Trump Admits He Is Holding Up Stimulus Package To Prevent Funding For Mail In Voting

Trump admits that damaging the ability of people to vote by mail is why he's refusing to make a deal on the coronavirus relief package with Democrats.

Donald Trump gave away the game - again - during a phone interview with Maria Bartiomo on FOX Business on Thursday morning. During Wednesday's press briefing (aka MAGA Rally), he said something similiar, but it was not as blunt as he was in this interview. He literally just admitted that he is committing voter fraud, large scale voter suppression, and that is corrupting the Postal Service for his own prsonal gain.

BARTIROMO: The democrats put on the table a $3 trillion plan. What specifically are they pushing for that is causing this breakdown in any deals? Nancy Pelosi said that the democrats want to -- and the white house is still miles apart on stimulus.

TRUMP: Well, they're right. And it's their fault. They want $3 and-a-half billion dollars for something that will turn out to be fraudulent. That's election money, basically. They want $3 and-a-half trillion -- billion dollars for the mail-in votes. Universal mail-in ballots, $3 and-a-half trillion. they want $25 billion, billion, for the post office. Now, they need that money in order to have the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots.

Now, in the meantime, they aren't getting there. by the way, those are just two items. If they don't get those two items, that means you can't have universal mail-in voting because they're not equipped to have it.

But just a minute later he is even MORE BLUNT about how he is intentionally sabotaging the United States Postal Service:

BARTIROMO: They want mail-in voting and they want money for the post office, this is one of the sticking points that's holding back stimulus for americans during this coronavirus.

TRUMP: That's one of them.

BARTIROMO: Wanting money for the post office for mail-in voting.

TRUMP: That's one of them. How would you like to have $3 and-a-half billion dollars, billion, for mail-in voting. billion. If you didn't have it -- you know how much money that is. people, like $3 and-a-half billion -- they want $25 billion for the post office because the post office is going to have to go to town to get these ridiculous ballots in. You know, there's nothing wrong with getting out and voting. you get out and vote. They voted during World War I and World War II and they should have voter ID because the democrats scammed the system. But two of the items are the post office and the $3 and-a-half billion dollars for mail-in voting.

Now, if we don't make a deal, that means they don't get the money. that means they can't have universal mail-in voting. They just can't have it.

If this is not yet another impeacable offense, I do not know what is. He is literally corrupting the United States Postal Service in an effort to sway the election in his favor and prevent people from voting.
