President Donald J. Trump weighed in on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s ruling that mail-in ballots with missing or incorrect dates cannot be counted on Election Day, holding that the decision should have invalidated the 2020 election results.
“They stated that the things that took place with the ballots in 2020 were not allowed … but they refused to rule against invalidating the election,” Trump noted at a Thursday rally in Sioux City, Iowa.
“In other words, I was right,” he continued. “And the court admitted that, but they say it only matters for future elections.”
The 45th president further noted that he had been leading in the state’s election results up until the counting abruptly stopped on election night and that the number of votes that would have been affected by the decision was “far more than needed to win.”
Adding that this was a “very unfair thing,” Trump added: “I’ve been treated so unfairly, what the hell difference does it make at this point? No, you’re favorite president … excuse me to all those young people, but your favorite president got screwed.”
Nonetheless, he encouraged voters to get out and vote on Nov. 8, stressing, “Tuesday, you have to crush the communists and go out to the ballot box.”
