Trump’s False Election Fraud Claims Split Republicans

first_imgWithout naming Mr. Trump, Representative Adam Kinzinger of Illinois tweeted that “if you have legit concerns about fraud present EVIDENCE and take it to court. STOP Spreading debunked misinformation.”“This is getting insane,” he added. WASHINGTON — Republican reaction to President Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud ranged widely Friday, from vigorous agreement to sharp condemnations, and in between some carefully constructed statements supporting the idea of fair elections without any endorsement of the president’s fabricated assertions of an election conspiracy.“Here’s how this must work in our great country: Every legal vote should be counted,” Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky and the majority leader, wrote on Twitter Friday morning. “Any illegally-submitted ballots must not. All sides must get to observe the process. And the courts are here to apply the laws & resolve disputes.”- Advertisement – – Advertisement – “Republicans are facing a character test,” Mr. Bolton wrote on Twitter. “All candidates are entitled to pursue appropriate election-law remedies if they have evidence supporting their claims. They should certainly not lie. The first Republican president was called ‘Honest Abe’ for a reason.”The statements on Friday followed a wave of Republican reaction on Thursday night, including some defenses of Mr. Trump.“I don’t trust Philadelphia,” the newly re-elected Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said, also on Fox News, referring to the city where voters overwhelmingly chose Mr. Biden, helping eliminate Mr. Trump’s early lead. “I’m here tonight to stand with President Trump,” he said, echoing Mr. Trump’s claim that “mainstream” pollsters had inflated Democratic numbers to “suppress Republican votes.”But many more senior Republicans were at least indirectly critical of Mr. Trump, even after Mr. Trump’s son and former campaign manager publicly complained that more Republicans were not stepping forward to defend the embattled president.“Counting every vote is at the heart of democracy,” Mr. Romney wrote the night before his more forceful statement on Friday.“There is no defense for the President’s comments tonight undermining our Democratic process,” tweeted Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland, a Republican and frequent Trump critic. “No election or person is more important than our Democracy.”Several Republicans noted the absence of any specific evidence of substantive wrongdoing.“If a candidate believes a state is violating election laws they have a right to challenge it in court & produce evidence in support of their claims,” tweeted Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who reposted a message from Wednesday in which he said, “Taking days to count legally cast votes is NOT fraud. And court challenges to votes cast after the legal voting deadline is NOT suppression.” “That’s how Americans’ votes decide the result,” he added.Notably absent from Mr. McConnell’s statement was any suggestion that Democrats were stealing the election through an elaborate national conspiracy that included pollsters and the news media, as Mr. Trump asserted with no evidence in a rambling news conference on Thursday. It also implicitly rejected Mr. Trump’s fruitless calls for a halt to vote counting in states where his early leads have been threatened or eliminated.In a stinging statement, Senator Mitt Romney of Utah said that Mr. Trump, while free to request recounts and present valid evidence of fraud, “is wrong to say that the election was rigged, corrupt and stolen — doing so weakens the cause of freedom here and around the world, weakens the institutions that lie at the foundations of the republic, and recklessly inflames destructive and dangerous passions.” Updated Nov. 6, 2020, 2:36 p.m. ET As Mr. Trump and his die-hard allies maintained that the vote in Pennsylvania — where his early lead over former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., evaporated on Friday — was badly corrupted, that state’s Republican senator, Patrick J. Toomey, condemned Mr. Trump’s claims.“The president’s speech last night was very disturbing to me because he made very, very serious allegations without any evidence to support it,” Mr. Toomey told “CBS This Morning.”“I am not aware of any significant fraud, any significant wrongdoing,” he added.- Advertisement – Some Republicans seem prepared to defend Mr. Trump’s position without reservation, however.“President Trump won this election,” Mr. McCarthy told the Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Thursday night. “So everyone who’s listening: Do not be quiet. Do not be silent about this. We cannot allow this to happen before our very eyes.”Claiming that poll watchers have not been able to watch vote counts, Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas tweeted a link to Mr. Trump’s legal defense fund, with the headline, in all capital letters, “The Democrats Will Try to Steal This Election.” Her words were a contrast to those of her brothers, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, who have both made sweeping accusations of widespread fraud. Earlier in the morning, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted the groundless claim that there is “infinitely more evidence of voter fraud than there ever was of ‘Russia Collusion’ but strangely no one in the media wants to look into it.”Ms. Trump’s position also echoed one on Thursday evening from Vice President Mike Pence, shortly after the president spoke, which also did not include talk of conspiracy or fraud.“I Stand With President @realDonaldTrump. We must count every LEGAL vote,” Mr. Pence tweeted.Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser John R. Bolton, who since his acrimonious departure from the White House last summer has become a Trump critic, indirectly condemned his former boss without mentioning his name. Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida even told Fox News that if Mr. Trump were denied what he called a “fair” count, then state legislatures could consider “remedies,” suggesting that they might direct their electors to vote against their state’s election winner.But other Republican governors were much less supportive. Utah’s lieutenant governor, and now governor-elect, Spencer Cox, said “there is nothing nefarious about it taking a few days to count all legitimate votes.” Gov. Phil Scott of Vermont, who voted for Mr. Biden, called Mr. Trump’s Thursday comments “absolutely shameful.”Even Mr. Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump, in a superficially supportive tweet on Friday morning, made no claims of fraud or election theft.“Every legally cast vote should be counted. Every illegally cast vote should not. This should not be controversial,” Ms. Trump wrote. “This is not a partisan statement — free and fair elections are the foundation of our democracy.” – Advertisement –last_img read more

