I am personally thrilled to hear President Donald Trump slamming California Governor Gavin Newsom and his executive order allowing registered voters to vote by mail in the November election. Trump said that it is a "thinly-veiled political tactic" to attempt to overthrow the election security.
JUST IN: the @realDonaldTrump campaign has responded to this news out of California.. Spox @TimMurtaugh tells @CNN said this move will “undermine election security”.

Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told CNN:
This is a thinly-veiled political tactic by Gov. Newsom to undermine election security. There’s a vast difference between people voting absentee by mail because they can’t be at the poll on Election Day versus mailing everyone a ballot – even those who didn’t request one – is a wide open opportunity for fraud.
California has a bad record on ensuring that people on the voter rolls still live at the same address, still reside in California, or are even still alive. Everyone is concerned about the safety of voters, but jeopardizing election security is the wrong way to go about it.
Newsom announced the signed order on Friday, “I signed an executive order that will allow every registered voter in California to receive a mail-in ballot. That mail-in ballot is important, but it’s not an exclusive substitute to physical locations.”
“People that are otherwise not familiar with mail-in ballots, are uncomfortable with them, may have disabilities, may have other issues that may preclude that as an appropriate option, we still want to have the appropriate number of physical sites for people to vote as well,” he added.

"That mail-in ballot is important, but it's not an exclusive substitute to physical locations," he adds. https://t.co/kBLOGxo6PG pic.twitter.com/hY5z6E0yTv
