Trump says the people of North Carolina should vote twice – despite being illegal. News of america

Donald Trump has suggested that people in the state of North Carolina should vote twice in November, once in person and once by mail, although doing so is a crime.

In an interview with WECT-TV in Wilmington, North Carolina on Wednesday, Trump said on the security of mail-in votes, “Let them send it and let them vote.” “And if the system is as good as they say it is clear then they won’t be able to vote”.

It is illegal to vote more than once in an election.

President Trump said in a tweet, “President Trump outrageously encouraged the leaders of North Korea to break the law to help prevent chaos in our election”. “Make sure you vote, but don’t vote twice! I will do everything in my power to ensure that people’s will remains intact in November.”

The US Attorney General, William Barr, told CNN that Trump was “trying to demonstrate that the ability to monitor the system is not good”. When asked that it is illegal to vote twice, he said, “I don’t know what the law says in a particular state.”

Barr said mail-in ballots for the November 3 election could be vulnerable to fraud, with Trump echoing an argument condemning the use of voting by mail. Trump has previously stated that the voting method is susceptible to mass fraud, although experts say that any type of voter fraud is extremely rare in the United States.

Voting by mail is not new in the US – one in four voters cast presidential votes in 2016. A record number of mail-in ballots are expected for elections due to concerns about voting in person during the coronovirus epidemic.

Trump has accused Democrats of trying to steal the election by advancing the use of mail-in voting. Trump’s re-election campaign has recently sued states like New Jersey and Nevada to expand access to mail-in voting.

Democrats have said that Trump and fellow Republicans are attempting to suppress the vote to help in their favor.
