The real reason Donald Trump hates mail-in ballots

The real reason Donald Trump hates mail-in ballots 1


California wants to send mail-in ballots to all registered voters ahead of the 2020 election due to the coronavirus pandemic, a move that President Donald Trump is continuously attacking — saying it will lead to a fraudulent and rigged election. Chris Cillizza explains why the widespread election fraud Trump claims will happen is, well, unlikely.

  1. Hey, Chris here – do you know how to register for a mail-in ballot in your state?

  2. Because he knows he’ll lose

      Btw, he’s just given the order warning social media they must allow full free speech.
      You’re going to witness an exponential rise in opposing voices, just in time for November.
      Good luck.

    Is it true that Ivanka invested in Chinese Voting Machines? Hmmm?

  4. Trump needs something to blame when he loses reelection other than his own failure.

  5. I guess Donald just projected that he will be hiring professionals to engage in voter fraud.

      @Troy Stocker the funny thing is, the only ballot harvesting shown had been by the Republicans in NC, most recently.

      cyanleopard At least we can be sure HIS wife WILL NOT try to STEAL the silverware.

    • cyanleopard Your candidate Joe Alzheimer’s Biden is really bringing out the voters. His bathroom rally’s were really inspiring. Still haven’t heard a single policy to make the country better. I’m sure he’ll come up with something before Nov.

  8. It’s rigged. Unless we win.

      @Kiên Ng Trump rigged the primaries 10x over what the DNC cultists did? Lol Trump married his brother 10x more than ilhan Omar? Lol

    • Mueller Time | May 28, 2020 at 4:09 PM | Reply

      @Greg Bors lol. Yes, the DNC cult did rig it’s primary in 2016. Why did Debbie Wasserman Schultz resign from head of the DNC cult? Lol. How did fish fingers Biden win over Bernie? Lol

    • @Mueller Time Well , dirty Donnie did sleep with his daughter and rape a 13 year old at one of Epstein’s parties , but only after Jeff drugged her and tied her down first … such a manly man in his corset, wig , make up and his tiny little high heeled pumps , makes him a little taller than the First Hooker

      @wee huddy oh yeah? Where is your proof? Remember when Trump accuser E Jean Carrol called rape sexy on Anderson Cooper’s show? Lol. Your TDS will end up killing you.

      Have you accepted Trump as your president yet?

  9. …and he cheats at golf! 🇺🇸

  10. Imagine thinking the only way to commit voter fraud is by pretending you’re someone else at a poll…

    Pushing to make voter registration mandatory in Colorado. And everyone gets a mail in ballot.

    • @Jeremy Jones To late, but mail in has never been found to have any fraud. #trumpvirus

    • @hunkey monkey Thanks for a bunch of fake news trumptard. #trumpvirus

    • Maria Lindly | May 28, 2020 at 9:07 PM | Reply

      Not only would Mandatory registration be Unconstitutional it would make way too many unwanted and unused ballots available to cheaters. The only people who want that are cheaters.

    • @Kate Linwood and yet, the facts pointed out to you in this video say otherwise.

    • aztecstargazer So that Democrats can have illegals vote by mail and cheat.

    It’s easy to shut him up if he’s in handcuffs… just a thought. There’s plenty of evidence to do that on multiple counts… so let’s just do it. The longer he whines about his unfair world bubble that surrounds EXACTLY 1, the longer we ALL have to suffer. Time to throw away the key.

  14. I feel like he’s only saying this just so the electronic ballots can get hacked..?? Hmm… 🤔

  15. Military votes by mail. I guess they’re frauds and cheats, also….🤭.

    • @Chaud Poivron 👈”useful idiot”

    • @Austin Jackson 👈”useful idiot”

    • @Kate Linwood largest or smallest, democrat or republican, it all needs to be stopped. Both sides have done it and the loopholes need to be patched up

    • @Austin Jackson well i dun really care, all i care is Joe winning in November and like i said, ill be here consoleing you. Please do the same for me if Trump won ok?😃

    • Austin Jackson | May 28, 2020 at 8:01 PM | Reply

      @Solonavi aye i got respect that you admitted it ill give u that 😂😂😂 i never expected a democrat to admit mail in ballots will cause major fraud and that its only Democrats that want mail in ballot… i give you major creds for that 😂😂😂😂 but no i hope u cry yourself to sleep for the next 4 1/2 years of Trump 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊 ……and don’t forget about the debates 😂😂😂 joe cant even do a 15min skype without telling black people they are not black if they don’t vote for him….so just imagine what is going to happen during the debate 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 it is going to be the best moment in political history 😂😂😂

    I wish everyone would call/tweet “LOSER”.
    Pretty sure that would make him lose it.
    Let’s rally, folks!

    • I’m not pro trump but I don’t see Biden having any chance of winning

      Adrian neither did I as a hold out progressive until Trumps recent executive order. Today he committed suicide with his open tantrum over being fact checked as he attempts to suppress votes.

      Adrian so all the current numbers and polls even the one by trump news, I mean Fox News are wrong? They show Biden winning easily.

    I completely agree that is going to be trump’s excuse when he loses.

      The Donald will win the popular vote like he did in 2016. The satanic baby eating pedos are in panic mode.

    Mail ballots allow EVERYONE who is registered to vote and that pisses him off.
