“Of course. But that doesn’t mean that we will not shout out against his initiatives, whether it’s to tie up the Postal Service so that we will not have the opportunity for people to vote by mail, to not having to choose between their health and their vote,” Pelosi told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” “It doesn’t mean that we ignore the Russian interference into our election and they try to cloak it by saying, ‘Well, we look at many countries.’ No, the Russians 24/7 are interfering into our election.”
The California Democrat continued, “The President welcomes it. So, again, it isn’t a question of accepting the result. The question is, is making sure the public knows that they must vote, they must have a plan to vote, they must vote early because their playbook is one that has all kinds of obstacles to participation in our country.”
Pelosi on Sunday urged people to ignore Trump’s recent comments questioning the legitimacy of mail-in voting.
“The best thing, all the time, is to ignore what he has to say, because it has no association with fact, validity or truth,” Pelosi said. “He may have his bully pulpit, but we have the American people and we’ll make sure they turn out to vote.”
