Sen. Bernie Sanders could not keep out of the spotlight for too long and came out with a scathing interview with Politico.
Sanders Gives a Warning
Not much of a shocker that the socialist politician warned Americans on Friday that they must be ready for President Donald Trump to refuse to leave office if he loses the 2020 presidential election in November.

“Trump was saying … ‘the only way they can take this election away from us is if this is a rigged election,’” Sanders said in the interview. “Now he is making that statement at a time when virtually every national poll has him behind.”
The radical Democrat also relayed that Trump’s comments during a Fox News interview with Chris Wallace in July showed Trump’s unwillingness to concede a possible loss.
Trump told Wallace when asked whether he’d accept the election results, “I have to see. Look, you — I have to see. No, I’m not going to just say yes. I’m not going to say no, and I didn’t last time, either.”
Mail-In Voting Being Pushed
The known hypocrite, Sanders, will “alert the American people about what that nightmarish scenario might look like in order to prepare them for that possibility and talk about what we do if that happens.”
“Sanders said he is worried about what some Democratic strategists have called a “red mirage”: The appearance of a Trump lead on the night of the election in some battleground states, even if he lost, due to the fact that Republicans are more likely to vote in person, whereas many Democrats are planning to vote using mail ballots, which will take longer to count,” Politico wrote.
New: Bernie Sanders fears President Donald Trump will refuse to leave office if he loses reelection and is calling on Congress and the media to take action to prepare for that scenario now, he told me in an interview. “This is not just idle speculation." https://t.co/4ahBMFzleu

As Democrats continue to stunt for mail-in-voting, the senator is asking journalists and social media to spread the word to people that the results of the election could come days or weeks after November 3.
Sanders also made demands saying state legislatures should allow election workers to begin counting mail-in ballots before the election.
