President Trump has pointed to the massive mail-in-ballot voting schemes being attempted by some states as the biggest danger to the 2020 election.
According to Town Hall:
During an interview with Townhall at the White House Tuesday, President Donald Trump warned the 2020 election could be a “fraud” and “totally rigged” if Democrat governors move forward with massive mail-in-ballot voting schemes.
“This election’s going to be a fraud if they do that,” Trump said. “To me that’s the most dangerous thing about this election.”
“Who are they sending them to? Nobody as any idea,” he continued. “Look at just a few weeks ago. Paterson, New Jersey 20 percent of the ballots are a fraud. People are being locked up left and right. Look at the postmen being indicted, federal, terrible crimes.”
According to NJ.com two men in Paterson, one city councilman and another city councilman-elect, were recently charged by the New Jersey Attorney General for voter fraud after deliberately failing to “count 800 city ballots found scattered across different municipalities.” In West Virginia, a mail carrier pleaded guilty to altering ballots after “applications were mailed to all registered voters in West Virginia in April in a bid to encourage mail-in voting during the coronavirus pandemic.”
Trump stated that the process for absentee voting is different than the mail-in-ballot and works much better at preventing fraud.
