Trump Takes Action To Thwart Absentee Ballot Fraud

More News For You

The 2020 election will surely be one we won’t soon forget for many reasons. One is that there is a very real possibility of a late-autumn resurgence of COVID-19. Thankfully, a number of municipalities have taken steps to ensure that every vote can safely be counted.

Some seem to think the solution is to have everyone in the nation vote by mail, this is similar to how absentee ballots already operate. This system has been around for decades, with members of the U.S. military overseas being some of the most prevalent contingents.

However, the Republicans have their fears. This kind of scenario is ripe for voter fraud and President Trump is going after those who are moving forward with plans to institute the scheme.

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced Tuesday that all registered voters in the crucial general election battleground state will be mailed an application to vote by mail in November so they do not have to risk exposure to the coronavirus by going out to the polls.

Trump was not a fan of the decision.

“Breaking: Michigan sends absentee ballots to 7.7 million people ahead of Primaries and the General Election. This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State,” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. “I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!”

But Michigan isn’t the only state on Trump’s list.

Trump later addressed Nevada’s decision to have mail-in votes for their June primary election and threatened to withhold funding from them as well. In that state, voters will not even have to request ballots through application forms; instead, voters will receive ballots in the mail.

“State of Nevada ‘thinks’ that they can send out illegal vote by mail ballots, creating a great Voter Fraud scenario for the State and the U.S.,” Trump tweeted. “They can’t! If they do, ‘I think’ I can hold up funds to the State. Sorry, but you must not cheat in elections.”

Of course the mainstream media will try to twist Trump’s actions and make him seem uncivilized.
