Once again, Donald Trump used his platform to claim that the upcoming election will be “rigged” by Democrats for allowing mail-in voting.
Trump threatened he will sign an executive order against mail-in voting, which he doesn’t have the authority to.

Trump’s own niece, Mary Trump, fired back at the president over his attacks on mail-in voting.
Has any reasonable American ever
–doubted the validity of mail-in ballots?
–questioned the value of the postal service?
–questioned the legitimacy of an election before a single vote is cast?

You can read the transcripts of Trump’s briefing below:
"Are you considering at any point an executive order concerning mail ballots?" Basically "yes, and"-ing the president on a premise that makes no sense.
