President Trump once again courted controversy by calling a potential vote by mail system "corrupt." While many Democrats are pushing the change in order to keep voters safe while exercising their constitutional rights during the coronavirus threat, Trump (who voted by mail absentee in 2018) is adamantly against it. He said:
"Well, there’s a big difference between somebody that’s out of state and does a ballot and everything’s sealed, certified and everything else. You see what you have to do with the certifications," he said, claiming without evidence that there could otherwise be "thousands of people sitting in somebody’s living room signing ballots."
"No, I think mail in voting is a terrible thing. I think if you vote, you should go."
