Trump claimed the Democrats tried to steal the Pennsylvania election after the Conservative Supreme Court majority refused to stop a three-day extension of the election deadline.
A three day extension for Pennsylvania is a disaster for our nation and for Pennsylvania itself. The Democrats are trying to steal that election. We have to get out and VOTE in even larger numbers. The Great Red Wave is coming !!!
– Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 29, 2020
The part that Trump leaves out is that it was the Conservative Supreme Court majority that refused to hear the case from Pennsylvania State Republicans who called for the three-day extension to be blocked.
The Supreme Court that Republicans kicked off to get Amy Coney Barrett, who was not involved in the case, to reject Trump's offer not to have the Pennsylvanian votes counted.
Pennsylvania is an ascent for Trump. The national media has penned a narrative that Pennsylvania is a paper-thin state to be won, but the reality is that Biden's leadership in the state has been consistent and he's probably in better shape in Pennsylvania than any state like North Carolina where it leads , but polls suggest closer competition.
The only way Trump has more than one chance of winning Pennsylvania is by casting ballots, but the president has so far lost every lawsuit and challenge in Keystone State.
Trump explodes because he is running out of time and without the help of the Supreme Court, victory in Pennsylvania could be out of his reach.
