Elections are not run by the Feds, Donnie. They are run by the states - each one of 50. And every one of those Secretaries of State runs the election according to their state's laws. So all of the ballots will be counted in due time.

BTW, what will you say if Biden has a massive lead on November 3rd?

It's not worth getting worked up about it every time he brings it up.

It's expected behavior and nothing new. It's simply not worth the effort.

He says stuff like this just to get a rise out of people. And, know what? It works every time.

But I am one of those that mailed my vote in. I really would not like the idea of someone screwing with my vote.

Twitter is more apt to do something about it than Facebook. Zuckerberg is more apt to roll over for a belly rub and a Snausage.

His strategy the entire campaign season has been to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the results, because he knows he's going to lose. Claiming everything from the voting process to the debates and so on have been biased and rigged against him. If nothing else, it makes his base become destructive thinking the election was stolen from Trump.

into Biden's column on election night it's all over for the obese Orange clown. The media narrative will be 'the Biden blowout is materializing'... etc etc. Trump is a coward and will crawl away meekly.

If they were postmarked before the election.
So Trump claiming "must have final results on November 3rd" is baloney.
