Tucker: Amy Coney Barrett ‘represents everything that made this a great country,’ so Dems ‘despise her’

Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett is causing an uproar among Democrats and according to Tucker Carlson, her happy family is what’s driving them crazy.“Democrats know Amy Coney Barrett’s life refutes the lies they have pushed on the rest of us for decades, [so] they must destroy her personally,” the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host said…

President Trump on Thursday blamed Democrats’ push for funding for universal mail-in ballots as one of the reasons for a delay in negotiations on Capitol Hill over a fourth coronavirus stimulus package, claiming the practice in the 2020 election would cause “the greatest fraud in history.”

During an exclusive interview with FOX Business’ Maria Bartiromo on Thursday morning, the president said negotiations over the fourth economic stimulus relief package were held up, in part, due to Democrats’ demands for billions of dollars in funding toward mail-in voting.

TRUMP WARNS OF MAIL-IN VOTING ‘DISASTER’

“It’s their fault,” Trump said. “They want $3.5 billion for something that’s fraudulent … for the mail-in votes, universal mail-in ballots. They want $25 billion for the post office. They need that money so it can work and they can take these millions and millions of ballots.”

Trump added: “But if they don’t get those two items, then they can’t have mail-in ballots.”

The president went on to slam the practice, saying that ballots have been “sent to dogs” and “dead people,” citing states like Virginia, where he said more than “500,000 phony ballot applications were sent to voters,” and in New York, where mail-in voting caused a weekslong delay in announcing results for some races in the state’s primary.

“How would you like to have $3.5 billion for mail-in voting? You know how much money that is? They want $25 billion for the post office because the post office is going to have to go to town to get these ridiculous ballots in,” Trump said.

The president went on to say that “there is nothing wrong with getting out and voting” amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“They voted in World War I and in World War II,” Trump said. “They should have voter ID because Democrats scammed the system.”

He added, shifting back to negotiations on Capitol Hill, “If we don’t make a deal, that means they won’t get the money and they won’t have universal mail-in voting.”

REPUBLICANS WARN MAIL-IN-VOTING RHETORIC COULD BACKFIRE

The president went on to cite California, where he said the state is sending out “tens of millions of ballots.”

“Maybe they’ll go to everyone but Republicans,” he said. “We’re challenging it in court. It’s being challenged at many different levels.”

He added: “This will be the greatest fraud in history — this will be almost as fraudulent as Obama spying on my campaign.”

The president and the Republican Party have been warning for months about possible fraud connected to mail-in voting. The RNC and the Trump campaign have filed lawsuits to hit back against efforts by Democrats to overhaul voting laws in response to the pandemic.

Democrats, pushing back against the claims by Trump and the GOP, say that cases of actual voter fraud are limited and claim that Republicans are trying to suppress voter turnout to improve their chances of winning elections.

Meanwhile, the president went on to further slam Democrats, like freshman progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who he predicted would eventually challenge Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and said she would win.

The president, though, slammed her as a “poor student,” saying she “yaps” but said that Schumer “will be heated by her.”

“AOC will run against Chuck Schumer for the Senate and I think she’ll win.”

The president then said the “progressive Democrats are beating the regular Democrats.”

75% OF AMERICANS CAN VOTE BY MAIL THIS YEAR, REPORT SAYS

“Look at Eliot Engel! What happened to Engel? What happened? What happened?” He said. “Ya lost, Eliot.”

Trump was citing incumbent Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., who lost in his primary against progressive candidate Jamaal Bowman.

“I think we’re going to take the House because Nancy Pelosi is stone-cold crazy,” he said, predicting an election result for 2020. “We’re going to take back the House and we’re going to hold the presidency.”

He did say, though, that Republicans “will be fighting very hard in the Senate.”

“We have a couple of people who aren’t as supportive of Trump,” he said. “But if they don’t support Trump they’ll lose their election.”

SASSE HITS BACK AT TRUMP, SAYS HE ‘NEVER ASKED’ FOR HIS ENDORSEMENT

It is unclear which Republican senators the president was referring to, but earlier this week, the president sparred with Ben Sasse after the Republican senator from Nebraska criticized his executive actions over the weekend that would provide economic relief to American citizens amid the coronavirus pandemic as an “unconstitutional slop.”

“You have a few people who want to be cute, and I think they’re going to lose their elections,” Trump said. “And that’s a problem for the Senate.”