Syracuse rushing attack struggles against highly ranked Notre Dame run defense

first_imgEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — With one brilliantly executed fake punt in the third quarter, Riley Dixon nearly matched Syracuse’s rushing yards total from the first half.With that one carry, he also finished the game as the Orange’s leading rusher.The senior punter’s takeoff on a 4th-and-7 accounted for 42 of Syracuse’s 135 yards on the ground in SU’s 31-15 loss to No. 8 Notre Dame on Saturday at MetLife Stadium. The Fighting Irish flexed its muscle as one of the country’s Top-10 run defenses, limiting SU — aside from Dixon’s highlight-reel dash — to 3.2 yards per carry.SU head coach Scott Shafer said UND effectively threw various fronts at the Orange that disguised where pressure was coming from.“Just kept us off balance and we didn’t do a good job maintaining and sustaining our blocks up front at times and they got off their blocks,” Shafer said. “They did a hell of a job.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt was a far cry from the Orange’s outing against Maryland on Sept. 20, during which SU slashed the Terrapins for 370 total rushing yards.The Orange broke just three runs, including Dixon’s, longer than 10 yards against UND. Unable to establish the ground game early on, Syracuse often faced difficult third-down situations and converted just 3-of-15 of them in the game — and just one in the first half.“Notre Dame was really disciplined in what they were doing,” senior running back Prince-Tyson Gulley said. “We didn’t get the job done.”The Notre Dame defensive ends, SU quarterback Terrel Hunt said, kept to the outside like the Orange expected them to. Hunt said he knew he wouldn’t be able to run as much — he took off seven times Saturday compared to his 36 attempts in SU’s previous two games.Midway through the third quarter, SU failed to get enough push up front twice, on carries by Adonis Ameen-Moore and Hunt. From just outside the red zone, SU turned it over on downs with just 1 yard to gain to move the chains, trailing 21-3.Hunt, whose 7-yard touchdown run accounted for Syracuse’s only offensive score, said he “left it up” to the Orange’s tailbacks to carry the load of the running game.They finally started to carry it, but by then the scoreboard called for a change of plans.“Once we finally figured it out, we started moving the ball in the running game and then we had to abandon it,” left tackle Sean Hickey said. “We just have to communicate what they’re doing earlier and correct it earlier, so it doesn’t have to come to that.” Comments Published on September 29, 2014 at 12:03 am Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Kwesi Appiah can’t assure returnee trio call-ups

first_imgBlack Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has dropped hints that returnees Kevin-Prince Boateng and the Ayew brothers are not be guaranteed automatic call-up places for upcoming assignments.Last week, the Ghana Football Association confirmed Kevin Boateng, who resigned two years ago stating playing for club and country had a toll on his health, had ended his self-imposed exile and ready to rejoin his international teammates.Andre and Jordan Ayew also rescinded their decisions after talks with President John Mahama at the Flagstaff house last week.Ahead of Ghana’s crucial final 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Kumasi later this year, Appiah has intimated that the announcements by the trio does not mean they will automatically be invited to the team.“I always believe it is important all Ghanaian players make themselves available for selection,” said coach Appiah“And is you the coach that will decide whether you need this player at a particular time and it depends on the game that you are going to play and the tactics and if they can fit in you bring them in but as to they will by all means be in does not come in.” Ghana need a draw against the Chipolopolo to remain Group D leaders and progress to the play-offs.last_img read more
