Trump Threatens Michigan and Nevada Over Voting Decisions

President Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding from Michigan and Nevada over the states’ attempts to do mail-in voting.

According to The Hill:

President Trump on Wednesday threatened to withhold federal funding to Michigan after its secretary of state, Jocelyn Benson (D), announced all of the state’s registered voters would receive applications for absentee ballots in the mail this year.

Trump falsely claimed that Benson sent ballots, and not ballot applications, to the state’s registered voters and that the step was done “illegally.” The president threatened to withhold funding if the state did not reverse course, suggesting its move would encourage voter fraud. Trump later threatened to suspend federal funding to Nevada, which is holding a mail-in primary election, claiming the state was creating a “great Voter Fraud scenario” and allow people to “cheat in elections.”

“Breaking: Michigan sends absentee ballots to 7.7 million people ahead of Primaries and the General Election,” Trump tweeted. “This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!”

Trump copied Acting Office of Management and Budget Director Russ Vought, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and the Treasury Department on his tweet about Michigan and also copied Vought and the Treasury Department on the post about Nevada.

Experts say overall cases of voter fraud with the mail-in program are rare but did acknowledge that it is highly susceptible to fraud.

Please threaten funds to Maryland as well. All voters were sent ABSENTEE BALLOTS that was slipped into an Executive Order Governor RINO Hogan declared back in March. Obviously, this was not advertised and was a huge surprise to the majority of us. We have SO many problems going on here in Maryland and no one to help, for instance: 1) after Hogan said Maryland wsa reopening on March 15, 2020 — we were all frustrated and disappointed to hear that the decision had actually been turned over to county bureaucrats and, as of now, at least three of the largest counties in Maryland: Baltimore, Anne Arundel and Montgomery, have been issued the royal proclamation by these bureaucrats that we will NOT be opening and the democratic C.E. “JohnnyO” (a silly little man) has given no pressers nor explanations, he’s only said is “he has no idea when he will reopen the County”. I can only speak about Baltimore County but we did EVERYTHING asked of us and our numbers are consistently going down. JohnnyO is not a public health official, he is a tyrant who has injured our County in many other ways. He is an egotist and on a power trip right now and doesn’t care that our businesses, our families, our fellow citizens are literally dying. I see you tweeting quite a bit about other states, please don’t forget us just because we have a nominal republican as governor. Speaking of which, we would also like to why Hogan took $9.9 million from taxpayers so his South Korean wife could broker a deal for more equipment. What we DO know is that only a small amount have been distributed and in Hogan’s own words “The 500,000 pieces of equipment we purchased from South Korea are in an ‘undisclosed location being watched by the National Guard SO THE FEDS DO NOT STEAL THEM!” (What a shocking thing for a governor to say!) Please, can you find out whether these have even been tested by the FDA? Are the kits “GOOD” kits that could be used now, especially since the Mayor of Baltimore City is constantly on TV saying how they would re-open until JULY 31st because they don’t have the testing equipment they need.

So, please, the Citizens of Baltimore DESPERATELY need some answers and my questions to the County Executive, the Governor and our local news go unheeded (except for the automatic submission everyone receives that answers NONE of the relevant questions). PLEASE — is there any one who can help us. Campaign for Liberty is doing what they can with the small amount of money they are working with but we need a much bigger voice than this. I understand Maryland is a blue state but we have many, many conservatives here who feel their mail-in votes for you, President Trump, will not be counted and who believe our voices are being deliberately silenced. With Tremendous Respect, sir, WE NEED HELP! This is a desperate SOS!

Declare these states votes fraudulent and do not allow them to participate in the American way of life. I concur and I live in Nevada.

Mail in should be adjudicated fraudulent
Exceptions: deployed military, documented absentee.
In dwelling residents: no mail ins.
Should invalidate states that carte blanc mail in votes from federal election participation.

No votes should be allowed via mail unless there is some kind of notary like process to verify citizenship and eligibility

We need to be protected from the Dems and voter fraud.

Please add Commiefornia to that list! Our dumbass Governor is the most crooked A-Hole I have ever seen. He gives illegal cockroach border jumpers drivers license’ and with that automatic voter registration! His latest stunt is guarantee those same illegals stimulus funds and an addition $175 million in tax payer funds so they get “free” healthcare at the same time cutting State employees wages by 10% and then begging for a state bailout! WTF!
Is it no wonder the term “Golden State” refers to “free money to everyone” also a loose reference to the “Golden” streams running down the San Francisco’s gutters! PATHETIC!

There is a very high probability that this entire mess is going to degrade into a bloody shooting war. These Socialist Devils cannot be reasoned with. They do not negotiate, they demand. The DNC is a typically totalitarian entity and it’s proven in the way in which they manipulate their own primaries. The God of these denizens of The DNC is $atan. The crevasse between The Constitutional Citizens, and The DNC cannot be bridged because of the lack of common sense which is currently the trend in the Party Of The Mule!
