President Donald Trump, who’s often used absentee ballots to cast his own vote but has attacked the expanded use of mail-in ballots this year as rife with fraud, voted in person on Saturday.
“I’ll be in Florida, we’re doing rallies and then I’m going to vote in person,” Trump told reporters on Thursday. Trump voted by mail in Florida’s primary this year.
Trump arried at a polling site in West Palm Beach about 10 a.m. Eastern Time. He emerged several minutes later and talked to reporters.
“It was a very secure vote. Much more secure than when you send in a ballot, I can tell you that,” Trump said. “Everything was perfect, very strict, right by the rules. When you send in your ballot, it could never be secure like that. They’ve done a fantastic job over here.”
Asked by a reporter who he voted for, Trump smiled and said, “I voted for a guy named Trump,” before waving and walking away.
From there it’s on to rallies in Lumberton, North Carolina, Circleville, Ohio, and Waukesha, Wisconsin.
