(ConservativePeak.com)- President Donald Trump, and most of his Republican colleagues, have been voices of reason over mail-in voting for months now. While Democrats are actively attempting to implement the fraud-ridden voting system on a national basis for the November election, President Trump is fighting back in the name of maintaining the integrity of our elections.
On Monday, President Trump said that the “illegal late night coup” by the Governor of Nevada to implement mail-in voting would make it impossible for Republicans to win the state as a result of the widespread voter fraud that typically comes with mail-in voting.

“Post Office could never handle the Traffic of Mail-In Votes without preparation,” Trump added. “Using Covid to steal the state. See you in Court!”
President Trump was responding to a tweet that showed a photograph of Trump supporters protesting the decision to force through mass mail-in voting and ballot harvesting.
On Sunday night, Nevada Democrats held an emergency legislative session and passed a bill that would send a ballot paper to every single registered voter in the state. It bypasses the control of the state’s Secretary of State, Barbara Cegavske, to control the running of elections. It means the state governor is granted powers to control the election after declaring a state of emergency. This is what President Trump is calling illegal, and what a court of law seems likely to consider illegal too.
What’s so troubling about the actions taken by the Governor of Nevada is that it goes beyond the already worrisome mail-in voting and advocated the ballot harvesting system that allows activists to collect ballots from voters’ homes and deliver them to official counters. It risks the possibility of ballot tampering and activists filling in ballots themselves. It is a controversial system that is legal in only a handful of states for this reason.
The introduction of mass mail-in voting could be just what the Democrats need in an election where voters are not enthusiastic about supporting their candidate. Lost ballots and election fraud could easily sway a tight race.
