    If it isn’t going to be safe to hold the election in November, let’s have the election tomorrow.

    He has failed. He is gone

    • Yeh! Goodbye Trumpy! Nobody needs you! Just your stupid cronies!Thats all!

    • Antique Girl | August 1, 2020 at 2:58 PM | Reply

      Vote blue, anyway, vote against him and his crony enablers like YOUR life depends on it. You will feel better for knowing that you did your part, to nail trumps coffin SHUT.

    • I don’t trust this guy, unless the blue wins, we can’t relax

    To yell fire before the flame while holding the matches should tell you who is responsible.

    Trump will do and say anything to cause division and chaos, that’s always his strategy..

    • I’m alarmed at the dangerous rhetoric he is spewing to an already unhinged and angry mob of right wingers. Watch Fox propaganda for 10 minutes and tell me how this does anything but incite violence.

    • Julie Frazier | August 1, 2020 at 4:09 PM | Reply

      @Mainely Trump is at war with the entire world. He’s dangerously incompetent not to mention physically repulsive.

    • Ellen Kortman | August 1, 2020 at 7:55 PM | Reply

      We need to divide Trump like they did in the old days ==> with an axe.

      Why do you not take action now!!!! You see the Tsunami coming but are waiting for it to do the most damage and then expect everything to be sunshine again?

    • Trump loves the blacks

  5. He’s not scaring me. He is mentally unfit and hopes to BS his way back into the WH using fear tactics and Lies! Vote people, any way you have to. Don’t let a maniac destroy our constitution or our America. This man is out of control.

      @Clorox what’s really sad is Trump is 1,000 times worse than Biden!

    • CJ Mertzlufft | August 2, 2020 at 1:17 AM | Reply

      @Clorox Babe, there is actual video of Trump suggesting that maybe we try injecting ourselves with disinfectant. Take a seat.

    • Dave Ponsford | August 2, 2020 at 6:37 AM | Reply

      @Clorox Its a bad strategy to attack Biden on things where Trump is worse. Trump looking directly into the sun, not being able to close an umbrella, hold a small glass. Do we need to mention the “oranges” or “United Shasshes”. Or walking aimlessly in the wrong direction. Trump s deranged dementia candidate.

    • Are You Crazy…Look At What The Democrats Are Doing To The Country…People Are Leaving Them By The Thousands.

    • Ron Wuerch Ron, thank you for being bold and honest to use what appears to be a real name. But, please, in the spirit of honesty, what resources are you relying on to support your claim that “people are leaving them by thousands”? Please understand, I am not trying to dehumanize you for disagreeing with me or most of the people posting here; however, making an unsupported or poorly supported claim is what festers the circularity of endless arguing. What say you, sir?

    Donnie is really scared.
    He is more personally argumentative – with male reporters now.

    FOLKS WHEN YOU GO VOTE REMEMBER WHAT HE SAYS- I take no responsibility at all.

  8. This is rich, coming from a conman whose votes has been rigged by Russia.

    Just like a little kid they tell on their self! 😨

    • Not showing doubt at all, for me. In fact he’s only confirming that the voting process works, otherwise why is he so ABSOLUTELY PANICKED about the results??? VOTE 2020, BIDEN, as for the remaining GOP, drain the swamp of them too… for your states candidate platforms, AND EARLY VOTING information…

    • @Baron E Yes, trump is more than just scare he and henchmen are petrified.

    He is tanking like an addict needing a fix and can’t get one

    • He is totally like an addict who can’t get a fix. Agreed. The reason is very simple. He hates being a leader, but is desperate to maintain power. He believes himself a genius who can hold up a random Bible and use Barr to create a Fake “Antifa Gone Wild” Reality TV Show. He’s getting more and more OPENLY treasonous with time. “Russia, if you’re listening…”

      @Diane Hooper Apparently the tRump’s have asked Putin for asylum if he loses. If this happens, tRump will be an immigrant, and Melaria will become an immigrant AGAIN, but a legal one this time.

    • If you hate someone so much that you’re willing to destroy our economy you should not vote. Yes Trump says many things he should not say, but in 4 years he’s made our economy better than it has been in a VERY long time. Don’t be naive

    • Diane Hooper | August 2, 2020 at 6:43 PM | Reply

      @Adam Strator That is very true. Putin might give them asylum , 6 ft down kind. Vlad is not going to be happy with them. Let’s face it, WHO does like them?

  11. “Hundreds of millions”-there are probably around 156 million eligible voters.

    Trump: “This will be catastrophic for our nation.”

    Us: “No…just for you.”

  13. “Is Trump Sowing Doubt About The Credibility Of The Election As A Campaign Strategy?” Yes, and if the media keeps giving him free publicity, he will succeed.

  14. “Is Trump Sowing Doubt About The Credibility Of The Election As A Campaign Strategy?” Why else?

  15. Repeating the same lies over and over again was Hitler’s strategy to becoming a dictator by promoting  fear mongering!

    • Yes. Worsening the pandemic until it’s a complete disaster and then using fear of calamity to threaten Americans into voting for him again. “If you don’t vote me in again, the crash will be way worse.”

    • @A R It’s not like Biden can do any worse. 150,000 dead, 30 million unemployed, riots, protests, civil war. I don’t think Biden can do any worse if he even wanted to.

    • @A R America has already hit rock bottom with Trump and Biden can’t do any worse even if he wanted to. Fear mongering Americans into re electing Trump isn’t going to work when you already seen the devastation and destruction of America under the Trump administration.

      Every single day, trump ‘nazi bunker boy’ can always get the (w.) barr lower.
      usa still havent reached the bottom.
      Just wait 90 days and come back for this comment.

    • Arthur Au I agree with Bas 👆🏽USA has not hit bottom. Just like most of the addicts I know, the enablers are ensuring Trump gets pass after pass. We don’t feel the real pain yet due to pandemic unemployment and eviction moratoria.

  16. “This will be catastrophic.” Yes, because you are the president. Everything is catastrophic with you as president.

  17. What does he mean “In Joe Biden’s America?” It’s not his or ttump’s* America. This country belongs to the PEOPLE.

  18. Do Americans really want to return DJT, who declared himself to be a “I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITIES” War Time President and a Law and Order President, for a second term?

  19. The President is telling us his strategy, he’s going to rig the election. Can not anyone hear him say that clear and out loud?

    Trump is trying to scare people to his level of scared. He’s afraid of losing fairly.
