President Trump warned the nation of the dangers posed by universal mail-in voting Friday; saying the fraud-filled method will likely bring the “greatest election disaster” in American history.
“They think they’re going to send hundreds of millions of ballots all over the United States and it’s gonna come out,” he told reporters at the White House following a huddle with members from the National Association of Police Organizations. “You won’t know the election result for week months, maybe years after. Maybe you’ll never know the election result. That’s what I’m concerned with – it’ll be fixed. It’ll be rigged. People oughta get smart.”
“This is going to be the greatest election disaster in history,” he added. “And by the way, you guys like to talk to about Russia and China and other places? They’ll be able to forge ballots, they’ll forge them. They’ll do whatever they have to do.”
“You’re sending out hundreds of millions of universal mail-in ballots. Hundreds of millions. Where are they going? Who are they being sent to? It’s common sense,” Trump said. “I want an election, and a result, much more than you. I think we’re doing very well. … I don’t want to see a rigged election.”

TRUMP: ‘We’re Not Going to Destroy This Country’ with ‘Fraudulent’ Mail-In Voting
President Trump weighed-in Wednesday on the Democrats’ latest push to implement mail-in voting for the 2020 election; saying “you’re asking for fraud” and the process would “destroy this country.”
“Why should they not be allowed to mail it in?” asked one reporter.
“When you do all mail-in voting ballots you’re asking for fraud. People steal them out of mailboxes, people print them and then sign them… They take many ballots and put them all together and dump them,” said the President. “We’re not going to destroy this country by allowing things like that to happen.”
“This has more to do with fairness and honesty. When that starts happening you have a rigged system, that’s what would happen,” he added.

‘NO CHEATING’: Trump Threatens to Withhold Funding for States that Move to ‘Mail-In Voting’
President Trump threatened to withhold federal funding from “rogue states” that move to mail-in voting for the 2020 General Election Wednesday morning; saying the system will likely be fraught with fraud and other inaccuracies.
“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. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!” posted Trump on Twitter.
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. They can’t! If they do, “I think” I can hold up funds to the State. Sorry, but you must not cheat in elections. @RussVought45 @USTreasury
