Trump says he can issue order on mail-in voting but hasn’t gotten to it

U.S. President Trump holds a COVID-19 pandemic briefing at the White House in Washington

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that he has the right to issue an executive order on mail-in voting but hasn’t gotten to it yet, and he vowed to sue Nevada over a new law that would send mail-in ballots to every voter ahead of the November presidential election.

The remarks come as Trump has sought to stoke fears of voter fraud stemming from mail-in balloting, an option that some states see as a useful way to allow citizens to vote amid the surging coronavirus pandemic.
