Trump Speaks Out Against Mail-In Voting in November’s Election

President Donald Trump said he opposes mail-in voting in November’s general election, shutting down concerns that the coronavirus pandemic would keep people away from the polls.

“No, because I think a lot of people cheat with mail-in voting,” said Trump. “I think people should vote with ID, voter ID. I think voter ID is very important, and the reason they don’t want voter ID is because they intend to cheat.”

“It shouldn’t be mail-in voting,” he added. “It should be you go to a booth and you proudly display yourself. You don’t send it in the mail where people can pick up — all sorts of bad things can happen…by the time it gets in and is tabulated.”

"The general election will happen on November 3," Trump says, adding that he doesn't trust mail-in voting and wants Americans to vote in person with ID https://t.co/b9FtmY5sM4 pic.twitter.com/tJ6IRur7eC read more

Amid Crisis, Secret Service Signs Contract to Rent $45,000 Worth of Golf Carts

Trump lies about playing golf during embassy attack

The Secret Service has signed off on a $45,000 contract to rent a fleet of golf carts in Sterling, Virginia, where President Donald Trump owns a golf course. According to federal contracting data, the agency said they were necessary to protect a “dignitary” in the town.

The Secret Service “paid a West Virginia-registered company, Capitol Golf Cars and Utility Vehicles, to rent 30 carts until the end of September,” The Washington Post reported. The agency sought bids from two other companies before choosing Capitol, a West Virginia-based company founded in October. American Bridge, a super PAC that supports Democrats. identified the federal contract.

The Secret Service characterized the purchase as an “emergency order,” which Secret Service spokeswoman Cathy Milhoan said is not a security emergency.

“Rather, the term was used to signal a need for expedited handling of the procurement due to deadlines within the agency’s business processes,” she said in a statement.

Neither the president nor the White House could be reached for comment. Although Trump has not played golf since March 8, he has played golf on more than 350 days of his presidency.
