Lara Trump and the President’s son Donald Trump Jr. urged voters to vote by mail in special elections.

According to CNN, while President Trump has “continuously rallied against voting by mail, a Republican National Committee (RNC) robocall in April voiced by his daughter-in-law Lara Trump said voting by mail could be done ‘safely and securely.’”

  • The call was sent “in support of Republican Mike Garcia in California’s 25th US House District special election, the race for the seat previously held by Democratic Rep. Katie Hill,” CNN reported. “It was one of three RNC robocalls identified by CNN’s KFile in which Lara Trump and the President’s son Donald Trump Jr. urged voters to vote by mail in special elections since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.”

"Nancy Pelosi and liberal Democrats are counting on you to sit on the sidelines this election, but you can prove them wrong. You can safely and securely vote for Mike Garcia by returning your mail in ballot by May 12," Lara Trump said in the April robocall following a disclaimer it was sponsored by the Republican National Committee.

  • Despite multiple studies that have “confirmed that there is no widespread voter fraud in this country, and millions of American vote by mail each year without systemic problems,” Democrats and Republicans are “engaged in heated legal battles around the rules for mail-in voting,” CNN wrote.

CNN reported that since March, Trump has continuously “opposed efforts to increase voting by mail during the coronavirus pandemic while making false claims that mail-in voting is rife with fraud. He tweeted on July 2, “Mail-In Ballots will lead to massive electoral fraud and a rigged 2020 Election.”
