  1. Donald Trump is killing America

  2. Joe Biden 2020

  3. Donald tRump is a weak man’s idea of a strongman!

  4. Democrats absolutely must win the Presidency and the Senate.
    Trump and Republican senators are corrupt to the bone

    • democrats NEED a trifecta and then sum. presidency, senate, and house + majority democrats in scotus. 🗽🤞🇺🇸🌊

    • Speaking of corruption…. Hunter’s laptop.

    • @bryanatwku You mean the laptop that may or may not be Hunter’s? The one taken to a computer repair shop 2,700 miles from where Hunter lives. The one given to an owner who’s eyes are so bad he could not identify who gave it to him. The one that had information that is exactly what Guliani said he found in the Ukrainian after meeting with a contact who was been sanctioned by the Trump Treasury Department for engaging in a disinformation campaign designed to influence the 2020 US Presidential election and who was identified as a “malign actor” by US intelligence. That laptop?

      @Flabby Bum Just a few words the Europeans, UK, IMF all wanted the corrupt official gone along with the USA. Get the facts right.

    • @Brenda Heeligan Not true. As in the US, the political class in Europe do tend to dislike Trump. But many ordinary people like and respect him.

  5. Why is only 1 state asking for this extension? Do they hire kids to count ballots? What’s the problem?

  6. It’s not over. Go out and vote! If you feel scared to vote in-person, just wear a red t-shirt and vote blue.

    When it comes down to the mail in ballots they should be counted early and written down by the date it comes in, so this way there’s a clear winner.

    • Right. Why can’t the ballots be counted as they arrive? But the problem would be with a huge number of ballots that will arrive after the election day while they may be posted before or on the election day (by 8 pm cut off time in PA). Trump ordered post offices to remove many sorting facilities, and many post office location are closed. Many drop mail boxes were removed as well. Basically, there would be much less capacity to sort mail in ballots in time. He did everything possible to prevent people to vote by mail as soon as he knew it would be an option for all.

      @Alena E.V. If the ballots are counted as they arrive, the results will inevitably leak out to the public because there are a number of people working in the poll stations. This can easily influence the election because voters will be more likely to vote if they know the party they identify with is losing.

  9. I voted by mail in PA when I was in the military and as long as it was post marked by Election Day you were good. Why would anyone want to not count someone’s vote post marked by Election Day?

    • 37,904,665 of us voted country wide and if all of them get counted, it looks bad for Donald

    • Thank you for your service 🇺🇲

    • So they can add the margins they lose by.

    • I’ve heard that Military always vote for Republicans, as if automatically (do you agree?), and the number of votes prior to this year were so small, they barely change anything. This year, most people who want to vote by mail will not vote for Trump, according to poles, and therefore, Trump is afraid to loose, and he can’t be a looser LOL.

  10. Don’t be fooled. Trump is prepping his toadies in the Supreme Court to gift him the Presidency when he loses

  11. More like 3 weeks

  12. This Nation needs every state to offer early voting! All challenges to ballots should have to inform the voter of the challenge and give time for response! Election Day should be a holiday!

    THIS RUINS DEMOCRACY

  15. The supreme Court didn’t allow anything. When there is a tie the lower court ruling stands. So it’s the pennsylvania court that allowed it. Frigging media morons.

  16. The GOP’s worst fear is that every American votes.

    Wow you mean they’re allow democracy to take place instead of GOP vote suppression!

  18. Vote vote Biden 2020
