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

Published

on

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.)

Stuart Stevens is a veteran Republican campaign operative from five presidential races. When he spoke to PBS's Judy Woodruff Wednesday, he lamented the GOP failed the moral test it was presented with Donald Trump.

Call it an Eisenhower strain going back to the '50s and a McCarthy strain," Stevens said, recalling when the GOP would talk about expanding their party and bringing in more African-American voters. "Now we don't even hear any talk anymore of a big tent. And we seem to have settled into a very comfortable white grievance identity."

Former Trump ambassador tells Rachel Maddow ‘it’s a big red flag’ that Trump is trying to hide investigation of Turnberry scam

Published

Former acting ambassador to the U.K., Lewis Lukens, told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow that the inspector general raised questions to him and embassy staff in the U.K. about President Donald Trump's demand for the ambassador to lobby for the British Open to be hosted at Trump's golf course in Scotland.

According to Lukens, he told those questioning how to go about getting the British Open at Trump Turnberry, and Lukens said he was clear that it was "unethical" and "possibly illegal." Still, Trump's cronies persisted.

He explained that when the inspector general did the investigation they went back to Washington to write up the report and that it should have been released by now, but it obviously has not. Today, the acting IG, who took over just three months ago, abruptly resigned.
