President Trump: Election Will Not Be ‘Fair’ With Widespread Mail-In Voting
President Donald Trump said Monday that he did not believe November’s election would be fair with widespread use of mail-in voting.
Trump: “The Greatest Scam Of All Time”
“I have to tell you, that if you go with this universal mail-in voting… tens of millions of ballots being sent to everybody and their dogs, dogs are getting them okay, people that have been dead for 25 years are getting them, you have to see what’s happening. You’re never going to have a fair election,” President Trump told Fox and Friends in an interview on Monday.
If mail-in voting was widely used, the President said that the election would end up being “the greatest scam of all time.” However, he clarified that he did support absentee ballots.
“Absentee ballots like in Florida, those are great things. you send for it. you ask for it. They send it to you, you send it back with your vote. Those are great,” Trump said.
It echoes a tweet from the President last month, where he argued that “with universal mail-in voting… 2020 will be the most inaccurate and fraudulent election in history,” describing it as a potential “great embarassment to the USA.”
With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???

Postal Voting Is A Recipe For Disaster!
The greatest scam of all time. That sounds about right. As much as the left want to ignore this, the President is absolutely spot on about mail-in voting, especially with how rampant voter fraud is already. Only last month, former Representative Michael Myers was charged with conspiring to violate voting rights, in a widespread ballot stuffing initiative in Philadelphia in the 1970s.
The Heritage Foundation also studied recent proven examples of voter fraud across the country, counting 1,290 proven instances, with 1,113 criminal convictions, and 48 civil penalties.
In the UK, where I’m from, with our pencil and paper ballot system, we have strong protections from voter fraud. But when we do have it, can you guess where that happens? That’s right, with our version of mail-in voting! It is a recipe for disaster if there is universal mail-in voting in one of the most contentious elections in history, and President Trump knows this!
