5. When he tries to encourage mail in voting (for him) he tries to make a distinction...

Trump will say that absentee voting is fine when he wants to encourage Republicans to vote early. He then defines absentee voting as when a voter requests that an absentee ballot be mailed to them. He claims that what he opposes is having a State automatically send out ballots to all registered voters without any request for one first being made by an individual voter. BUT...

Trump is only that precise in his language when he wants people to vote by mail for him. He gladly gets vague about it when he wants to attack mail in voting in order to claim that there will be massive fraud committed. Very few states automatically send out ballots to voters, and of those only Nevada can be counted as a swing state in this election. Some additional states do automatically send out requests for absentee ballots to all registered voters, which a voter can then return in order to get mailed their ballot itself. I believe Trump intentionally confuses when a State automatically sends out actual ballots with when States automatically send out requests for ballots, and blasts all of it. Except he is sending out unsolicited requests for absentee ballots to voters himself!

What State do you live in? Does it begin processing absentee votes before Election Day? Trump is also making a huge deal about wanting the race to be called on the night Election Day, without vote counting dragging on for days or more. If your state doesn't do early processing of absentee votes, Trump is contributing to the likelihood that the election in your State may not be called on Election Day: the exact same thing that he claims feeds into fraud.
