Trump calls Nevada’s vote on mail-in election an ‘Illegal late night coup’

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — President Donald Trump is lashing out on Twitter against Nevada lawmakers and Governor Steve Sisolak after a voter rights bill passed during the special session over the weekend.

Trump said the bill is a move to “steal” the state away from the Republicans in the November election.

The bill would allow for a mail-in ballots to be sent to all active voters and is expected to be signed into law Monday.

A tweet from Trump on Sunday said there should be litigation against Nevada and Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto responded on her Twitter account.

Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also issued a statement;

“Donald J. Trump has no integrity and no scruples. That’s why he’s lying about our state leaders and threatening a bogus lawsuit simply because Democrats made it easier for people to vote. His desperate tweets are the clearest sign he knows he’s going to lose in November. Trump should be more focused on preventing more deaths from this global pandemic and ensuring our economy recovers. I am proud of the work of Governor Sisolak, Speaker Frierson, and Majority Leader Cannizzaro for protecting Nevadans’ constitutional right to vote and making sure as many eligible voters as possible are able to make their voice heard safely in this election.”
