President Trump claims getting election results may take years if all voters have the option to vote by mail

President Donald Trump continued his campaign to discourage universal availability of mail-in voting Wednesday, telling “Fox & Friends” that if everyone is given the opportunity to vote by mail this year, it could take years to get the election results.

The president was asked specifically about Nevada, where the Democratic-controlled Legislature passed a measure that would have absentee ballots sent to all active registered voters in the state so they don’t have to go vote in person during the pandemic. The Trump campaign has sued Nevada over the plan.

“As you know, the postal service for 40 years has had big problems,” Trump said. “They’re not equipped to handle a governor where they say ‘millions of ballots will be posted in a couple of weeks. Gear up.’ You can’t do that. It doesn’t work that way. It’s a very complex process. … If it doesn’t work out, you’re not going to know the Nov. 3 election result, I’m talking about for the whole country, it could be for months and months — actually it could be for years.”

President Trump has at times tried to draw a distinction between the absentee ballot process, through which people with certain circumstances can request to vote by mail, and universal mail-in voting, where everyone is sent a ballot to vote by mail regardless of their situation.

Regarding Florida, however, the president disregarded that difference and encouraged everyone in the state to request a ballot and vote by mail. Trump votes via absentee ballot in Florida.

“Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True,” Trump wrote Tuesday on Twitter. “Florida’s Voting system has been cleaned up (we defeated Democrats attempts at change), so in Florida I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail!”

President Trump believes Nevada’s universal vote-by-mail plan will prevent Republicans from winning elections in the state.

“In an illegal late-night coup, Nevada’s clubhouse Governor made it impossible for Republicans to win the state,” Trump said on Twitter. “Post Office could never handle the traffic of mail-in votes without preparation. Using COVID to steal the state. See you in Court!”

Hawaii, Colorado, Oregon, Utah, and Washington already had voting by mail before the pandemic. Vermont, California, and Washington, D.C., adopted the voting method due to COVID-19.

    Any election result in the upcoming election will end up in court. The Communist Democrap Party will squeal like PIGS when President Trump kicks their collective a**es! They will claim that President Trump “stole” the election through “manipulating” the mail-in vote . . . which was their idea to start!

    This is SURE TO BE a hotly debated and contested Election with claims of fraud or uncounted votes by both sides.

    Unfortunately, what the President is failing to remember, is that in the event of an Electoral College tie, or a contested election, THE DEMOCRATICALLY HELD HOUSE WILL DETERMINE THE WINNER !!!!

    Patriots for Trump – now that is an oxymoron! Your Commander-in-Cheat is the farthest thing from a patriot – he is guilty of treason. He is responsible for killing tens of thousands of Americans for ignoring the pandemic – he is in bed with Xi in China. He sided with China and hid the truth about the pandemic from the American people so not to lose his precious trade deals with China…. trade deals that have resulted in more harm than good. And of course to keep the stock market healthy in support of his billionaire cronies.

    He has allowed his other bedmate, Mr. Putin to pay terrorists to kill US soldiers….now if that is not treasonous behaviour then what is…. of course he denies everything and has the audacity to say that nobody is tougher on Russia than Donald Trump! What a joke – even the US Intelligence has confirmed this as well as Russian interference in your election process… in the mind of Agent Orange Trump, ignorance is bliss.

    It is so sad that so many Republicans do not want to except the truth… they are so anti-democrat that even a an orange-faced pink-eyed buffoon is better than a democrat. I love the US but am deeply saddened that you have allowed the Liar-in-Chief to flush your wonderful country down the toilet. It will take decades for you to recover.
    The rest of the world looks at the once mighty USA as a joke….

    Please dump the fake president and allow your country to return to its rightful place in the world…. we all need And please stop hating each other….you are very close to another civil war.
