Trump Hints at Delaying Election due to ‘Fraudulent’ Mail-In Voting

Trump Rally

President Trump tweeted on Thursday morning that the fraud associated with mail-in voting could delay the election until people can safely and securely vote.

According to The Daily Wire:

President Donald Trump suggested delaying elections over the pandemic on Thursday.

Trump said that an election conducted by mail-in voting would lead to the “most INNACURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history.” The president has warned against Democratic calls for greatly expanding the absentee voting system for weeks, asserting that U.S. elections would be exponentially more vulnerable to fraud and abuse.

Trump’s Thursday morning tweet is the first time he has suggested delaying the election over the pandemic. The president has previously been a proponent for reopening after state’s issued strict lockdown orders following the outbreak of the coronavirus in the United States in March.

On Wednesday, Trump tweeted out a video of CBS News conducting an experiment in mail-in voting. “CBS News This Morning” co-host Tony Dokoupil sent out two batches of 100 mock ballots from different locations around Philadelphia and found that, even in his small experiment, some went missing.

The President of the United States does not have the authority to delay the election. The date the electoral college meets cannot be changed unless a law is passed by Congress. With Congress being controlled by both parties it is unlikely that this would happen.

A presidential election has never been delayed in the United States including during the Civil War and both World Wars.

Any person can see that mail in voting will be a farce. We already have dead people voting. Animals voting. I feel there will be a civil war.

News Flash:
There already IS a civil war. However, so far, only one side is attacking.

The other side is talking about how unhappy they are to be attacked, but remaining civil and law abiding while expecting their government to protect them from the side attacking them and their Constitutional Freedoms..

What I believe you are thinking is the side that has so far, remained peaceful, will take up arms and fight back finally..

In this Country, there an estimated 39,000,000 privately owned firearms, and an estimated 90 Trillion rounds of ammunition, most of that owned by the side now being attacked.

Should that threshold of abuse be met, where the side being attacked feels that the government will not and has not protected them from lawless attack, how do you thing it will evolve?

Which side would YOU wish to be affiliated with?

So true! the problem is President Trump cannot cal our military in because the democrats will not let that happen. The Constitution says Congress must approve and as long as Pelosi and her bunch of socialists are around it will never happen. Best to get rid of those standing in our way, the democrats in DC!

Actually Trump can declare Martial Law and Congress wouldn’t have a Damn thing to say about it. A lot of you should really try reading the US Constitution and Bill of Rights; to learn what the President can and can’t do. And Trump should have declared Martial Law after a week of those riots starting. Those who also claim that they would fight back, when.? Cops and Innocent People are Being Killed. Cities are being burned down. So what is it going to take for you to act.? Those Federal Cops are Failing; Incase you haven’t been watching. The Democrats are lying about it in their hearings. From where I sit; there are a lot of Republicans and Conservatives that are Cowards, and afraid of the Mob to act. Even though we supposedly outnumber them(this mob). And those Mayors and Governors can be force ably removed from their jobs; if they are failing in their duties. There are a lot of things that could be done; all of you are just to scared to do it, as is Trump. He’s handing Biden the White House. Also how is Biden able to run for President; with what he did in regards to Ukraine and China.? Why hasn’t William Barr arrested him, before now.?

I fully agree and why is soreass aloud to pay for rioting Antifa letting prisoners out early and so much more just to create havoc. Why are all these ppl shifty pilosey waters there are lots of them fighting the president and being paid to do so. Why are they all getting away with it. All I can say is a big civil war is coming. The ppl are tired of standing by and watching them get away with murder yes murder. Who let the virus out gee I wonder. The same ppl who cud care less if you live or die the same ppl who only care about money and power. The same ppl who are getting away with everything it’s like the law doesn’t matter and they are never convicted. Ppl they are all on the take and have been. What else can it be???? Ppl are fed up watch and see.

Great idea !! You have to know that the mail-in BS is as crooked as the clintons,obamas and the whole demoSCUM party. Only military personnel should be allowed mail-in ballots and they be carefully supervised and counted. Everyone SHOULD KNOW BY NOW the demoSCUM have millions of illegals ready to vote ILLEGALLY !!!!!!!

There is no reason for mail in voting! That is why ABSENTEE BALLOTS exist, and EARLY Voting! Open Early Voting up and allow them to stay open in order to prevent crowds and the spread of COVID-19. China and Democrats are doing everything possible to defeat President Trump from Re-election and we have seen how they use mail in votes to pad the results in California and other liberal states. More votes than on the roll, don’t tell us it doesn’t happen.

Not ONE actual expert has found a way to make FRAUD in mail-in voting even difficult — much less impossible. The same is true of software experts opinion of “voting machine” integrity, BTW. It is IMPOSSIBLE to make a voting machine that cannot be manipulated — hence the experts say that the ONLY way to have a SAFE election with voting machines is if they produce a human readable BALLOT which is then placed in the ballot box.

If a re-count is needed, those ballots — not the machine tally — would count. The total votes would have to match the machine total, to prevent “added” ballots.

