President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday evening, referencing Paterson’s (or, Patterson, as the President wrote) vote-by-mail municipal election in May and the chaotic nature of the city’s election (which resulted in fraud charges against a Councilman and Councilman-elect):
Absentee Ballots are fine. A person has to go through a process to get and use them. Mail-In Voting, on the other hand, will lead to the most corrupt Election is USA history. Bad things happen with Mail-Ins. Just look at Special Election in Patterson, N.J. 19% of Ballots a FRAUD!
