President Trump came under fire for what the media says was his message to Americans to vote twice. But President Trump, instead, called out leaders in states and local governments who are encouraging mail-in voting through pointing out a likely scenario that would lead to illegal voting. In an interview with local TV station in North Carolina, President Trump said that if their system is secure, then voters shouldn’t be able to vote twice.
President Trump said, “They will vote and then they are going to have to check their vote by going to the poll and voting that way because if it tabulates then they won’t be able to do that. So let them send it in, and let them go vote. And if the system is as good as they say it is, then they obviously won’t be able to vote. If it isn’t tabulated, they will be able to vote. So that’s the way it is, and that’s what they should do.”
The uproar was immediate, as Democrats said President Trump is telling people to vote twice, which is illegal. But really, Trump told his voters to make sure their vote is counted. He is also putting pressure on the polling stations to not allow room for fraudulent voting, which is a big concern for most Americans in this upcoming election.
While “experts” have said there is no precedent for mail-in voting fraud, that is because mail-in voting has never been done on a national level. Voters are concerned that there will be little oversight for confirming ballots are sent to real people living in their states, and have obvious questions of how states will know someone moved out, died, or filled out a ballot for another person. While there are legal ramifications if someone fills out a ballot for someone else, on such a wide-scale, the room for error is obvious.
And so President Trump told his voters to make sure their vote is counted. He echoed the same message while speaking at the Battleship North Carolina, saying, “Let them send it in, and let them go vote, and if their system’s as good as they say it is, then obviously they won’t be able to vote. If it isn’t tabulated, they’ll be able to vote.”
The “send it in and let them go vote,” is what the MSM and officials latched onto. Trump, however, has pointed to a serious concern over mail-in voting, and that is the ability for people to vote twice if they mail in a ballot and then go to the polls.
Today, Trump reiterated his message on twitter, writing, “Based on the massive number of Unsolicited & Solicited Ballots that will be sent to potential Voters for the upcoming 2020 Election, & in order for you to MAKE SURE YOUR VOTE COUNTS & IS COUNTED, SIGN & MAIL IN your Ballot as EARLY as possible. On Election Day, or Early Voting,…….go to your Polling Place to see whether or not your Mail In Vote has been Tabulated (Counted). If it has you will not be able to Vote & the Mail In System worked properly. If it has not been Counted, VOTE (which is a citizen’s right to do). If your Mail In Ballot arrives……..after you Vote, which it should not, that Ballot will not be used or counted in that your vote has already been cast & tabulated. YOU ARE NOW ASSURED THAT YOUR PRECIOUS VOTE HAS BEEN COUNTED, it hasn’t been “lost, thrown out, or in any way destroyed”. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!”
