Trump Says Election May Be Decided By Supreme Court
In a White House Press Briefing Wednesday, President Trump said he could not commit to a peaceful transfer of power should he lose to Joe Biden in November as he would have doubt over the validity of the outcome.
Specifically, he targeted mail-in ballots saying "the ballots are a disaster." The President has stated multiple times that he believes widespread mail-in voting will lead to voter fraud. The shifting landscape with the Coronavirus pandemic may result in millions of Americans voting by mail for the first time. It's worth noting that the five states that routinely send mail-in ballots to all voters have had no evidence of significant fraud. Trump also uses mail-in ballots to cast his own personal vote.
Trump further predicted that the Supreme Court might have to decide the outcome of November's election. Seemingly, this is one of the reasons he wishes for the Senate to confirm his new justice nominee as quickly as possible.
Said Trump, “I think this will end up in the Supreme Court. And I think it's very important that we have nine justices.”
