Trailing in polls, Trump turns to discredited recount playbook


Pres. Trump is stepping up attacks on election integrity as both presidential campaigns prep for a potentially contested finish in 2020. MSNBC's Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber reports on the exact history and law that provides for a potentially lengthy counting of results in this exhaustive Special Report. Melber also provides evidence showing why pundits and politicians alike are wrong to prize arbitrary speed over legally mandated accuracy, how some in the media continued to repeat that kind of mistake in the 2018 election, and applies some insights about patience and philosophy from A$AP Ferg and Morgan Freeman to this unusual election year.
