Mary Trump, the president’s psychologist niece who wrote the bestselling book Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, had three key questions:
Has any reasonable American ever
–doubted the validity of mail-in ballots?
–questioned the value of the postal service?
–questioned the legitimacy of an election before a single vote is cast?

Read a transcript of Trump’s briefing:
"Are you considering at any point an executive order concerning mail ballots?" Basically "yes, and"-ing the president on a premise that makes no sense.
