Defeated Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton urged her party to “be ready” for the possibility that President Trump will not “go quietly” if he loses his re-election bid.
Appearing on The Daily Show, Clinton criticized the president’s opposition to mail-in ballots as a voter suppression scheme.
“It seems like America is on an ominous path to a November date when there is going to be a lot of questions in and around the election,” host Trevor Noah told Clinton. “Donald Trump is vehemently against mail-in voting. What do you make of this, and what do you think the path is to getting people the easiest access to casting their votes?”
“Republicans have two prongs to their strategy to try and win,” Clinton replied. “The first one is prevent as many people who think they won’t vote for them from voting. So you know, make the lines really long where young people vote, or African-Americans vote or Hispanics vote. Try to make vote-by-mail as difficult as possible, claim it’s fraudulent when indeed it’s not, in fact, that is how Donald Trump votes and everybody who knows about vote-by-mail understands that.”
