Trump Rails Against Michigan, Threatens To Cut Off Federal Funds After State Sends Absentee Ballots Amid Pandemic

Published

President Donald Trump fired off a raging tweet on Wednesday, blasting Michigan and threatening to cut off federal funding to the sate for sending out absentee ballots to voters.

“Michigan sends absentee ballots to 7.7 million people ahead of Primaries and the General Election,” the president wrote. “This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!”

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced this week that all registered voters in Michigan would receive ballots through the mail this year that they could send in to avoid having to go to the polls during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump’s threat to cut off funding to Michigan comes as the state deals with the twin crises of the pandemic and mass flooding.
