Critics Celebrate As Trump Sabotages His Own Party's Efforts Again: 'Keep It Up'
"If you have mail-in voting, you automatically have fraud," Trump told Laura Ingraham.

Donald Trump trashed mail-in voting again, and people who wanted him to lose the election were all for it.

At a town hall event hosted by Fox News on Tuesday in South Carolina, host Laura Ingraham asked the former president to address voter concerns about mail-in ballots.

"What are you going to do to make sure we don't have problems going forward?" she asked.

"If you have mail-in voting, you automatically have fraud," Trump replied, repeating a lie he's been telling for years.

"OK, well, there's mail-in voting in Florida, and you won huge," Ingraham shot back, referring to Trump's 2020 victory in the state over President Joe Biden.

Trump has persistently attacked mail-in voting as rife with fraud, which he falsely claims cost him the 2020 election, even though he himself has voted by mail.

Following a disappointing midterm result for Republicans, party officials have amped up efforts to change voter attitudes about the process, encouraging Republican voters to request mail-in ballots and vote early.

Trump has both supported and then repeatedly undermined that messaging.

"Way to shave off a percent or two, Donnie. Keep it up," Rick Wilson, co-founder of The Lincoln Project, posted on X.

Other social media users who seemingly identified as Democrats encouraged Republicans to heed Trump's message.

See a snapshot of the reactions to his remark below.

I wholeheartedly endorse Republicans waiting until Election Day to vote. Do not vote early. Do not vote by mail. Wait wait wait. https://t.co/uRRM6bnTPt — Bradley P. Moss (@BradMossEsq) February 21, 2024

He is so insane and self destructive. https://t.co/kxKgPjMsA0 — Spiro's Ghost (@AntiToxicPeople) February 21, 2024

Months of the RNC's early voting/"Bank your vote" campaign down the drain https://t.co/AQhOFLXZAZ — Sophia Cai (@SophiaCai99) February 21, 2024

As a Democrat who enjoys winning a lot of elections, there are few things I love more than Trump trashing mail-in voting. https://t.co/lFM3OyIht3 — TrumpsTaxes (@TrumpsTaxes) February 21, 2024

As a Democrat I hope all Republicans listen to Trump and never vote by mail. — Alex Cole (@acnewsitics) February 21, 2024

Donald Trump voted by mail in the 2020 election.

Republicans — are you listening? ONLY vote on Election Day.
That's it.
Don't worry if you have some unforeseen emergency that day, you'll be fine. Totally. Believe me. https://t.co/6N3rOpmEpS

Basically Republicans, if you vote by mail the Deep State is probably going to steal it. Best to wait for Election Day. Don't mind the lines. And if one of those canvassers comes to your door trying to get you to do it, good chance they work for Soros and are tricking you. https://t.co/QJBrA61ZHG — Ron Filipkowski (@RonFilipkowski) February 21, 2024

It's not talked about enough how Trump is just … deeply and genuinely stupid. https://t.co/z1ESBELyM0 — Matthew Rein (@MatthewARein) February 21, 2024

I hope he never stops saying this. Shut up, Laura. https://t.co/RObqN8cWD0 — Josh (@JoshGreenberg27) February 21, 2024

This is all about Trump manufacturing  a claim that the election was stolen was stolen from him if he loses in November.

There is a reason most countries don’t allow no excuse mail in voting.

I wish one or some of these election deniers would prove to us that mail in votes were counted in the 2020 election that were not verified by some form of ID or signature.   it's very simple just prove it

every state uses some form of verification for mail in voting and if you think it didn't work or it was subverted in some way then show us your evidence . not your lips flapping ,  your evidence

In the United States, the verification process for mail-in votes is a critical aspect of ensuring the integrity of elections. Let’s delve into the steps involved:

  1. Request and Distribution:

    • Voters request an absentee ballot (also known as a mail-in ballot) from their local election office.
    • The ballot is then mailed to the voter’s registered address.
  2. Voter Authentication:

    • When returning the completed ballot, the voter must authenticate their identity.
    • Common methods include signature matching (comparing the signature on the ballot envelope with the voter’s registration signature) and providing relevant identification information.
  3. Ballot Receipt and Envelope Inspection:

    • Election officials receive the returned ballots.
    • They inspect the outer envelope for completeness, proper signatures, and any irregularities.
    • If there are issues (e.g., missing signature), the voter may be contacted to rectify them.
  4. Separation of Ballot and Identity:

    • The outer envelope is separated from the inner secrecy envelope containing the actual ballot.
    • This ensures anonymity while still allowing verification.
  5. Ballot Verification:

    • Officials verify that the voter is eligible (registered and not voting multiple times).
    • They check if the voter meets residency requirements and is not disqualified (e.g., due to a felony conviction).
  6. Counting Process:

    • The inner secrecy envelope is opened, and the ballot is removed.
    • The actual vote is counted, and the results are tallied.
  7. Secure Storage and Audit Trail:

    • Ballots are securely stored to maintain the chain of custody.
    • An audit trail is maintained, documenting each step of the process.
  8. Transparency and Oversight:

    • Observers from political parties, advocacy groups, and the public monitor the process.
    • Transparency ensures fairness and prevents tampering.

A foolproof eight step process to insure there is no voter fraud. /s

Why do so many countries heavily restrict mail in voting?
