Trump: "I Don't Know" If The Election Can Be Honest


President Donald Trump again expressed doubt about the security of mail-in ballots as he departed the White House on Thursday.

"Mr. President, are the election results only legitimate if you win?" a reporter asked.

"We have to be very careful with the balance," Trump replied. "The ballots -- that's a whole big scam. You know, they found, I understand, eight ballots in a wastepaper basket in some location and they found it was reported in one of the newspapers that they found a lot of ballots in a river. They'd throw them out if they have the name Trump on it, I guess."

"It had no names on them, they said," the reporter retorted.

"Okay, well they still found them on a river, whether they had a name on them or not," Trump responded. "But the other one other ones had the Trump name on it and they were thrown into a wastepaper basket. We want to make sure the election is honest and I'm not sure that it can be. I don't I don't know that it can be with this whole situation. Unsolicited ballots. They're unsolicited. Millions being sent to everybody."

"We'll see, but if you remember, Hillary Clinton just a week ago or so told Joe Biden do not accept the results of the election under any circumstances. But you don't ask her that question. You only ask me the question," the president said.
