Trump Sees Threat to Re-Election
(UnitedVoice.com) – Across the country, some states passed mail-in voting laws that allow people to vote from home instead of going into polling places.
On Thursday, President Trump told reporters that it was the single biggest threat to his re-election, and called it the “greatest rigged election in history” if mail-in ballots are allowed to move forward.
The Trump campaign and Republican National Convention (RNC) have filed lawsuits in Nevada, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Georgia to stop the mail-in ballots.

While some states passed laws allowing mail-in voting after COVID-19 to alleviate the spread of COVID-19, Pennsylvania enacted its mail-in ballot law in 2019. Trump and the RNC say mail-in voting invites election fraud and cheating.
Trump was asked if he would accept the results of the election. He responded by saying it’s unclear. After the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton (D) questioned the outcome after learning she won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College.
The Electoral College is the only means of determining the winner and loser of a presidential election. Democrats have never accepted Trump’s victory, and for three years, have sought reasons to impeach him and overturn the 2016 election.
There’s sure to be lots to see between now and the election in November. Stay tuned!
