2020 Election

‘I don’t believe that’s by our laws,’ Trump says of counting all the votes in an election

Published

on

Repeating his desire for a winner to be declared on the night of November 3, President Donald Trump told reporters Tuesday that he doesn't "believe" tallying votes for weeks after Election Day is lawful, a remark observers interpreted as yet another open signal of the president's intention to challenge the counting of legally submitted ballots.

"Donald Trump is planning to everything he can to make sure your vote doesn't count."—Indivisible"It would be very, very proper and very nice if a winner were declared on November 3, instead of counting ballots for two weeks, which is totally inappropriate, and I don't believe that that's by our laws," Trump said before departing the White House for a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan.

Retired United States Army lieutenant general H.R. McMaster chatted with Axios co-founder Mike Allen Wednesday about how President Donald J. Trump's "rigged" election talk could be playing right into Russian President Vladimir Putin's hands.

"This is what my friend and national security adviser used to call Putin's implausible deniability. It's very important to criticize the failures of policy and actions by the president, by others, in getting Putin his space ... I criticize both political parties because what we see is a tendency for leaders within both parties to compromise our principles as Americans for partisan critical advantage. That's one of the ways Putin plays us. We have to stop doing that and I think President Trump has not helped our cause by raising doubts about what is super obvious."

There were 100 million eligible voters in 2016 who didn't vote then, and they are the largest bloc of voters who could shift the election if they got to the polls

The top county with the most non-voters is McDowell County, West Virginia. The state is also the lowest-voting state in the country. Interviewing some of the residents there, NBC News' Morgan Radford said that President Donald Trump won the county with about 4,000 votes to Hillary Clinton's over 1,000 votes. There were 11,000 people who didn't vote at all.

As they head to the polls this year, they're still just as discouraged as they were before.
