President Trump is disregarding Joe Biden’s Campaign manager, Jen O’Malley Dillon’s “strange” claims that “under no scenario” will President Trump be declared winner tonight. President Trump brushed off the Democrat’s claims as he has been confident that he will win re-election.
In a report from Fox News:
“That was a very weird quote,” he said during a Tuesday morning interview with “Fox & Friends.” “And I don’t know what she meant, except maybe she is talking about the very strange decision made by the U.S. Supreme Court that allows extra time and a lot of other things.”
“It allows for chaos, frankly. And so maybe she is talking about that. Maybe you can blow out Pennsylvania so you don’t have to do it,” the president noted.
“I have no idea who she is. She has something to do with his campaign, I guess. No. It was a strange quote. It was not a smart quote either, I think,” he said.
Recently, the Supreme Court ruled that ballots in North Carolina and Pennsylvania may be counted in the days following Election Day so long as the ballots are postmarked Nov. 3 or before. Pennsylvania ballots counts have been extended three days to be tabulated and North Carolina ballots will be counted for another nine days.
Republicans have challenged the current rulings saying that the ballots received by and cast on Nov. 3 should be the only ballots counted in the election.
“The decision on Pennsylvania was a horrible decision,” Trump said Tuesday. “There’s just no reason to go beyond the date. People should put their ballots in early. You don’t have to wait until the end. Why are they waiting till the end? They have it for a long time. They put their ballots in early and there’s plenty of time to count it, tabulate it and do it through a normal course.”
Pennsylvania and North Carolina are swing states where results could be major factors in who wins the election. Today, Dillion made the equally strange claims that Biden has multiple paths to victory even if he does not win Florida and Pennsylvania. The statement raises concerns that the Biden team is bracing for losses in swing states despite making previous claims they will win in a landslide.
Biden campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon: "We continue to have multiple pathways to 270 electoral votes" says they can win 270 even without PA and FL
