Trump Attacks Vote-by-Mail While Telling Floridians to Vote-by-Mail

Donald Trump made a shameless and blatant contradiction on the topic of vote-by-mail yesterday. For weeks, Trump has been saying vote-by-mail will rig the election and that it’s a “disgrace.” Out of nowhere, Trump tweeted yesterday, “whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True. Florida’s Voting system has been cleaned up (we defeated Democrats attempts at change), so in Florida I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail! #MAGA” During his coronavirus press briefing, Trump followed up by saying Republican Governors Scott and DeSantis have done a great job, so it’s safe to vote by mail in Florida.

There is a lot of speculation as to why Trump wants Floridians to vote by mail. One theory is that the Trump campaign has internal polling showing they are likely to do better with mail-in votes in Florida. A more cynical, but certainly reasonable, idea is that Trump’s lackey Ron DeSantis will help sabotage the election in a scenario reminiscent of Bush vs. Gore. Whatever the reason, Trump looks absolutely foolish for this sudden reversal.
