Trump chides Dems, foresees turbulent Nevada caucus: 'They can't count votes'

President Trump predicted chaos Friday on the eve the 2020 caucus in Nevada, saying Democrats want to win the White House and revamp health care but can’t even count.

“I hear their computers are all messed up, just like they were in Iowa,” Mr. Trump told supporters at the Las Vegas Convention Center. “They can’t count votes.”

Mr. Trump was referring to widespread reports that technological glitches will upend the caucus on Saturday, akin to app problems that seriously delayed caucus results in Iowa.

Senior Democrats say it’s under control, but Nevada volunteers and operatives are skittish.

After significant ribbing, Mr. Trump said he hopes the caucus doesn’t fall apart.

“I hope it doesn’t, actually,” Mr. Trump said. “I hope it doesn’t.”

Mr. Trump continues to troll Democrats across the country. He held rallies before Democrats voted in Iowa and New Hampshire and, in the coming weeks, will campaign in both Carolinas before their primaries.

The president slammed former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, saying he choked during the debate in Las Vegas the other night.

“He couldn’t breathe,” Mr. Trump said, before pivoting to Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. “How about that Pocahontas screaming about him?”

The president doesn’t have much to worry about on his side of the political ledger, since the Nevada GOP scrapping its presidential nominating process for 2020.

“I like ours better, we just take it,” Mr. Trump said.

Nevada has turned quite blue, however.

Its governor, Steve Sisolak, is a Democrat, both of its U.S. senators are Democrats and Mr. Trump lost Nevada to Hillary Clinton by over 2 percentage points in 2016.

Still, Mr. Trump predicted he’ll come out on top in November.

“We are going to win Nevada in a big, beautiful landslide,” Mr. Trump said.

They don’t necessarily want to count votes, not really, but the Left often likes to assume what votes should be. Which then many would like to assert is what was voted.

Do you expect accuracy from Common Core math? It’s more important to FEEL good about your answer.

Before the dem/socialist debate in Las Vegas someone screwed up and put an American Flag on the stage.

No problem, it was removed:

@TheDemocrats⁩ just realized that somebody screwed up and put an American flag on tonight’s debate stage. Calls were made. Flunkies were scrambled. Problem solved!!! #DemDebate #DemocraticDebate@DonaldJTrumpJr⁩ ⁦@RealJamesWoods⁩ ⁦@iheartmindypic.twitter.com/Kmpxm8xCQV— Steve Williams (@MAGA_Enhancer) February 20, 2020

He’s not wrong. They’re still counting Iowa caucus votes!

They want to decide what outcome they want, then make the votes believably match that.

“They can’t count votes.”

Counting votes.. I would say that particular task would require a certain amount of integrity.. Something the democratic party falls a little short of... Well, maybe a LOT short of.. Most of them nowadays couldn't be trusted to sort beans.. :)

The current Nevada Governor is under a petition effort to recall him. He is NOT popular except in Las Vegas. The rest of the state doesn’t like his ham-handed methods.

Trump lost to Hillary in Nevada last time because Clark County —Las Vegas—is highly populated by illegal invaders who work t the casino/hotels. They were allowed to vote & even taken to the polls by the casino shuttle buses.

Voter fraud is rampant in Nevada.
