Meadows: Trump 'Just Stating The Facts' of Mail-In Vote 'Scam'

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Sunday defended President Donald Trump’s depiction of mail-in ballots as a “scam” — saying the president is just “stating the facts.”

In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Meadows denied Trump’s repeated accusations about ballot fraud, and his Wednesday comment of a mail-in ballot “scam” — were undermining confidence in the Nov. 3 election.

“I don't know that he's publicly undermining confidence as much as he's stating the facts,” Meadows declared.

“We've got states that … actually are doing things that you would qualify as a scam when you start to look at allowing mail-in ballots to come in seven, nine days after Nov. 3, changing the laws through judges that actually are not legislators,” he argued.

“I think that that's a real problem. And so you can call it what you will, but what you can call it is unusual and unique. And we need to make sure that what we do is protect the ballot process to make sure that we're not creating a situation that is ripe with fraud. 

“And he's right to highlight it. The very fact that we're talking about it this morning is a good thing that hopefully all states will look at making sure that they make sure that ballot is sacred.”

Meadows also criticized the FDA aim to create new guidance on COVID-19 vaccines.

“My question is, why would that new guidance come out after we've already spent 30 billion dollars in doing that?” he asked. “And my challenge to the FDA is just make sure it's based on science and real numbers.”

“Why would you think that we would need new guidance after we've developed vaccines and drugs for decades and then all of a sudden we're going to change something in the last two weeks? The question is why?  I mean, why would we do that?”
