President Trump urged Florida residents Tuesday to vote by mail, after months of criticizing mail-in voting as susceptible to fraud.
Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True, Mr. Trump tweeted. Floridas 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! #MAGA
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the president has always said that absentee voting for a reason is different than mass mail-out voting...
Florida Republican officials have expressed concern that the presidents campaign against mail-in voting is suppressing the number of GOP voters who are taking part in it, while Democrats are voting by mail in large numbers.

Two reversals in 24 hours--first the "Patriots Wear Masks" email last night, now support for vote by mail.

I remember pre-internet days.
Post Office threw out a cutoff date: Git your mail into the system by mm/dd/yy and we guarantee delivery before Christmas.
Having fun thinking how posties will process a flood of outgoing ballots, the the flood of return ballots, while folks buy Christmas gifts from amazon
This is not a reversal. He has been attacking the mail-in stuff the democrats are trying, sending unsolicited ballots to registered voters.
He has ALWAYS said that current absentee balloting, with safeguards, is acceptable.
This is normally what they accuse Trump of, doing things that discourage people from stuff; here he is working to make sure people understand what he is objecting to, and the media falsely claims he is changing his mind.
Maybe it is a set up to prove corruption.
I agree. Trump has not done a reversal. This crap reporting is annoying.
This is not a reversal since Trump has always supported absentee ballots because of the process one goes through to obtain an absentee ballot.
I would love for Pres. Trump, at his next press conference extol the health benefits of breathing. Then let’s see if the BLM/anQUEEFa thugs call oxygen RACIST and are dumb enough to stage a YYYUUUGGE breathing strike. Good way to “thin the herd” and “improve the breed”.
Man! Those are GREAT thoughts - if only we could get them implemented. Sure would fix a lot of things.
My son, who converses with several liberals online, said they are just as concerned about vote fraud and the republicans stealing the election, as we are about the dems doing it.
YES, they do!
Good Lord. There’s a difference between voting Absentee Ballots to be mailed in and the hap hazzard voting by mail where everyone gets a ballot. Mail boxes will be pilfered for ballots.
When I lived in Penn. a few years ago, I remember one election getting mailed an application for an absentee ballot.
But what I most remember is getting a Penn. ballot after I had already left the State. Not sure how up and up that State actually is. Remember how one precinct in Philadelphia received zero votes for Romney Rat?
“Two reversals in 24 hours—first the ‘Patriots Wear Masks’ email last night, now support for vote by mail.”
Headline is wrong. Not a reversal. Read President Trump’s original (July 30) tweet about mail-in ballots:
“With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history.”
The fraudulent media continues to distort what President Trump says. Then, they bury the facts needed to expose their lies by making them very hard to find.
My wife and I have voted absentee for years. Never had a problem, but this year we are going to deposit the ballots in a mailbox rather than putting them in our mailbox for pickup by our mail carrier. Why? Because we get Trump and GOP stuff in the mail and I’m not taking a chance an activist mailman might just lose our ballot on the way back to the post office. If it’s dropped in a mailbox there is no way to tell what the ballot inside says. Yes I’m paranoid.
President Trump did NOT make a blanket statement.
Shame on the Washington Times.

Just roll with it.
Bravo! Keep them guessing.
