Trump vows election night legal challenges in key swing states

1

President Trump on Sunday night said his campaign will bring election night legal challenges to key swing states that were granted mail-in ballot extensions.

“We’re going to go in the night of – as soon as the election is over – we’re going in with our lawyers,” Trump told reporters in North Carolina before his third rally of the day.

The president blasted recent Supreme Court decisions that led to mail-in ballot extensions in certain states, including Pennsylvania and North Carolina.

Pennsylvania was granted a three-day extension, while ballots in the Tar Heel state will be counted if they arrive by Nov. 12. In order for the ballots to count, they must be postmarked before Election Day.

“I think it’s a terrible thing when ballots can be collected after an election,” Trump said Sunday night.

“I think it’s a terrible thing when people or states are allowed to tabulate ballots for a long period of time after the election is over, because it can only lead to one thing,” he said.

During his 2020 campaign, the president has repeatedly said that mail-in voting is rife with fraud. He repeated that claim Sunday night.

“I think there is great danger to it, and I think a lot of fraud and misuse can take place. I think it’s a terrible decision by the Supreme Court — a terrible decision,” Trump said.
