – rigging, falsification. People should grow wiser “.
President invited Americans to vote in person or use absentee ballots.
“This will be the greatest electoral disaster in history,” Trump added. “And by the way, you love to talk about Russia, China and other countries. They will be able to fake ballots. They will do whatever it takes. “.
Trump stressed that he wants the election to take place and said his administration is working to address the issue, warning that the government is “not prepared for the onslaught of millions of ballots.”.
“Absentee ballots – excellent. It’s great to come to the polls. But if you do universal mailing of millions and millions of ballots, you will never know the real outcome of the election. It will be a very sad day for our country, “Trump said..
Trump cannot change election date without congressional approval, and bipartisan leaders have already indicated they will strongly oppose the idea of postponing the voting date..
Trump criticized Barack Obama, who on Thursday accused the incumbent of persecuting minorities and attacking voters’ rights.
“He [Obama] has failed with minorities. I did much more for minorities than he did, ”Trump said.
The president also confirmed that his administration is considering banning the popular video app TikTok, which is owned by China-based ByteDance..
“We are looking at TikTok, we can ban TikTok. We can do a number of other things, there are a couple of options … With regard to TikTok, we are exploring many alternatives, ”said Trump.
