The media gave a lot of attention to something Pres. Trump said this week while visiting North Carolina.
The president was asked about hundreds of thousands of voters who could vote by absentee in that state and whether he was "confident in that system."
Trump said that voters should "send it in and let them go vote and if their system is as good as they say it is then obviously they won't be able to vote. If it isn't tabulated they'll be able to vote." He said he doesn't like the idea of "unsolicited votes," speaking about what's known as universal mail-in voting, where states send out ballots to all registered voters, whether or not they requested them.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was asked about this yesterday and said the president's words were "taken out of context." She said Pres. Trump does not condon double voting or any unlawful voting.
