Trump making liberals lose their minds after requesting absentee ballot for local election4 minute read
President Trump requested a mail-in ballot for a local election in Palm Beach, Florida and the liberal media are losing their minds.
The Palm Beach Post was the first to report on the story as if it was a major scandal. Reciting that Trump requested the ballot “Despite his false claims about mail voting during the 2020 election cycle, Trump requested a mail ballot on Friday for the third time in his Palm Beach County voter history.”
During the disastrous 2020 presidential election, President Trump was one of the loudest voices against the unconstitutional changes to the mail-in/absentee voting process by key battleground states.
The media thinks they’ve caught Trump in a scandal of some sorts because he is using the system he criticized. But they’re missing the point, big time.
Donald Trump never said that mail-in voting shouldn’t exist, or that it shouldn’t be used. In fact he has used absentee ballot voting multiple times in the past. He called out the fact that the absentee process can be abused, and could be less secure than in-person voting. That’s undeniable common sense.
Trump has been a believer in the Florida mail-in voting system for years. In August, Trump tweeted “Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True. Florida’s Voting system has been cleaned up (we defeated Democrats attempts at change), so in Florida I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail!”
This is yet another nothing-burger. The media will report on anything that Trump is doing and make it into a big scandal since he is no longer in office.Follow us!
