Trump's Closing Debate Argument Was a Blizzard of Lies About Mail Voting - 2020-09-30
President Trump concluded a bullying and bellicose debate performance by lying repeatedly about mail-in votes as he once again refused to promise to accept a possible election loss.
"I hope it's going to be a fair election. If it's fair, I am 100% on board. But if I see tens of thousands of ballots being manipulated, I can't go along with that… it means you have a fraudulent election," he said. "They cheat."
There's overwhelming evidence and widespread agreement from voting experts that widespread voting fraud is extremely rare. But Trump has spent months attacking the process — while his lawyers fight in the courts to make sure that more mail voters will be disenfranchised by fighting any rule changes that would make their votes count.
