The former president of the United States Barack Obama accused President Donald Trump on Friday of trying to “kneecap” the US Postal Service to suppress votes at the upcoming presidential elections in program for November 2020. The rare public rebuke of Trump arrived during a televised interview with the former tenant of the White House few days after the tycoon said he was opposed to increasing capital for the Postal Service and mail-in voting, which he believes allow selector fraud.

Obama told his former manager David Plouffe, on his podcast “Campaign HQ,” that Trump is clearly trying to discourage Americans from voting in a way that is unique to modern political history of the US. “What we’ve never seen before is a president say, ‘I’m going to try to actively kneecap the Postal Service to discourage voting, and I will be explicit about the reason I’m doing it.’

That’s sort of unheard of,” Obama added, expressing his concern about protecting the truthfulness of the election process amid a pandemic, including guarantying the health of polling staffs and making sure votes are calculated.

The former president of the USinvited youths to volunteer as poll labours, indicating that is hugely important.In an interview with Maria Bartiromo, on Fox Business Network on Thursday, Trump criticized Democrats of holding up crucial coronavirus contributes over demands the Postal Service be given extra money.

Trump has constantlystated that mail-in ballots are ripe for fraud and pointed to the weeks-long results delay in Rep. Carolyn Maloney’s congressional race in New York’s 12th district caused by postal ballots.

“They want $3.5 billion for something that’ll turn out to be fraudulent — that’s election money. Basically, they want $3.5 billion for the mail-in votes, OK,” Trump affirmed during Bartiromo’s interview. The president stressed that the democrats want $25 billionfor the post office, adding:“Now, they need that money in order to have the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots.”

Donald Trump’s ambiguity also re-launched another phony conspiracy theory: Kamala Harris could not be elected vice president of the United States. A ridiculous statement because in the US, anyone born in the country automatically becomes a citizen. And Kamala was born in Oakland, California.

The American Constitution requires that every natural born can compete in the elections for the office of President and Vice President as long as he’s 35 years old. Kamala Harris is 55, so we’re good to go.
