Trump’s election attacks malign integrity of election workers
We were disappointed, but not surprised that the President threw a fit when the 2020 election failed to go his way. Executive orders don’t apply here; in this democratic republic, voters are in charge. Voters spoke loud and clear in record numbers. Continued unfounded, unverified claims of fraud and mismanagement are a direct insult to thousands of poll workers and election officials in every state, county and local precinct. Up to now, most defeated candidates have accepted results more or less with grace, out of respect for the election process, office and nation. The president failed to note each state has certain legal prerogatives for vote acceptance and counting. He can’t have it both ways. First, he labeled mail voting as fraud and tried to prevent it, and now he claims fraud when the mail votes favor Biden. We can wish the defeated president success in his next adventures.
