Former U.S. vice president Al Gore on Tuesday accused President Donald Trump of trying to вЂњkneel down the neck of democracy,вЂќ undermining the credibility of mail-order voting and sowing doubt about the fairness of the November 3 election. This was reported by Reuters.
вЂњHe doesn't seem to have any remorse for trying to break the social fabric and political balance of the American people and his strategy to raise doubts in advance,вЂќ Gore said.
He also called Trump's actions as a вЂњdespicable strategy.
Gore added that Americans must be prepared to count the votes, which lasts a few days after election day, and that a candidate who appears to be winning at first may end up losing after all ballots are counted.
The agency noted that Trump had previously made unfounded allegations that mail-order voting (a common phenomenon in U.S. elections expected to increase this year amid a coronavirus pandemic) would lead to widespread fraud and also refused to say he would accept the results if he lost to his Democrat rival Joe Biden.
Gore served as vice president from 1993 to 2001 during Bill Clinton's presidency and lost the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush,
We remind that on August 24, current US President Donald Trump was officially nominated as a candidate from the Republican Party at the upcoming presidential elections in November.
