Trump's tweet comes on the heels of widespread vote-counting problems after New York's mail-in-voting election which was caused by the pandemic.

New York Democrat candidate Suraj Patel, who is running against U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, is suing over the mail-in voting problems, pointing out that 30% of mail-in ballots received in his Brooklyn congressional district were discarded.

President Trump's Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany blasted New York's vote counting as an "absolute catastrophe" and a reason to question voting by mail.
