“We will put it down very, very quickly if there is. Absolutely. And I think the American public wants to see that,” Trump said.
“If there’s any kind of demonstration of violence there will be nothing that interferes with this… vote. There’s going to be nothing,” the president said. “The biggest problem we have right now are the ballots. Millions of ballots going out. That’s the biggest problem.”
QUESTION: Thank you, Mr. President. Bill Barr told prosecutors that he wants to charge violent demonstrators with sedition. And he told Judge Jeanine if there are violent demonstrations on election night we will put them down very quickly if they do that. It’s called an insurrection. I’m wondering why you want to use that kind of rhetoric when there’s such a —
PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP: The question was asked to me if you have violent demonstrations. Yes. We will put it down very, very quickly if there is. Absolutely. And I think the American public wants to see that. Yeah? OAN, please? OAN. Yeah.
QUESTION: Mr. President —
TRUMP: Look. If there’s any kind of demonstration of violence there will be nothing that interferes with this… vote. There’s going to be nothing. The biggest problem we have right now are the ballots. Millions of ballots going out. That’s the biggest problem. When you talk about other countries whether it’s China, Russia or many others that get mentioned they are in a much better position with these paper ballots to do something than they ever would be under the old system and that’s our biggest problem. Our biggest threat to this election is governors from opposing parties controlling ballots, millions of ballots. To me that’s a much bigger threat than foreign countries. Cause much of the stuff coming out about foreign countries turned out to be untrue.
What is true is that many elections have taken place over the last year and a half using this ballot system. They have been off by 5 percent, 10 percent, 15 percent I think I read one at 40 percent, 40 percent and these are small easy to control elections. This whole ballot system where you can send it in and it’s not even requested we’re not talking about it’s solicited they are unsolicited ballots and they are sent in. It is very dangerous for our country. And you know who knows that better than anybody? The Democrats. Look at what happened in Manhattan where they had this kind of an election and it was so fraudulent that it should never have been allowed to be called. We can have 5, 10, 15, 20 percent off we could have more than that. The ballots will be stolen. Who knows where they are going? Who knows where they are coming from? It’s not just he counting of the ballots, which by the way, which will take forever it will take forever.
You think November 3rd you might not have I guess at a certain point it goes to Congress. You know, at a certain point it goes to Congress you know that. This is a disgrace. This is being done on purpose. They know it’s no good. They know it’s–it’s going to be fraudulent. It’s going to be fraud all over the place. Who is getting the ballots? Who is sending the ballots? They have people saying you don’t need a verified signature. This is a serious threat to our democracy. And the Democrats know that. All we’re asking if you solicit the ballot you go through a process. You ask for a ballot because you can’t be there for a large number of reasons for whatever I’m doing it myself. I won’t be able to be in Florida. You solicit and you send it back. You do it and you send it back. That is a process that you go through. And it’s pretty secure. I used the word pretty secure. I guess nothing is fool proof.
But what is pretty close what is the most fool proof thing the thing that really works is you go to the ballot box. It’s going to be very safe. I think by that time COVID will be even lower. It is going to be very low. It is going to be a very safe process. We did it during World War I. We did it during World War II. The biggest threat to this election is these unsolicited ballots sent out by the millions controlled by governors like in Nevada, who is a political person. Very political but far beyond being governor where they tried to stop you from making a speech unsuccessfully. But we had to move around a lot. Had to move quickly. So this same guy that tried to stop you from making free speech outside not inside but outside they forced us inside because of what they did but outside. This is the guy that is controlling ballots. Then you look at Pennsylvania. You look at other places. It is a big threat.
