Why is Trump attacking vote by mail? Is it possible he thinks the more people who vote the less chance he has of winning in November 2020?
"Trump said Thursday that he opposes both $3.6 billion in election aid for states and a $25 billion emergency bailout for the Postal Service because he wants to restrict how many Americans can vote by mail, part of a broader assault on mail-balloting that he has repeatedly claimed, without evidence, would invite widespread fraud. Trump, his family and many top aides, by contrast, have regularly voted by mail themselves."
Barack Obama is pushing back on Trump's attacks on the USPS and vote by mail.
“Everyone depends on the USPS. Seniors for their Social Security, veterans for their prescriptions, small businesses trying to keep their doors open,” Obama tweeted Friday. “They can’t be collateral damage for an administration more concerned with suppressing the vote than suppressing a virus.”
Americans need to question why any candidate for any office is not making it easier to vote so that the voice of the American people can be heard through the ballot box. An attack on supporting broad based, comprehensive voting is an attack on free speech.
It is at the ballot box where Americans can express their support or displeasure with their elected representatives.

All the president is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing, and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway.
