Donald Trump is again taking to Twitter to whine about the recounts in the Florida elections – somehow oblivious to the fact that recounts are automatically triggered in that state. A recount in Florida is automatically triggered in that state if two candidates are within 0.5 points of each other, and a hand recount is mandated with a margin of 0.25 points or less.
“The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged,” Trump claimed without evidence. “An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night!”

“Florida accepts ballots from overseas and military voters through November 16.”
Thought you LOVED the military?

“Many ballots are missing or forged” The POTUS states publicly that a voter fraud has been committed without a shred of proof. Man you are a really sick little man. Scared and desperate that you will be found out for what you really are. So Weak, So Sad

“Must go with election night” are you friggin serious? So you are saying that absentee, mail in, military etc votes should not be counted? You are the most un American President on history. For shame.

People are following the law. I love how if the rules don’t go your way you attempt to change them!

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…..I know, Fascism beats a democratic process as far as you are concerned. Grow the fuck up, tiny hands. We know you have the attention span of a fruit fly but read a fucking book. Constitution might be a good start, asshole

False. Ballots ALWAYS come in late. Have you heard of mail? You are lying about an American election. Are you preparing for 2020?

(1) Destroy NATO so he can do what he wants.
(2) Weaken faith in Democracy in the world, especially America.
(3) Keep Americans fighting & divided.

I thought republicans were all for state rights and the feds not meddling in state affairs. Small govern much?

This is nothing new. “Trying to STEAL two big elections in Florida!” Trump tweeted from France on Saturday. “We are watching closely!”
