During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump was asked if he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election. Trump said no, would wait and see. Hillary Clinton and the left freaked out.
Again in 2020, the left asked, now President Trump, if he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election. He said yes but only if it was a fair election. The left freaked out again.
Well, Joe Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon has asserted that, “Under no scenario will Donald Trump be declared a victor on election night.”
The quote was tweeted by New York Times national political reporter Shane Goldmacher.
The comment was made shortly after the Trump campaign issued a mass email asserting that the Biden campaign was planning to rig the election by not accepting defeat.
“They have no say in that process,” commented Jack Posobiec. “It is not ok for a campaign to delegitimize election results like this, regardless of which party is doing it.”
Jen O’Malley Dillon is not the only one.
A handful of states have won court decisions to delay the election past November 3rd.
Shortly after the US Supreme Court passed on reviewing a lower courts’ decision allowing a 3-day extension of counting PA mail-in ballots, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro claimed his state’s outcome is predetermined and called the race for Joe Biden.
“If all the votes are added up in PA, Trump is going to lose. That’s why he’s working overtime to subtract as many votes as possible from this process,” Shapiro said.
He again verified that his state won’t be releasing final election results until three days after election day.
“I could care less what Donald Trump says, we will count these ballots in a proper way to be certified,” said Shapiro.
If President Trump can win a few extra states on November 3rd, Pennsylvania will not be required for him to hit the required 270 electoral votes, and will not hold up the election.
If not, hold on as I have been through a delayed election. In 2018 every GOP House member in Orange County, CA, though winning on election night, all lost.
