The Hill reports:
President Trump on Wednesday doubled down on his threat to withhold funding from states over plans to allow more voting to be conducted by mail, claiming that mail-in ballots are riddled with “tremendous fraud.”
“Mail-in ballots are very dangerous. There is tremendous fraud involved and tremendous illegality,” Trump told reporters during a meeting with Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) and Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly (R).
“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 and then send in thousands and thousands of fake ballots,” Trump said.
"Voting is an honor," Trump says to justify his opposition to mail-in voting (voting is actually a right!) pic.twitter.com/xxzLHbj2uU
