That writer (deliberately?) left an important part out of that snippet of a quote.



Trump didn't say this needs to be done. He didn't say he wants this to be done. He only raised the question whether it should be done.

And he certainly didn't say that he would somehow do it.

Well why doesn't he "suggest" that maybe we should delay opening schools until it's safe?

The mail in voting is going to be a mess . Whichever party it benefits, the other party is going to go berserk. Book it.

Perhaps, because he didn't want to make that suggestion. Perhaps he just wanted to raise the question.

To state the bleeding obvious everything to Trump is geared toward trying to get his 'numbers' to look good for November. Hence his bleating demand that testing be "slowed down" because it makes him "look bad". He cares NOTHING for America or her citizens; it's all about him, his tissue-thin ego, his pathological need for adoration, and votes.

No. Hang three question marks on the tail end...or deliberately leave them off...and the meaning of the statement is totally different.



Who cares? Why are you deflecting?


...because it is in the same tweet as the comment re the election???

You must request an absentee ballot, and your identity is verified. Cheat-by-mail sends a ballot to every dog, toddler, and dead person on our highly inaccurate voter rolls. See the difference?

You have NO idea how absentee balloting works... Your identity is verified by your signature on your return envelope with the ballot. The signature is matched against your registration signature. Mail in voting is NO different...

In what universe?

In my State we register to vote; most often when we renew our State drivers license. When we do our signature is part of registering, so is our email if we have one (who doesn't). We recieve a ballot weeks before the election where we can study it, research the issues and make better choice's. Then we either drop it in the mail or take it to a drop box at our local library branch, we recieve emails of our ballots progress. Our signature is verified before our ballot is counted. There is almost no voting fraud in our state, which is informed if you move and if you die, you can't register a dog or cat or anyone not legaly elligible to vote. It's been working GREAT for many years.

We have high voter turnout. See the difference?

But to those that say tRump didn't say kids must go back to school (mycroft), he AbsaByGodLutely has and even threatened to withold Federal funding from school districts that don't open up.

It's not happening yet, thank God. It's what Democrats want to happen. It's what your side is calling for. Are you seriously that uninformed?

Almost no fraud, how reassuring. it's a well-known fact that the voter rolls of many states are highly inaccurate. And Democrats always always always fight against the cleaning up of these rolls. Why do you suppose that is? Even the system you described in your state, and I'll have to take your word for it, is not akin to what the Democrat Party is calling for in universal vote by mail.

Complete BS... Every ballot returned via mail is verified against the signature on the registration. The envelope isn't even opened until that verification passes. These processes have been around for decades... All that has been proposed is to allow people to vote this way across the country. Not every state allows unrestricted absentee voting. My state, Texas, for instance has very tight requirements on who can even request an absentee ballot.
