Subject: In-town pool report no. 5 — Election comments
Potus is still speaking at 12:48 p.m. He made some newsy comments below on “universal mail-in voting.” He also said it’s important to distinguish between absentee voting, “which we’re okay with,” and mail-in ballots.
“You’ll never have an election count on Nov. 3.”
“In my opinion, you wouldn’t be able to know the results of this election maybe weeks, months. Maybe never. I don’t think you’ll know two weeks later. I don’t think you’ll know four weeks later.”
“You know, there’s a theory that if you don’t know by the end of the year Crazy Nancy Pelosi becomes president.” The crowd booed at this.
“I say this for the media: This will be one of the greatest catastrophe in the history of our country. They all say I want to steal the election — just the opposite. I want the fairest results.”

NOTE: I misidentified the date of Robert Trump’s passing in my last pool report. He died Saturday, not Friday. Your pooler regrets the error.
