[Ed. – As long as he keeps getting a reaction, he’ll keep doing this. It’s basically the same thing the media are doing, with their themes that only a landslide victory for Biden can calm America down, and that we’ll have to wait for weeks to be sure who won because Trump voters — who will vote in person — will have their votes counted on Election Day, but Biden voters won’t. The difference? Trump was elected to speak to the people about these things and shape their expectations. The media weren’t. Whether you like Trump’s methods or not, there is no valid reason for him to maintain silence as if that’s the seemly and righteous way to convey that all is well. In fact, all is not well. It’s not 2004, and it isn’t going to be “2004” again for a long time. Trump is free to talk about that. I might do it differently, and I’ll run for president if it’s that important to me.]
U.S. President Donald Trump has urged residents in the critical political battleground of North Carolina to try to vote twice in the Nov. 3 election, once by mail and once in person, causing a furor for appearing to urge a potential act of voter fraud.
“Let them send it in and let them go vote,” Trump said in an interview on Wednesday with WECT-TV in Wilmington, North Carolina. “And if the system is as good as they say it is then obviously they won’t be able to vote” in person.
Trump has repeatedly asserted, without evidence, that mail-in voting – expanded by some states because of the coronavirus pandemic – would increase fraud and disrupt the November election, although experts say voter fraud of any kind is extremely rare in the United States.
