Trump Threatens Michigan Over ILLEGAL Distribution of Mail-In Ballot Applications

VIDEO — Trump Fights Back in Fiery CPAC Speech

( As the Democrats continue to push for the implementation of the controversial mail-in voting system nationwide, President Donald Trump was forced to step in on Wednesday when Michigan state officials mailed absentee ballot applications to all voters. President Trump described how the move was illegal, and that not all residents in Michigan are eligible to apply for this kind of mail-in ballots.

“This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State,” Trump said on Twitter.

“I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!”

On Tuesday, Jocelyn Benson the Secretary of State for Michigan announced that all voters in the state would be sent absentee ballot applications to apply to vote by mail. That’s 7.7 million people given access to a voting system that is vulnerable to fraud and designed specifically for people who cannot leave the house to turn out and vote.

“By mailing applications, we have ensured that no Michigander has to choose between their health and their right to vote,” Benson announced in a press release. “Voting by mail is easy, convenient, safe, and secure, and every voter in Michigan has the right to do it.”

President Donald Trump, however, disagrees. Not only is the plan extremely expensive costing some $4.5 million (which Benson said would be paid for by funds distributed by the CARES Act,) but it isn’t allowed under current law.

President Trump also warned the State of Nevada after officials announced they would send out vote by mail ballots.

“State of Nevada ‘thinks’ that they can send out illegal vote by mail ballots, creating a great Voter Fraud scenario for the State and the U.S. They can’t!” he said.

“I ‘think’ I can hold up funds to the State,” he warned.

President Donald Trump and the Republicans stand largely opposed to implementing postal voting owing to the fact it allows people to cheat the system. Many states have outdated voter rolls that could result in people voting on behalf of people who are deceased or who have moved out of the state.
