President Donald Trump indicated on Tuesday that he expects the Supreme Court, which he hopes will include his newly nominated Justice, will be the one to decide the fate of the 2020 election.
“I’m counting on them to look at the ballots.” Trump said during Tuesday evening’s presidential debate. “I hope we don’t need them,” he added. But the large numbers of anticipated mail-in ballots, Trump said, will inevitably mean questionable election results. “This is going to be a fraud like you have never seen,” he said.
Trump reiterated many of his prior, mostly dubious, condemnations of mail-in voting, casting the practice as susceptible to widespread fraud and declining to say that he’d abide by the certification of election results that determined he’d lost to former Vice President Joe Biden.
