US President Donald Trump raised his concerns regarding the possibility of widespread mail-in ballots for the presidential elections in November, alleging it would facilitate electoral fraud benefiting the Democratic Party. Trump made the comments while talking to journalists in Washington DC on Friday.
Trump’s comments took place against the backdrop of mail-in voting being officialised across several states in order to ensure the safety of voters during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Everyone knows mail-in ballots are a disaster. You just have to take a look at the last recent – take a look at New York City. Look at New York. They’re still counting your ballots, do you know that? They had a race, a small race by comparison. By comparison, tiny. It’s so messed up, they have no idea. There are ballots missing. Thousands and thousands of ballots are missing,” said Trump.
“You won’t know the election result for weeks, months, maybe years after. Maybe you’ll never know the election result. And that’s what I’m concerned with. It’ll be fixed. It’ll be rigged. People ought to get smart,” he stated, adding that he favours absentee ballots.
