President Trump recently took aim at Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak after the state’s Democrat-controlled legislature passed a bill to mail all voting ballots in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a tweet Monday, he called the move a “late night coup” and noted that the post office would be unable to handle the traffic of mail-in voting without first preparing for it.

President Trump has been highly critical of mail-in voting by saying an all-mail election would be a total disaster.

“This will be catastrophic for our nation and you’ll see it,” he stated. “I’m always right about things like this, I guess I must be or I wouldn’t be sitting here.”

State lawmakers passed the bill Sunday and Gov. Sisolak is expected to sign it into law. The president called the move “outrageous” and said it “must be met with immediate litigation.”
