House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday that she would accept the results if President Donald Trump wins in November and is reelected as president.
However, Pelosi said that Democrats will attempt to focus on changes that were made to the U.S. Postal Service in recent days and “Russian interference.”
“Of course. But that doesnt mean that we will not shout out against his initiatives, whether its 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. “It doesnt 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.”
Without evidence, Pelosi said that Trump “welcomes it,” apparently referring to Russian interference. Trump has long said that he has not colluded with the Kremlin while former special counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence that his campaign colluded with Russia in 2016.
Last month, the U.S. National Counterintelligence and Security Center said China, Russia, and Iran are attempting to undermine the 2020 election. However, the agency placed special emphasis on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), saying that Beijing is ramping up its efforts to shape American policy and is pressuring political figures while countering criticism of the regime.
“It isnt 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,” she said.
Pelosi on Sunday called on people to ignore Trumps comments that sought to downplay the security 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 well make sure they turn out to vote.”
