From President Donald J. Trump:

Former President Donald Trump is offering a specific policy prescription for restoring Americans’ confidence in elections, saying it is time for states to return to paper ballots and to end no-excuses absentee ballots so that results can be finalized on Election Day and the nation can stop looking like a “laughing stock” to the world.

“I call them the fake vote store. That’s the mail in ballots. We shouldn’t have mail in ballots, unless somebody’s very, very sick or it’s military far away,” Trump told the Just the News, No Noise television show in a wide-ranging interview aired Wednesday night on the Real America’s Voice network.

The former president said the long delays — sometimes stretching days or a week or more — before many states finalize election results in close races has shaken America’s confidence and created doubt in foreign countries. The delays, he said, are from the prolific use of mail-in ballots in some states that can sometimes be counted several days after the election if they have an Election Day postmark.

“We should go to paper ballots, like they did in France. Thirty-six million people (voted) and they had no disputes. Everyone had paper ballots, and it was one-day voting. They didn’t store them over there in the corner, and you see the boxes moving all over the place,” he said.

The state “should go to one-day voting. They should go to paper ballots. And you would have elections that everybody could be proud of. Because right now, this country is a laughingstock all over the world. They’re laughing at our stupid elections,” he added.
