Faced with the possibility of electoral fraud in the November elections, President Trump said he would send U.S. law enforcement and prosecutors to control and prevent irregularities during the election process.
As reported by Town Hall News, Fox News anchor Sean Hannity asked President Trump late Thursday night, Aug. 20, if he would “have the ability” to monitor and prevent fraud during the upcoming November election. Trump said, “We’re going to have everything. We’re going to have sheriffs, and we’re going to have law enforcement. And we’re going to have, hopefully, U.S. attorneys, and we’re going to have everybody and attorneys general,” the president added.”
Trump’s pledge to send police to the polls comes after he and his allies repeatedly stated that voting by mail, because of an unstable postal system, opens the door to fraud, claiming that “anyone can sign” universal mail ballots. This controversial form of voting is openly promoted by the Democrats, using the pretext of the CCP Virus.
During a July interview with Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, Trump said he would “have to see” whether he would accept the election results in the face of a possible defeat in November, given the high chances of fraud if the mail ballots are significant, The Hill News reported.
Not only is absentee voting being questioned by President Trump, he even said that some polls currently showing Biden as the winner are “completely false.” During his interview with Wallace, he sharply criticized a recent Fox News poll that showed his Democratic opponent leading by 8 points, “I’m not losing because those are fake polls,” he said in the interview. “They were fake in 2016 and now they’re even more fake. The polls were much worse in 2016.”
The experience of absentee voting in the New York election
President Trump and several Republicans have rejected the mail-in ballot efforts, arguing that the practice carries a substantial risk of fraud. Despite criticism and scandals in some recent votes, such as in New York, Democrats continue to promote absentee voting unchecked.
In the New York primary election, according to a NY Post, the New York Election Board reported that more than 84,000 mail-in ballots (25% of the total) in the city’s primary were annulled, meaning that 84,000 people were denied their right to vote.
The New York Election Board received 403,103 mail ballots for the June 23 Democratic presidential primary. But the results posted on the official site were only 318,995.
President Trump is coming under heavy criticism from his critics, who accused him of spreading unfounded panic about the mail-in ballot. However, the events of the New York election confirm that the warnings announced by President Trump and his administration are not unfounded, but rather that they have definite, concrete, and recent evidence about the danger of postal voting.
