Washington: Gaffe-prone Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has made another slip, asking his supporters in Florida to go out and vote on November 28 — 20 days after the actual election date.
At a rally in Panama City, Trump urged his supporters to make sure they are registered to vote by the state’s registration deadline and told them to go out and vote on November 28. “There’s never been anything like this, so go and register, make sure you get out and vote November 28,” the nominee was quoted as saying.
While voters in Florida were allowed more time to make sure they would be able to vote in the general election, the deadline to cast their actual ballots is pretty strict — November 8.
Twitterati was quick to mock Trump over the gaffe. “When Trump voters go to the polls on November 28 and there’s no way to vote, you know what that means: RIGGED!” a netizen said.
Clinton blames Trump, WikiLeaks & Moscow
White Plains: The head of Hillary Clinton’s campaign team John Podesta slammed WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for helping Republican rival Donald Trump in the bitter White House race, while accusing Moscow of being behind the hack. The anti-secrecy website has published thousands of emails from John Podesta’s personal Gmail account since Friday, allegedly obtained by Russian hackers that though not damaging, lifts the veil behind her campaign and the missteps along the way.
