On “Fox & Friends” on Monday, Trump said the U.S. is “never going to have a fair” presidential election with universal mail-in voting.
“I have to tell you, that if you go with this universal mail-in … tens of millions of ballots being sent to everybody and their dogs, dogs are getting them okay, people that have been dead for 25 years are getting them, you have to see what's happening. Then you're never going to have a fair election,” Trump said.
According to Trump, if universal mail-in voting were to push through, it would be “the greatest scam of all time.”

However, the president said he supported absentee ballots requiring a voter to request a ballot and additional in-person voting options, as reported by Fox News.
“Absentee ballots like in Florida – those are great things. You send for it. You ask for it. They send it to you; you send it back with your vote. Those are great,” Trump also stated.
Referring to past U.S. elections, Trump said “we voted during many crises.”
Fox News explained that fewer than ten states are conducting universal mail-in voting wherein ballots are sent to every registered voter. Other states are taking other measures such as sending absentee ballot applications.
