This is Joan Greve, taking over for Martin Pengelly.
Trump has been quite active on Twitter this morning, now highlighting a conspiracy theory about MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, who has been a frequent target of the president’s ire.
More from the president, who really doesn’t like mail-in voting:
There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent. Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed.
“The Governor of California is sending Ballots to millions of people, anyone living in the state, no matter who they are or how they got there, will get one. That will be followed up with professionals telling all of these people, many of whom have never even thought of voting before, how, and for whom, to vote. This will be a Rigged Election. No way!”
