The President said that he wants the race called on the day of the election. He implies that he wants many of the mail votes ignored.
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.
“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. “I don't believe that. So we'll see what happens.”
It is, in fact, perfectly legal for states to count ballots for weeks after the election; some states allow mail-in ballots to arrive up to two weeks after November 3 as long as they are postmarked by Election Day. Due to the unprecedented surge in mail-in voting sparked by the pandemic, the process of tallying ballots and determining the election winner is expected to take longer than usual.
“He wants to throw out legal votes. That's what he's saying here,” tweeted Garance Franke-Ruta, executive editor of GEN magazine.
Nancy Pelosi did not mince her words as she scorched the president by enumerating all the evil deeds he has done throughout his administration. She then makes it clear that not vacating the White House after his loss will not be tolerated.
