During a White House briefing Thursday afternoon, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany explained to reporters, with slides, detailed data and news stories, that voter fraud as a result of mass vote-by-mail schemes is in fact a real problem. 

"The media is very concerned about the integrity of our elections but when it comes to mail-in ballots, all of a sudden, the concern for election security melts away," McEnany said. "I want to note there was a Pew study done that shows there is plenty of reason to believe that in a mass mail-in system that there is fraud. They estimated that approximately 24-million, one out of every eight voters registered in the U.S., are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate."

"These are people who are on voter registrations that have not been maintained, have not been kept up. More than 1.8 million have been deceased," she continued. 

She also explained the difference between absentee voting and a mass mail-in voting system. 

"The President is okay with mail-in voting so long as you have a reason. He's not okay with mass mail-in voting where you auto-send to all of these voter rolls, to people who are dead who are subject to fraud," she continued. "This can hurt both parties. I would note that a bipartisan commission, led in part by President Jimmy Carter, a democrat, concluded that mail-in ballots 'remain the largest source of potential voter fraud' so moving the entire country to that system doesn't make sense and doing so in a hurried fashion ahead of November, just go look at the Democrat Iowa caucus and how it worked out when they tried to move to a new system."

President Trump has been sounding the alarm for days after California Governor Gavin Newsom declared California will vote by mail until further notice. Ballots have been sent to all registered voters, including those who are dead, in California.
