Trump Promotes Voter ID, Says ‘a Lot of People Cheat With Mail-In Voting’

By Newsweek. President Donald Trump said on Friday that he rejected the idea of mail-in voting and endorsed the concept of Voter ID, which he referred to as “the real deal.”

Trump said people should show up to the polls in person and cast their votes after presenting the proper identification.

And it shouldn’t mail-in voting, it should be you go to a booth and you proudly display yourself.” (Read more from “Trump Promotes Voter ID, Says ‘a Lot of People Cheat With Mail-In Voting'” HERE)
