- THE EPOCH TIMES - Dec 2, 2020 -
Trump, speaking from the White House in a video that he released on social media, said his job as president is to defend the laws and Constitution of the United States and that he’s determined to protect the election system, which he said is “under coordinated assault and siege.”
Trump accused Democrats of implementing a mass mail-in balloting scheme in order to steal the election and outlined aspects of the Nov. 3 election that he sees as suspicious or fraudulent.
Using the pandemic as a pretext, he said, Democratic officials and judges drastically changed election procedures in the months and weeks leading up to the election, in apparent violation of the Constitution.
Judges in multiple states have ruled the changes likely violated the Constitution, including in Minnesota and Pennsylvania. Secretaries of state in those two states were ordered to separate late-arriving ballots while the cases are decided.
Trump said his campaign has found that many voters in Pennsylvania received two ballots in the mail, while others received ballots for which they never applied.
