Trump To 'Strange' Dems: In Order To 'Abolish Electoral College, You've Got To Win At The Ballot Box!'
President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to school 2020 Democrat candidates who plan to abolish the Electoral College and lower the voting age to 16 if they win, which they won't.
"Campaigning for the Popular Vote is much easier & different than campaigning for the Electoral College. It’s like training for the 100-yard dash vs. a marathon," he wrote.
"The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win. With the Popular Vote, you go to just the large States - the Cities would end up running the Country," Trump added.
"Smaller States & the entire Midwest would end up losing all power - & we can’t let that happen. I used to like the idea of the Popular Vote, but now realize the Electoral College is far better for the U.S.A," Trump wrote.
"The Democrats are getting very 'strange.' They now want to change the voting age to 16, abolish the Electoral College, and Increase significantly the number of Supreme Court Justices. Actually, you’ve got to win it at the Ballot Box," Trump added.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi supports lowering the voting age to 16. "I think it’s really important to capture kids when they are in high school when they are interested in all of this, when they are learning about government, to be able to vote," Pelosi said.
2020 presidential candidate Democrat Beto O'Rourke and Sen. Elizabeth Warren both support abolishing the Electoral College if they becomes president.
"I think there’s a lot to that because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor. It puts some states out of play altogether. They don’t feel like their votes really count," he said.
"If we really want every person to vote and give them every reason to vote, we have to make sure their votes count and go to the candidate of their choosing. So I think there’s a lot of wisdom in that," he added.
Warren was speaking at a town hall on Tuesday. Warren said if she wins the 2020 election, she will "get rid of the Electoral College."
"Come to a general election, presidential candidates don’t come to places like Mississippi. They also don’t come to places like California or Massachusetts, because we’re not the battleground states,” she said.
“My view is that every vote matters and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting and that means get rid of the Electoral College — and every vote counts," she added.
"The Electoral College is enshrined in the Constitution and would require an amendment to alter, and an amendment involves calling a Constitutional convention (difficult) or obtaining 2/3 of the vote in both houses of Congress (nearly impossible)," The Daily Wire reported.
