While Donald Trump continues to be impatient and calls for ballots to stop being counted, his own adviser went on Fox News to claim that we should be patient and count “every legal vote.”
“I hope that the Biden campaign agrees with the Trump campaign that every legal vote should be counted, including in Arizona,” Conway told Fox News before complaining about the network’s decision to call Arizona for Joe Biden.
“Why are we in such a rush to finish this election prematurely?” she asked. “Let’s be patient, let’s take a deep breath, let’s count every legal vote. I think it’s a time to be methodical and not emotional.”
Less than an hour after Conway made her remarks, Trump wrote on Twitter: “STOP THE COUNT!”
Take a look at Conway’s remarks below:
Kellyanne Conway on Fox: "They spent three years investigating the president, impeaching the president. We can't wait three hours, three days, three weeks, to get a result? … What is the rush?"
