President Donald Trump says his administration plans to sue Nevada after the state's lawmakers passed a bill to mail active voters ballots ahead of the November election amid the coronavirus pandemic. (Aug. 3)
PRES. DONALD TRUMP: Now you're talking about Nevada, where last two nights ago, they went out in the darkness of night without people, without having any meetings of the public, without having anything, they approved the ridiculous-- you don't have to look at signatures. You don't have to approve anything. You can have double mailings. You can have all sorts of things. Nobody's ever seen anything like it. It's a disgrace. Honestly it's a disgrace.
Universal, mail-in ballots is going to be a great embarrassment to our country.
- Do you have an Executive Order--
PRES. DONALD TRUMP: Well, I have the right to do it. We haven't gotten there yet, but we'll see what happens. We will be suing in Nevada. And that's already been taken care of. We'll probably file something tomorrow.
Absentee ballots are great. Absentee ballots, they have to request them. They go through a process. They get them. But the universal, mail-in ballots have turned out to be a disaster. And what Nevada has been doing, if you look over the last few days, you have to look at what they've done. You can have two ballots. You can harvest. It's harvesting, so you can take thousands of ballots, put them together, and just dump them down on somebody's desk after a certain period of time.
You'll have somebody like the governor of Nevada come out with this massive plan out of nowhere to take millions of ballots and send them all over the place. You'll never know who won that state.
