Donald Trump is currently the president of the United States, whether we like it or not. And that’s apparently his plan for the 2020 election, as he savagely sows doubt about the validity of the vote for the presidency. He keeps speaking in desperate but vague tones, with his accusations now having reached Trumpian shorthand like “fake news” and “Russia hoax” before it.
Now it’s “the ballots.” At a press briefing this week, asked again about and declining to support a peaceful transfer of power should he lose the election, Trump said, “You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots. And the ballots are a disaster…The ballots are out of control. You know it, and you know who knows it better than anybody else? The Democrats know it better than anybody else.”
