Most Americans, including the former vice president Joe Biden, are worried about the aftermath of the election result if Trump loses his re-election bid. Will he cooperate for a smooth transition of power to the Democratic presidential nominee? Well, the answer looks like a doubtful no from the President. As Joe Biden warned previously, Trump might not support the transition of power that easily. On Wednesday, when asked the same question in the White House press briefing, Trump didn’t confirm it nor denied it. Instead, he doubted the reliability of election infrastructure, which is to be used on Election Day. Trump replied, “We are going to have to see what will happen. You know, I’ve been complaining about the ballots, and the ballots are a complete disaster.”
President Trump has started a campaign against the massive number of mail-in-ballots expected this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. He alleged that the vote-by-mail process is not secure enough when compared to other forms of voting. Even though numerous studies have revealed that voter fraud is very rare in the US, Trump continues to express doubts about the election infrastructure. He also put out baseless theories alleging that foreign actors are planning to send fake ballots, which was dismissed by his own intelligence community. Trump is also worried about the swing in critical states as the summer witnessed racial protests and mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic in the country. When quizzed about the public disturbances that could take place after the election, Trump said - “ Get rid of the ballots, you will have a very transfer - very peaceful. Frankly, there won’t be a transfer. There will be a continuation.”
He further added, “Ballots are out of control. You know it, and the Democrats also know it.” When asked about his response to Trump’s comments, Biden responded - “What country we are in? I’m facetious. Look, he says the most irrational things, I don’t know what to say.” Additionally, Biden’s campaign team also responded to POLITICO about Trump’s comments on passing the power. “The American people will decide the election. And the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House.
