President Donald Trump took some time in the early morning hours on Wednesday to discuss the election results, which show the race for the White House being much, much tighter than any person anticipated just a few short days ago.
So tight, in fact, that Trump suggested that the outcome of the election might end up in the hands of the Supreme Court.
The president spent a few moments of his speech addressing the major victories his campaign won and talked about states where things still looked good for him. He then switched to discussing how the vote counting suddenly stopped in important races that had yet to be called.
“And all of a sudden everything just stopped,” Trump said. “This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country.”
“So our goal now is to ensure the integrity for the good of this nation, this is a very big moment. This is a major fraud on our nation. We want the law to be used in the proper manner,” Trump continued. “So we will be going to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 o’clock in the morning and add them to the list. OK? It’s a very sad, it’s a very sad moment.”
Well, he’s not wrong you know.
It seems very strange that many tight races in major battleground states suddenly stopped out of nowhere. We’ve all been worried about the possibility of Democrats taking any means necessary to try and mess with the results of the election to swing things in their favor.
Could this be the real reason for the delay in vote counting? Once upon a time, I would’ve said that’s a tinfoil hat theory for crazy conspiracy theorists, but given the amount of garbage this president has had to fight against, anything is possible.
I certainly hope that’s not what’s happening. We need to preserve the integrity of our election system. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see how things turn out and whether or not this is going to end up in the hands of the Supreme Court.
