[Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany The Media Is Taking The President Out Of Context]
Kayleigh, do you acknowledge that it is illegal in this country to vote twice in the same election?
[Kayleigh McEnany:] Are you referring to the President’s comments earlier today?
[Reporter:] I’m just asking you a basic yes or no question: Do you ~
[Kayleigh McEnany:] The President ~ the President does not ~
[Reporter:] ~ do you believe it is illegal to vote twice in this country?
[Kayleigh McEnany:] The President does not condone unlawful voting. The President has been very clear about this. I’m, once again, not surprised the media is taking the President out of context. Do you recall what the President said on this matter, specifically?
[Reporter:] I have it ~ I have it right here. Sure.
[Kayleigh McEnany:] Okay, maybe you should read it out for me then.
[Reporter:] Okay, so the President said that you should go to your poll ~ you should vote early by mail and you should go either early voting or day of and try to vote again. So, he is asking people to vote by mail and then to go down to the polling place on Election Day and to vote again, if their vote has ~ if they can’t confirm their vote has been counted.
[Kayleigh McEnany:] You’re missing a very crucial line from the President’s remarks: “If it is not tabulated,” meaning your mail-in vote, then you’re able to vote in person. “If it is not tabulated.” This is why ~
[Reporter:] Kayleigh, but there are at least five states in this country that do not count any mail-in votes until Election Day. So those votes won’t be counted until afterwards. So there’s no way to know whether or not their vote is counted.
[Kayleigh McEnany:] There’s a very simple answer, and this is how it works: First, a lot of states have what are called “electronic poll books,” and what this means is that, in real time, this is updated. So if your vote is counted, they check the electronic poll book, and you will not be able to vote in person because your vote has been counted.
There’s a secondary situation. So those who do not have electronic poll books ~ every single state in the country, you can cast a provisional ballot, and that is a ballot that is there. And if your ~ if your vote that you have not mailed in is not counted, they will then count the provisional ballot. And that is exactly what the President is referring to.
But what Democrats are doing is saying this: We want an entire new system for voting, one subject to fraud. Don’t take it from me; take it from Jimmy Carter, who said in 2005, as part of a bipartisan commission, “Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.” So what Democrats want you to do is say, “Trust us, but don’t verify. Don’t verify that your vote has been counted.”
This President is trying to enfranchise Americans, which is exactly what he’s been saying. He wants every American to have a vote, because he understands what Jimmy Carter understood and what so many of us understood ~ until the President started putting the focus on mail-in voting ~ and that was this: That it is subject to fraud, every vote should count, and every American should verify that their vote is counted by going to their polling location.
[Reporter:] But what do you say to the executive director of the ~
[Kayleigh McEnany:] John.
[Reporter:] ~ of the North Carolina Board of Electors who says that this would be ~ create a big problem on Election Night?
[Kayleigh McEnany:] What I would say is that the President has laid it out very clearly: You should verify your vote.
