Trump won't commit to peaceful transition
https://www.cnbc.com/2020/09/23/tru...ansfer-of-power-if-he-loses-the-election.html

President Donald Trump refused Wednesday to commit to a peaceful transition of power if he loses the 2020 election to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

“Well, we’ll have to see what happens. You know that. I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots. And the ballots are a disaster,” Trump said at a news conference at the White House. It appeared Trump was referring to mail-in ballots, which he has repeatedly condemned, without evidence, as susceptible to massive fraud.

The president had been asked by a reporter if he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power, “win, lose or draw.”

When the reporter noted that “people are rioting,” Trump replied: “Get rid of the ballots, and you’ll have a very – you’ll have a very peaceful – there won’t be a transfer, frankly, there’ll be a continuation.”

“The ballots are out of control,” Trump said, adding, “The Democrats know it better than anybody else.”

The Biden campaign issued the following statement in response to Trump declining to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he were to lose the election: “The American people will decide this election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.”

Minutes later, the president abruptly left the briefing room, telling the press, “I have to leave to take an emergency phone call.”

Pay attention Trumper's, your guy is threatened a coup and he's not even trying to hide that fact anymore. Your god is raking democracy over the coals for a while until he roasts it to death in November. He's planning a government takeover using the military. There's nobody else responsible for this catastrophe other than YOURSELVES! This is exactly what a coup looks like.

I don't know if you've read the latest article in the Atlantic yet, but I highly recommend it. Trump is going to do everything he possibly can to steal this election. He will NEVER concede.

Trump is not going to wait until all of the ballots are counted. He's hoping that he will be in the lead on 3 Nov, because all the mail-in ballots have not been counted yet, and he will declare himself the winner on 3 Nov. And he and Moscow Mitch have spent the past 4 years packing the courts with right-wing whack job judges who will rule in their favor in the ballot disputes in the courts after 3 Nov.

This shouldn't be news to anyone. Today he answered a reporters question about a peaceful transition of power and his answer was basically that he will get rid of all the ballots and there won't be any transition at all. Look.... this is the finale of Putin's long game. All this racial discord isn't an accident, it was the plan. Tonight they're protesting in Kentucky, a police officer has been shot. Next thing on the Putin agenda is to call in the military, then cancel the election. I have known this was coming 3 years ago.

From the Atlantic article, describing the situation where votes are counted after election day. This excerpt captures Trump's complaints during the 2018 election in Florida.

If Trump complained this much about the FL Governor race and the FL Senate race in 2018, he is most definitely going to raise the same type of hell about his election this year.

It was Florida, however, that seized Trump’s attention that year. On Election Night, Republicans were leading in tight contests for governor and U.S. senator. As the blue shift took effect, Ron DeSantis watched his lead shrink by 18,416 votes in the governor’s race. Rick Scott’s Senate margin fell by 20,231. By early morning on November 12, six days after Election Day, Trump had seen enough. “The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged,” he tweeted, baselessly. “An honest vote count is no longer possible—ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!”

A Trump advisor basically acknowledging that they are going to challenge all ballots counted after election day:

“They are asking for it,” he said. “They’re trying to maximize their electoral turnout, and they think there are no downsides to that.” He added, “There will be a count on Election Night, that count will shift over time, and the results when the final count is given will be challenged as being inaccurate, fraudulent—pick your word.”

It is quite obvious to all from Trump's sickening comments from the podium in the WH that he knows he is LOSING. All his internal polls tells him he is LOSING or else he would not be making these outlandish claims that he will have the SJC impound the ballots and declare him the winner. Ah-huh. Sure Donald.

We have this nice padded room right over here for you Donald.

Ballots that are received after election day.

Equal protection of the law, perhaps?

Wrong. Mail-in ballots that are received before or during election day, but are counted after election day. Trump is going to try to get these ballots thrown out, and he may very well succeed.

:ROFLMAO:

You epitomize the point. Lose gracefully? YOU are still shitting yourself over 2004.

2004 was a close election. This one is not. Trump's only hope is to pull another inside-straight, like he did in 2016. Because he's going to get crushed in the popular vote.

Can't help but notice that the only thing the "dumb as doorknobs" party has left is projection.

Always accuse others of what you do.

Complete imbeciles.

Congratulation on dumbing yourself down.

Oddly enough, neither is yours.

You don't think Trump will try to steal the election? He most definitely will. In fact, he's already admitted that he will.

Let me rephrase it -- if Trump loses, will he concede in your opinion?

Trump should avoid using the word Revolution, if he ignores the results he may well get one.

That isn't what he is talking about.
