President Donald Trump continued his attack on mail-in voting on Wednesday by claiming it would make the 2020 election “go on for years” due to delays.

There is no evidence of widespread corruption in mail-in voting that would delay the November results for “years,” and critics have accused the president of assailing such voting in order to undermine the results of the presidential election. Just yesterday, Trump appeared to reverse course on such voting, encouraging Floridians to vote by mail.

Trump claimed in an interview with Fox & Friends that Nevada and New Jersey both present proof that mail-in voting gives way to widespread fraud and corruption. Fox host Pete Hegseth threw back to the 2016 election by having Trump respond to Hillary Clinton’s allegation that Republicans are seeking to “sabotage” the upcoming election by attacking voting by mail.
