AboutTrump.org

A searchable database containing over 30,000 curated and sourced quotes by and about Donald J. Trump, created in May 2017. We began adding quotes from Joe Biden soon after he became the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee on June 5, 2020. Therefore, searches on most topics will return more Trump than Biden quotes, but we are continuing to add quotes from both 2020 presidential election candidates through the November 3, 2020 election.

CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/VOTING/VOTE BY MAIL: [Audience question: “The big concern I’ve got is: How are you going to make sure that the election is fair and free from fraudulent absentee votes and mail-in ballots?”] “I think it’s the most important question I’ll be asked, because it’s a great question. So now we have a mail-in thing. And you see California — he’s sending out millions and millions of ballots. Where are they going? Where aren’t they going? Is the postman going to hand them out? Are they going to take them out of the mailboxes?…

You go to foreign countries — you know, they keep talking, “Oh, Russia and China and this…” Especially China, not Russia. Especially China. Are they going to print millions of ballots using the exact same paper, using the exact same machines? And are they going print ballots and then hand them in? And then, all of a sudden — it’s the biggest risk we have: the mail-in ballot, not so much the absentee ballot. Because an absentee — like, I’m in White House, and I have to vote in Florida, et cetera, et cetera…

We went through World War One, and we voted. We went through World War Two, and we voted. And now we have a virus. And by that time, it’ll be less and less. Why aren’t we going to vote? People want to vote.”