Voting should have to be in person except of course for military abroad or possibly for severely disabled who can not leave their homes. Voter ID is a must and no more computers of any kind. We have all heard of people voting for one candidate only to have the vote recorded for the other candidate —– almost always the democrat! There are also instances where an entire precinct voted democrat ——- REALLY?! I heard that Soros supplied many of the voting machines in past elections. If true, how crazy is that! With computers, elections can be rigged just as the slot machines in casinos are rigged.

Yep, paper ballots, in person, with verified ID. No machines, no mail-in ballot harvesting, no voting without verified ID, no criminal invaders voting. Absentee ballots are good for military and others who are out of the country or are stationed away from their home state. It’s really easy to get it done, but of course the evil Dims don’t want easy.

Yep. I have worked the precinct voting here in Williamsburg NM. We do a physical count 3 times to confirm the machine count then seal all the ballots in a packet with all workers signatures and the head of the workers, (our case the Mayor) delivers the packet to the County where it, with others are put into a safe for the night. Not much chance for fraud except illegal registered.

Are you serious? No one is going to lose their job because we don’t allow mail in votes. No way to make them safe. No way to insure that a citizen is the one doing the voting since they mail to everyone (and in some cases, the wrong ballot). This is not the postmaster general’s problem. When they find missing boxes of ballots (all blue) when the count is going against them, you don’t think it’s fraud? The dems keep blocking the use of voter ID; maybe a passport should be required to show you are a citizen; the government can reduce the price to make it affordable for everyone. There is your fool proof voter ID (yes, there are people who forge passports, but not that many)

Now when the Constitution specifies the exact date of the election for President of the USA, and no amendment has ben made to change that date, and nothing any where in that Constitution says that a President can change that date for any reason. Now it does not state how that election is to be conducted, that can be changed, now it also does not say anything about proving who you are to vote either.
When since the beginning of this USA the Conservative party has done everything they can to make it hard for the Blacks and black supporters to vote, now they are scared that if allowed to vote by mail, they do not know of any way to make it harder to vote by those persons. Knowing that the majority of Blacks work in low paying jobs and cannot afford to miss work to vote, the Conservatives play on this in a big way, also this President knows the Virus at present takes a bigger toll on persons of color than on Whites so let it spread and kill off the black population who normally vote Democrat, that is quite evident through Trump’s actions on the pandemic.

This is not a voice of concern rather just another crooked anti-America enemy of our constitutional republic! No patriotic American opposes blacks or ANY legitimate U.S. citizen their right to vote BUT anyone with at least a partial brain knows the Democrappy Party is actively illegally violating the legal constitutional right of voting to “stack the deck” in their favor in order to transform our constitutional republic of self governance into a socialist communist tyrannical form of government to shove their utopia idea of ruling the people (as history has taught us) with an iron fist down our collective throats (talk about slavery en masse)!!!!

So you think anyone from any country should be able to vote in our elections? And if you want to talk about the black voting, you might also call to mind that the black male got the vote before women did. There are enough polling places to vote so that you don’t have to miss work to vote. They open early and close late. Also there is the early voting places to avoid long lines. Also, if the virus is taking a bigger toll on blacks, then why aren’t all those black demonstrators, rioters and looters getting sick? Funny, we don’t see that advertised, which we would if it were true. More bleeding hearts for the blacks. I find it stupid to the 9th degree about giving reparation to them. Not all blacks came from Africa. Not all blacks from Africa were slaves. Some blacks here were slave owners (in fact first slave owner was black). So why would you give someone something they had no participation in to begin with? Are we giving it to the Irish who were also slaves? Is Egypt giving it to the Jews who were slaves? In fact, in Islamic countries slavery is still in existence so why is everyone quiet about that when talking about Muslims? Oh yeah, and Germany never paid reparations to the 6 millions Jews plus the others they murdered so grow up and move on. None of that has anything to do with society today. Voting is for citizens and no one else. Representation in government should be based on citizenship also. If you don’t care enough to become a citizen, then either go back home and cry in your beer or do the work and become a citizen if you want representation.

the solution – forget mail in votes; if you want to vote you go vote and if you want to stay holed up in your home you do that instead. However, since this wouldn’t work well for the dems, it probably won’t happen. They only want what they can cheat at to insure winning this time. They thought they had Hillary gift wrapped last time, but alas, even cheating she couldn’t win. Will be interesting to see what happens this time. I thought it pretty funny when she asked Trump if he would accept the election results – and yet she didn’t and it seems the dems haven’t either. Now she has insinuated that he won’t leave (her and Pelosi) when he loses – and again we have to wonder what cheating scam they will use this time. More rigged voting machines? Mail in votes from non citizens and voting more than once? I have seen more than one illegal voting at the election polls the day Obama was re-elected and no one would allow me to turn them in. Personally, I think if a non citizen is found while trying to vote, they should be immediately deported, here legally or not. They know they are not allowed to vote.
