On Sunday during an interview on FOX News Sunday, Donald Trump said he’s not sure he’ll accept the results of the 2020 election, saying that he’ll “have to see.” He added, without evidence, that mail-in voting will “rig the election.”
During the interview with host Chris Wallace, Trump continued to downplay the COVID-19 pandemic, which has taken the lives of more than 140,000 people in the U.S. and left 3.7 million infected here, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
While Trump was being interviewed, Wallace revealed the results of a new FOX News national poll that has Joe Biden leading Trump by eight-percent. Trump dismissed “fake polls” and added, “First of all, I’m not losing because those are fake polls. They were fake in 2016 and now they’re even more fake.” (CNBC)
- Trump is already sowing the seeds of doubt of the validity of the election, just in case he loses.
- There’s no evidence that mail-in voting leads to widespread voter fraud, as Trump maintains.
- With the possibility that COVID-19 might still be a threat in November, mail-in voting is essential.
