Sen. Tammy Duckworth Accuses Trump of Trying to ‘Undermine’ Americans’ Ability to Vote

President Donald Trump is receiving harsh criticism from Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) after she argued he is doing everything in his power to sabotage the 2020 presidential election.

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday, Duckworth explained how Trump is undermining the election with his attacks on mail-in voting.

“What keeps me up at night is the Postal Service. Donald Trump has done everything he can to undermine mail-in voting,” Duckworth said.

She added, “I voted by mail from Iraq in a combat zone, it was good enough for our troops in a combat zone, it’s good enough for all of us and Donald Trump is trying to undermine this election.”

Watch her comments below:

Duckworth noted Postmaster General Louis DeJoy testified on Friday in front of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee and announced the Postal Service would not return mail processing and sorting machines the agency has already removed.

She recognized DeJoy’s announcement as another way the Trump administration is trying to infringe upon Americans’ right to vote.

“We see a real determined effort by the Trump administration to undermine a very basic, fundamental rights of all Americans, and that is the ability to vote,” Duckworth said.

Duckworth’s comments come amid growing concerns of whether the Postal Service will be able to handle an expected influx of mail-in ballots ahead of the November election.

DeJoy testified the agency is “fully capable and committed” to making sure election mail is delivered to Americans safely and on-time, as IJR previously reported.

Trump continues to criticize mail-in voting.

He told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday the upcoming election will “be the greatest scam in history,” as IJR previously reported.

Trump also threatened to send law enforcement and U.S. attorneys to polling places across the United States to prevent voter fraud.

  1. “THEY ARE FOENDS (sic) OF THE GLOBALIST ILLUMINATI…” Harry

    I am confused, Harry.

    Did you copy & paste some of that trope? Globalist refers to white nationalist comments about Jews, so are YOU a white nationalist commenting on Jews?

    You do realize that using ALL CAPS for all of that makes you look unhinged, immature and not worth the time it takes to read it all, right?

    Your idea about getting rid of the Democratic Party suggests that YOU also want a one-party, fascistic state just like Dear Leader. THAT makes YOU a danger to this fragile democracy (or for the dense, a constitutional republic, which is ALSO a democracy).

    In case your forgot, “WE THE PEOPLE” refers to ALL of us, not just SOME of people like YOU.

    “TO CRIMINALLY CHARGE HE AND HIS ENTIRE FAMILY WITH
    TAX CRIMES” How does that expression go? If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime. Just because the weak Democrats didn’t get the complicit Senate to go along with the law doesn’t mean that he wasn’t guilty. He WAS found guilty in the House.

    You are one very confused soul, Harry.

  2. EXCELLENT QUESTION.
    THERE IS NO DEMOCRAT PARTY IN AMERICA. THE PARTY OF THE GREAT JFK DIED WITH HIS ASSASSINATION. THEY MORPHED INTO A RADICAL DEMOCRAT TERRORIST CULT . ANY POLITICAL ENTITY IN AMERICA WHO CONDONE AND ENABLE THE BLM AND ANTIFA GOONS NEED BE DISENFRANCHISED AS A POLITICAL PARTY AND BARRED FROM PARTICIPATING IN AMERICAN POLITICS. WE DID THIS TO THE AMERICAN NAZI CULT DURING WW 2 , AND MUST AGAIN DO SO TO THESE UNHINGED AMERICA DESTROYERS .
    OUR GREAT EMANCIPATOR PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN STATED:
    THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY AMERICA CAN BE DESTROYED, FROM WITHIN.
    SINCE PRESIDENT TRUMP BECAME THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE AND THEN PRESIDENT, THIS CULT OF SATAN’S SERPENTS HAVE ATTEMPTED A COUP D’ETAT, FAUX IMPEACHMENT, EGREGIOUS SPITEFUL ATTEMPTS TO CRIMINALLY CHARGE HE AND HIS ENTIRE FAMILY WITH
    TAX CRIMES , AND UNCALLED FOR ATTACKS ON HIS PRESIDENCY. THEY ARE FOENDS OF THE GLOBALIST ILLUMINATI…….AND WE THE PEOPLE WILL PRESERVE PROTECT AND DEFEND OUR FREEDOMS OUR LEGALLY ELECTED 45 PRESIDENT AND THIS GREAT CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. ANYWAY POSSIBLE. ANYWAY.

  3. While Madam Duckworth May be a wounded veteran, and as such a heroine there, she is an UNHINGED UNFIT DEMOCRAT who has the MOST RADICAL DEMOCRAT TERRORIST AGENDA
    Of any political entity OTHER THAN HITLER’S NAZIS.
    HER CULT IS ONE OF GODLESS SOULLESS MORALLY CORRUPT AND BANKRUPT INHUMANS.

  4. Question for Tammy and the other swamp creatures.

    Until it became essential for your cheat-by-mail scheme what did a single one of you do to fix the failing USPS? Hmm?

    2nd question:
    What exactly, besides throwing tax dollars at it, do you plan to make it work long-term?

  5. Because absentee voting, by serving military, is completely NOT the same as instituting mass-elections literally three-months out. It is apples and carbeurators.
