Trump Reverses Course, Endorses Mail-In Voting for at Least One US State

We did not see this coming.

One of the most frequent concerns being expressed by President Trump in recent weeks has been the possibility that much of the 2020 election will be decided by mail-in ballots.

This course of action has been floated by several politicians as a way to mitigate the risks of in-person voting as the coronavirus crisis continues to affect everyday American lives.  At-risk individuals, such as the elderly and the immunocompromised, have been warned to steer clear of large crowds on account of the highly contagious nature of this potentially deadly illness.

For President Trump, the issue of election security has been his sticking point, with the Commander in Chief repeatedly insinuating that mailed ballots are not as safe as their in-person counterparts.

On Tuesday, however, Trump took a step back and actually appeared to endorse mail-in voting…at least for Florida.

President Trump tweeted Tuesday afternoon that Florida voters should vote by mail this November, claiming that there is nothing to worry about in terms of security.

The president has generally railed against mail-in voting, claiming that Democrats are going to take advantage of the system to commit fraud and rig the election against him. At this point, however, he appears confident that this will not be the case in the Sunshine State.

“Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True,” Trump said. “Florida’s Voting system has been cleaned up (we defeated Democrats attempts at change), so in Florida I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail!”

Outside of security concerns, President Trump has also stated that mail-in voting could cause the results of the election to not be known for months after the November election.
