Those behind the anti-Trump conservative group known as The Lincoln Project are among the many Americans who are fed up with President Donald Trump’s belligerence towards the very foundation of American democracy. This week, Trump refused to even commit to a peaceful transfer of power following his time in office, insisting that if you “get rid of the ballots,” then there won’t even need to be a transfer at all; he’ll just continue in office. None of this nonsense is how democracy works! In a new video, The Lincoln Project insists, speaking for Americans as a whole, that “we will vote” and Trump “will go” — period.
As they put it in the caption:
‘#WeWillVote You will lose. You will go.’

The specific ballots that Trump seems to have been referring to with his insinuation that authorities could and/or should “get rid” of ballots are mail-ins. Trump has consistently alleged that “mail-in” and/or “universal mail-in” ballots are ripe with fraud, but this claim is baseless, even though he’s taken it so far that he has claimed — as The Lincoln Project noted in their new video — that the only way that he’ll lose if is the election is “rigged” against him. This claim is untrue; intelligence officials from within the Trump administration itself have rebuffed the president.
An FBI official, for instance, recently said that authorities “have not seen, to date, a coordinated national voter fraud effort during a major election and it would be extraordinarily difficult to change a federal election outcome through this type of model alone, given the range of processes that we need to be affected or compromised by an adversary at the local level.”
