“Trump flips, now encouraging Michigan residents to vote absentee”

Detroit News:

Trump’s latest messaging on mail-in voting marks a mercurial swing from May, when the president threatened to withhold funding from Michigan after Democratic Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson mailed absentee ballot applications to all of Michigan’s 7.7 million qualified voters. “Mail-in ballots are very dangerous. There’s tremendous fraud involved and tremendous illegality,” he said at the time without providing evidence.
