President Trump responds to calls for the elimination of the Electoral College

President Trump defended the Electoral College Tuesday after some 2020 Democratic contenders, such as Beto O’Rourke and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) suggested its removal.

Trump’s remarks: “The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win. With the Popular Vote, you go to… just the large States – the Cities would end up running the Country.” He also addressed his past comments regarding the Electoral College, who he described as “a disaster for a democracy” in 2012. “I used to like the idea of the Popular Vote, but now realize the Electoral College is far better for the U.S.A.” he wrote.

Warren: “My view is that every vote matters. And the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting and that means get rid of the Electoral College — and every vote counts.”

O’Rourke: I think there’s a lot to that. Because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor. It puts some states out of play altogether, they don’t feel like their votes really count.”

    We are NOT a democracy folks. We are a Constitutional Republic. Why can’t some of you get this straight?

    Of COURSE you moronic Leftists think the Electoral College should be eliminated — just one more impediment to your taking control of our country. Kinda like flooding us with illegals, then granting them Driver’s Licenses and the right to vote. Kinda like emptying the prisons and giving convicted felons the right to vote. Kinda like farming votes by visiting Rest Homes and cemeteries with a fistful of Absentee Ballots and “helping” the occupants fill them out. Kinda like lowering the voting age to 16 because those young skulls full of mush will probably vote for your “free” stuff. Anything and everything you can do to lie, cheat and steal an election will be your goal for the foreseeable future. You should all have your citizenship revoked and be deported to Venezuela.
