Donald Trump knows the American people DO NOT WANT HIM. He is terrified of large turnout, especially of “those people” with brown or black skin — the ones he says he did so much for, more than any other president except (possibly) Abraham Lincoln.
Trump knows HE CANNOT WIN A LEGITIMATE ELECTION.
He lost the actual vote of the people BY THREE MILLION in 2016, has lost much of his support and done nothing to expand his voting base.
Trump hired Louis DeJoy as Postmaster General despite ZERO experience in the Postal Service, to sabotage mail voting. His thugs are trying to intimidate voters at the polls, and his goons in California are setting up fake collection boxes and a legitimate, real “official” collection box in an African American area of Los Angeles was set on fire and more than a hundred ballots burned.
Trump’s exact words: “GET RID OF THE BALLOTS … there won’t be a transfer; frankly, we’ll have a continuation.”
At this point, any person still supporting Donald Trump is a TRAITOR TO THE UNITED STATES. Hell, they are already waving the flags of the KKKonfederacy and the Nazis, wartime enemies the U.S. crushed by REAL AMERICANS.
Trump knows the mail is safe for voting (well, at least until he sabotages it). He votes that way as do his kids and most of his staff. He has told voters in Florida and Arizona that mail-in voting is safe in their states. He is sending robocalls to his supporters in other states saying that it is safe and encouraging them to vote by mail, even as he says the opposite to the general public.
Trump knows mail ballots work. That is why he is trying to stop them. Because he knows that the more people the vote, the bigger the margin he will lose by, and Putin can’t hack mail ballots and the paper trail they leave.
