President Donald Trump of the United States has kicked against the use of universal Mail-in-Voting in the upcoming Presidential election of the United States of America, alleging that the process, if adopted, will be a great embarrassment to the USA.
Daily Times gathered that the President, who aired his opinion through his Twitter handle on Thursday, 30 July 2020 suggested that the Mail-In system promotes degrees of irregularities; he therefore advocated for the election to be postponed until people can properly, securely and safely vote
“With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE AND FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely, safely vote?” he said.
President Trump further criticized the damaging implications of the Mail-In Voting system, averring that it would give rise to a compromise of the voting process on different levels
“Mail-In Voting is already proving to be a catastrophic disaster. Even testing areas are way off. The Dems talk of foreign influence in voting, but they know that Mail In Voting is an easy way for foreign countries to enter the race. Even beyond that, there’s no accurate count!” Trump said via his Tweeter handle.
President Trump’s claims seem to have stemmed from the ratification of the Mail-In Voting system by more than 33 States in the US, particularly with regard to safety concerns in the light of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, which effectively discourages the traditional system of voting.
With the President currently at loggerheads with major world powers due to issues ranging from tough economic sanctions to his unbridled opinions regarding the likes of Germany and Russia in recent memory, it goes without a saying that any voting system which promotes foreign intervention could spell the beginning of the end of Trump’s administration.
