During a press conference at Bedminster, New Jersey, resort, Trump said, “Usually at the end of the evening, they say Donald Trump has won the election, Donald Trump is our new President.”
On Saturday. Trump raised alarm , as to when the country will know the results of the presidential election on November , telling that it could take ‘months or even years’.
Repeating false claims, about vote-by-mail ballots, Trump said “You know what? You are going to know this, possibly, if you really did it right , for months or for years. Because these ballots are all going to be lost, they are all going to be gone”.
Trump stated that, the US Postal Service don’t have enough resources to collect the expected increase in mail-in-ballots for the election, because it was the fault of Democrats that the agency continued to be underfunded. He also stated to Democratic lawmakers that, “They want a trillion dollars to bailout sates, badly run Democrat states, they are not giving money to the post office.”
Keeping the states resources funds safe the preparation for an election amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Democrats for months have called for more funding for the USPS. Republicans have been reluctant to agree to these asks and the two sides have been unable for weeks to reach a deal on the next coronavirus relief bill.
On Saturday, Trump dismissed reporters questions about whether Postmaster General Louis DeJoy was purposefully trying to delay mail less than three months before the general election. Trump said, “He is trying to streamline the post office and make it great again”.
Trump also refused to knock down the baseless and racist claim he spread earlier this week about Harris, being eligible for the VP or presidency because she was not born in the US, telling reporters, “I have nothing to do with that.”
Numerous states have received letters, from the Postal Service in recent days warning them that there is not enough time for ballots to be requested, completed and returned before November 3, presidential election, a startling development as many states have expanded mail-in voting because of the pandemic.
