US Election 2020: Donald Trump’s Speech Fact-Checked

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

This is the introductory paragraph.

President Trump spoke early on Friday about the US election count, making a number of accusations of fraud for which he did not provide evidence.

I liked some of the BBC’s analysis on this statement.

I’ve been talking about mail-in voting for a long time. It’s really destroyed our system. It’s a corrupt system and it makes people corrupt.

The BBC said.

The president himself has voted by post in the past. He lived outside the state he was registered in, Florida, and requested a postal vote.

Surely, that makes him a hypocrite. Or did voting by post make him corrupt?

  1. A hypocritical politician? Now that’s a novelty!

    • I used to live next-door to a well-respected politician. Some of the things, they told me, wouldn’t have helped their career.

  2. The positive thing is that some of the news channels took Trump off air partway through the broadcast because it was so full of lies and exaggerations. I think it is pretty certain that Biden will win, but I also think that Trump will be a very sore loser and will potentially stir up civil unrest.
