WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump is railing against mail-in balloting that in some cases has been promoted by his own reelection campaign.

He's alleging without evidence that it leads to “total election fraud.”

A day earlier, Mr. Trump threatened to pull federal money for states that support the practice.

Mr. Trump says he doesn't want “anyone to do mail-in ballots."

Mr. Trump has voted by mail absentee as recently as this March in Florida’s Republican presidential primary.

He did say he'd support exceptions for those who are sick or are president.

Republicans’ claims that mailing ballots to all voters creates widespread fraud are not backed up by evidence from the five states that use this method.
