Trump floats idea that fraud could lead to re-do of November election - Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday said a massive shift to mail-in voting in the November presidential election could cause so many problems officials might have to re-do the vote.

Trump has said repeatedly and without evidence that a shift to universal mail-in voting - something most states have not proposed doing - will lead to fraud in the Nov. 3 election, when he faces Democratic challenger Joe Biden who currently holds a substantial lead in public opinion polls.

Trump does not have the authority to reschedule an election. A national election “re-do” has never occurred in the more than 200 years the U.S. has held elections, including during the Civil War, the Great Depression and two world wars.

“It will end up being a rigged election or they will never come out with an outcome,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday. “They’ll have to do it again, and nobody wants that.”
===================================================================
Trump continues to spin the tale that the Nov election will be rigged, despite the fact that historical statistics show such fraud exists at only a very low level. Such a 're-do' has never taken place in the history of this ****ry.

As usual it’s projection from Trump.

He’s the one trying to do the rigging.

He’s floating a reason and a recourse when he’s defeated.

That’s why it’s imperative to defeat him in such a landslide that nobody can claim fraud.

Here’s the reason: by suggesting it’s rigged, he raises the issue in people’s minds. If he wins, then the issue is assuaged and he will not suggest it anymore.

The best place for him in terms of safety for us, is behind bars. Then he can Tweet to his hearts content, and we can ignore it with little concern.
