President Trump visited Michigan Thursday to meet with autoworkers and black leaders as the state eases restrictions but his comments on mail-in ballots took center stage.
"We don't want them to do mail-in ballots because it is going to lead to total election fraud," Trump said.
The president pushed back after Michigan sent ballot applications—not ballots themselves—to registered voters.
Michigan sends absentee ballot applications to 7.7 million people ahead of Primaries and the General Election. This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State.

Other states like Nevada are also exploring plans to abandon in-person voting because of health concerns over COVID-19.
"We don't want anyone to do mail-in ballots but if someone has to mail it in because they are sick or live in the White House and they have to vote in Florida and they won't be in Florida," Trump said. "If there is a reason for it that's OK."
While in Michigan, Trump will tour a Ford Plant in Southwest Detroit which converted operations to make ventilators. The president was asked if he plans to wear a mask.
"I don't know, we're going to look at it. A lot of people have asked me that." Trump said.
