Trump: "Smart People" Understand What's Going On With Voter Fraud, "Stupid People" Don't Get It

|

President Donald Trump held a press conference on Thursday and faced questions about a tweet he sent earlier in the day pondering if the upcoming presidential election should be delayed. The president said "stupid people" may not know about voter fraud and he does not want the nation to become a "laughingstock" because of a mishandled election.

"Do I want to see a date change? No, but I don't want to see a crooked election. This election will be the most rigged election in history if that happens," Trump said.




PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We all agree that absentee voting is good. Mail-in ballots will lead to the greatest fraud. You know, we talk about Russia, Russia, Russia for two and a half years, and then they found nothing and there was nothing.

But they talk Russia, Russia, Russia. They talk China. They talk all of these countries. They say they get involved in our elections.

This is easy. You can forge ballots. This is much easier for foreign countries.

Go ahead, Steve.

REPORTER: But delaying the election is probably a non-starter. I mean, wouldn't you agree with that?

TRUMP: I don't want to delay. I want to have the election. But I also don't want to have to wait for three months and then find out that the ballots are all missing and the election doesn't mean anything.

That's what's going to happen, Steve. That's commonsense, and everyone knows it. Smart people know it. Stupid people may not know it. And some people don't want to talk about it, but they know it.

And no, we want to have an election where people actually go in, and what's your name? My name is so-and-so. Boom, you signed the book like I've been doing for years.

It's very, very unfair to our country. If they do this, our country will be a laughingstock all over the world because everyone knows it doesn't work. How many ballots is he sending in California? Is it 28 million or so massive number?

Other states are sending out millions and millions of ballots. Well, they've done it. They had experiments. They had news organizations experimenting.

And look, read the story in The Washington Post about mail-in voting. It's a disaster. I'm very surprised to see that story, frankly, from them. The story's a disaster.

So we're asking for a lot of trouble. And no, do I want to see a date change? No, but I don't want to see a crooked election. This election will be the most rigged election in history if that happens.
