Former President Donald Trump is sending his supporters an intriguing message if he wants to win an election: don’t worry about voting.
During a campaign event in Derry, New Hampshire, Trump told his supporters they need to watch people voting to ensure there is no rascality happening while ballots are being cast.
Yet, for someone who purportedly wants to win an election, his next message was odd.
“We have to be careful. You got to get out there and watch those voters,” Trump said.
He added, “You don’t have to vote, don’t worry about voting. We got plenty of votes.”

Well, unfortunately, someone has to be the bearer of bad news and inform Mr. Trump he did not, in fact, have plenty of votes when it came to 2020, which is why he is the former president.
If voters listened to Trump’s message, it would be like watching your friend’s laptop be stolen and doing nothing because he only asked you to watch it and did not specify you should step in to prevent a theft.
And again, there is no evidence widespread fraud altered the results of the 2020 election.
But if you believe the election was stolen, shouldn’t you be encouraging people to vote en masse to make it harder to steal? Why would you tell people not to vote? Why would you intentionally make it easier for the other party to win?
However, those are just polls. And what people tell pollsters in the comfort of their homes when there is no real consequence, could very well be different than when it comes to being in the voting booth knowing their ballot could have an impact on who wins the presidency.
Either way, if he loses, he better not whine about fraud because he just told his supporters not to worry about voting.
