Bill Clinton jokes Trump will be 'stacking sandbags' to stay in WH, Hillary warns Biden POTUS will 'cheat' to win
Bill also said, 'Beneath all these big questions are just Donald Trump's proven ability to manipulate the psyche of the people that he is trying to scare the hell out of'
Former President Bill Clinton, on Tuesday, September 1, joked that President Donald Trump will be "stacking sandbags" after the 2020 elections in November to fight off attempts to make him concede. The Democrat leader also predicted that Trump will not attend an inauguration for police rival and former Vice President Joe Biden if the latter wins. Bill made the statement while speaking along with his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, on an Instagram Live interview with American Urban Radio.
Host April Ryan, during the segment, also joked that Trump's "orange knuckles" won't let go of his Oval Office desk. Bill laughed at the remark and said: "He probably won't even come to Biden's inauguration. He'll be stacking sandbags around in the White House." Meanwhile, Hillary advised Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee, to not concede on the election night, November 3, saying that the number of mail-in votes will make tallying a difficult task.
"Do not concede under any circumstance because I believe the other side is going to cheat and sneak and try everything they possibly can," the former first lady and Trump's 2016 political rival advised to Biden. Trump, on previous, occasions has suggested that he might not accept the election results if mail-in voting is considered. The president, in a statement on Fox News in July, had said: "I have to see. No, I'm not going to just say yes. I'm not going to say no, and I didn't last time either."
Hillary also urged people registered to vote and to mail in their votes with plenty of time. The former first lady added that the Trump administration was attempting to sabotage the postal service in an effort to limit mail-in voting as they believe that a large turnout of mail-in votes won't be in their favor. "He is a clear and present danger to our freedoms, our liberties, our unity, and we've got to defeat him," she said. "There is no alternative."
President Trump, who is staunchly against mail-in voting, on July 30 had also suggested that this year's presidential elections should be delayed. The unprecedented suggestion from the Republican came while he was complaining about universal mail-in voting amid an ongoing pandemic. With rising calls for mail-in voting in the country amid the coronavirus crisis, Trump has been opposing the idea of voting by mail, stating it would not be an ideal democratic exercise and would lead to fraud. There is no evidence to support the president's idea that either absentee or mail-in ballots contribute to voter fraud.
Meanwhile, Bill accused Trump of using scare tactics, attempting to frighten people into voting for him. He said: "It's very important to keep in mind that beneath all these big questions you are asking are just Donald Trump's proven ability to manipulate the psyche of the people that he is trying to scare the hell out of."
"Now, this is a person who says, 'OK, I can't win on my own, but people will believe whatever I tell them as long as it's bad.' He cannot help who he is. He is who he is. He believes we're suckers," the former president added. "He believes he can say anything and make it work. He believes he can do anything and no one will stop [him]."
