On Wednesday, reporters asked President Donald Trump to back up his repeated claims that mail-in voting is fraudulent — even though he himself has used it to vote in Florida.
Trump’s response was to bring up a lawsuit against voting rights that was settled by the right-wing group Judicial Watch — which didn’t actually establish anyone was voting illegally.
He added, “I’m not going to stand for” mail-in voting, and said, “you should have a voter ID.”
