Trump claims voting by mail will result in ‘rigged election’

President Trump on Tuesday repeated his warning that allowing voting by mail will result in a “Rigged Election” and blasted California’s Democratic governor for his plan to send ballots to all residents of the state.

“There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one. That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote. This will be a Rigged Election. No way!,” the president continued.

The Republican National Committee and a number of GOP groups in California sued Gov. Gavin Newsom on Sunday, accusing him of an “illegal power grab” over his plan to send absentee ballots to all registered voters.

“Democrats continue to use this pandemic as a ploy to implement their partisan election agenda, and Governor Newsom’s executive order is the latest direct assault on the integrity of our elections,” Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.

“Newsom’s illegal power grab is a recipe for disaster that would destroy the confidence Californians deserve to have in the security of their vote.”

Newsom’s office defended the move, saying voting by mail is necessary to protect people’s health during the coronavirus pandemic.

“California will continue to defend Californians’ right to vote, including their right to vote by mail, and the right to hold an election that is safe, secure, and accessible. Voters shouldn’t have to choose between their health and their right to vote,” Newsom spokesman Jesse Melgar said in a statement.

Trump warns mail-in voting may result in 'greatest rigged election in history'.

Trump on Sunday warned it will “be the greatest Rigged Election in history” if states allow mail-in voting in November.

Last week, he threatened to “hold up” funding for Michigan and Nevada if they carry through with proposals to allow voting by mail because of the coronavirus.

He later backed off the threat.

Trump, who voted by mail in Florida’s primary election in March, pointed out the difference between what he did and what would happen if mail-in voting on a large scale is allowed.

“I’m at the White House. And I have to send a ballot to Florida, that makes sense. So if you needed for some reason, or if somebody’s not well, that’s one thing,” Trump told reporters at the White House last week. “But when you send out 7.7 million mail-in ballots there’s forgeries, there’s frankly duplication where they print ballots on the same kind of paper with the same kind of machinery and you can’t tell the difference.”
