As the Democrats make it their sole purpose to shove mail-in voting down our throats, the president continues to fight back to ensure a fair election – and this tweet may have just won him that fight.
President Trump destroyed the Democrats’ logic by simply saying, “If you can protest in person, you can vote in person!”
The president’s tweet completely destroys the left-wing argument that voting is not “safe” due to the coronavirus.
Following the death of George Floyd – liberal officials all over have made exceptions to any coronavirus restrictions to encourage mass “social justice” protests for months now.
Earlier this week the president pointed out that if the Democrats get their way and unleash universal mail-in voting on the country – the U.S. is “never going to have a fair” presidential election.
“I have to tell you that if you go with this universal mail-in … 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. Then you’re never going to have a fair election,” Trump said.
Meanwhile, the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) on Tuesday sued New Jersey over Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order to send mail-in ballots to all registered voters, saying Murphy’s move is illegal and will create a “recipe for disaster” for voter fraud.
“In a direct usurpation of the legislature’s authority, Gov. Murphy issued Executive Order 177 … purporting to rewrite the election code for the November 2020 election. This brazen power grab was not authorized by state law and violates both the Elections Clause and Electors Clause of the U.S. Constitution and federal law,” the lawsuit alleges.
While fewer than 10 states currently have universal mail-in voting, where ballots are mailed to every registered voter, Democrats are pushing for the whole country to be under this system which is highly susceptible to voter fraud.
As the USPS has become a focal point in the battle over mail-in voting, the Democrats have pressured the fiscally struggling organization into suspending several cost-reduction efforts as Postmaster General Louis DeJoy – who had protestors show up to his home – looks “to avoid even the appearance of any impact on election mail.”
President Trump, meanwhile, said he’s currently taking steps to fix what he called a long-term “disaster” in the USPS’s finances. “This isn’t a Trump thing. This has been one of the disasters of the world, the way it’s been run,” Trump said. “What am I supposed to do, let it continue to be run badly?”
Trump also said he would support extending voting to include the weekend before Election Day and adding additional voting booths to ease crowding. “I would support all of that. That’s what you want to do,” Trump said. “I would be for opening more voting booths.”
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci said there is “no reason” Americans can’t vote in person for the 2020 presidential election.
“I think if carefully done, according to the guidelines, there’s no reason that I can see why that cannot be the case,” Fauci said during an ABC News interview. “If you go and wear a mask, if you observe the physical distancing, and don’t have a crowded situation, there’s no reason why [people] shouldn’t be able to do that.”
