President Trump on Tuesday encouraged voters in Florida to cast their ballots via mail, in an abrupt change of tone from weeks of criticism of absentee voting.
“Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True,” the president tweeted.
“Florida’s Voting system has been cleaned up (we defeated Democrats attempts at change), so in Florida I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail! #MAGA.”
Last year, Trump changed his official residence from New York to Florida, which is struggling through one of the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the nation. He used an absentee ballot in New York in 2018 and has applied for one in Florida, according to democracy21.org.
