Trump Appears To Admit He Wants To Fill SCOTUS Seat In Order To Steal Election

Donald Trump told the press on Tuesday that he wants to fill the vacant seat on the Supreme Court before the election because he says it will be a “scam.”

While ranting about mail-in voting, Trump told reporters that he wants the Supreme Court to make sure the election isn’t rigged.

“We need nine justices. You need that with the unsolicited millions of ballots that they’re sending. It’s a scam. It’s a hoax,” Trump falsely claimed. “Everybody knows that. And the Democrats know it better than anybody else.”

“So you’re going to need nine justices up there, I think it’s going to be very important,” he continued. “Because what they’re doing is a hoax, with the ballots, they’re sending out tens of millions of ballots, unsolicited — not where they’re being asked, but unsolicited.”

“And that’s a hoax and you’re going to need to have nine justices. So doing it before the election would be a very good thing, because you’re going to probably see it,” Trump argued. “Because what they’re doing is trying to sow confusion and everything else.”

Trump’s remarks drew backlash:
