Reason: Trump Says Mail-in Votes Are Suspicious Because They Overwhelmingly Favor Joe Biden. He’s Wrong.

Judith Miller, Fox News contributer, and Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter: Never during his four-year term in office did a majority of Americans approve of him. And his Grand Old Party achieved this despite the still soaring COVID-19 pandemic, which Trump has continued claiming would “mysteriously disappear,” but which has cost the nation almost 230,000 lives […]
