Washington Free Beacon editor in chief Matthew Continetti said the Trump campaign’s defense of the Electoral College wins “on the merits” against progressive calls to abolish the institution. He defended it as ensuring “our elections are not dominated by population centers” during an appearance on Fox News’s The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino Wednesday afternoon.
“The Trump campaign is going back at congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her calls for the Electoral College to be banned,” host Dana Perino said.
She then read an email from the Trump campaign responding to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D., N.Y.) recent call to abolish the Electoral College.
“Protect the Electoral College. Socialist representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently called for abolishing the EC. Remind her that this country belongs to Americans from every zip code, not just coastal elites and mega liberal donors. This is our country, not theirs,” Perino read.
It is also highlighted that the progressive Democrats want to pack the courts and end the filibuster.
