Trump: ‘If You Count The Legal Votes, I Easily Win The Election!’

President Donald Trump‘s press secretary Thursday afternoon tweeted out a statement from him in which he appears to discredit ballots that are still being counted and still arriving at election clerk offices, claiming that they are illegal and don’t help him win if they are counted.

The all-caps statement in the tweet from Press Sec. Kayleigh McEnany kept it brief.

“IF YOU COUNT THE LEGAL VOTES, I EASILY WIN THE ELECTION!” the president’s statement read. “IF YOU COUNT THE ILLEGAL AND LATE VOTES, THEY CAN STEAL THE ELECTION FROM US!”

While he gives no specific context to his statement, Trump is likely talking about ballots that arrive at election clerk offices late, even if postmarked on or before Election Day. He has routinely made claims that such ballots are illegal and shouldn’t be counted. His campaign has even filed lawsuits to halt the vote counts in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia, with such claims forming part of his team’s legal arguments alongside other claims of voter fraud. Some of these lawsuits have been struck down, however, such as the one in Georgia.

Many ballots are still arriving at counting centers and being counted, something which is legal to varying parameters between the states.

Votes are still being counted in many places because many states don’t allow election workers to count the ballots before Election Day, which created million-ballot backlogs of uncounted votes that had to be tallied on Election Day—on top of the votes cast in person on that day too. Additionally, these state laws allow such ballots to be counted if received by a certain date because the unprecedented amount of ballots sent through the mail are traveling slowly through the overwhelmed U.S. Postal Service, whose service has slowed down due to all of this.

No independent authority has declared an official winner of this presidential election yet, with millions of ballots left to be counted in states currently with paper-thin margins between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
