Not sure. Though that is some nice amount of food for thought.

Maybe, though he doesn't directly strike me as the kind of person who would do so after the fact and the only time he said anything about such trouble after the election was the whole 300 million hiccup. And in that case it was just that his people received faulty data. An occurrence that we know both republicans and democrats are not immune to. He's seemed more the person to talk up the moment, but not very much after the fact.

Then again we didn't have a ripe environment for such a notion. Now with so many pushing for mail-in voting and with states attempting to gear up for it. It's fueling the whole story even more on a day by day basis.

I don't know. I'm still at a maybe.

He is always making excuses, so probably he would.

It's not about 2016. It's about 2020. It is not about the popular vote. The popular vote is irrelevant.

It's about people unreasonably pushing mail-in voting...especially in states that are not equipped to safely and securely conduct mail-in voting. This opens up an enormous opportunity for voter fraud, mistakes and unnecessary delays in the counting.

It's about the hypocrisy of using COVID as a reason for mail-in voting while disregarding COVID to support mass gatherings of people. People who engage in such hypocrisy typically have their own motives for doing so...and those motives are rarely of benefit to anyone but themselves.

And finally, it's about a group comprised of the left and people who, for whatever reason, don't want Trump around who have engaged in try after try after try, over the last five years, to defeat Trump in whatever he has attempted to do. That group has shown that they'll stop at nothing...no matter if it is odious or illegal...to achieve their goal.

It's not about 2016.

My thread is

It is not about the popular vote

For Trump it is(EGO)

So you didn't notice after the 2016 election(Trump won) where Trump did lose the popular vote he said that there was 3 to 5 million illegal votes?
