"Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True. 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," the president tweeted on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, his press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, continued to rail on vote-by-mail as it has been rolled out more extensively in other states.
"It is rife with fraud, with delay, and that is what the president stands firmly against," she said, after reading off reports from Nevada about issues with vote-by-mail delivery systems there.
"There's a difference [in Florida]," Ms McEnany insisted. "The president repeatedly makes a difference," she said.
Ms McEnany clarified that when Mr Trump said the mail-in voting system had been "cleaned up" in Florida, he was referring to a settlement between a consortium of voting rights groups and state officials to expand early voting and voting education initiatives while also taking steps to secure the results of the election.
