Can Trump Steal The Election Even Though He’s Ill?


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Marjorie Cohn about how Trump can still steal the 2020 election.

President Donald Trump for months has been laying the groundwork to contest the election results in November making clear that he would not accept defeat under any circumstances. His campaign has openly referred to his supporters as an “army,” and sent mailers to “patriots” promising that they can join the “Trump army” in exchange for a donation and the prize of a camouflage hat.

But now with his Covid-19 diagnosis Trump’s plans to steal the election may be thwarted. Still, his signaling to the Proud Boys hate group of armed men is a troubling sign that he may be willing to unleash paramilitary forces onto Democratic Party supporters in order to retain power.
