One of the biggest critiques that Donald Trump has had of this year's presidential election is the amount of people who will be voting by mail-in-ballots.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, more people than usual (a reported 87 million requests for mail-in ballots have been made) are expected to send in their votes this year via the postal service but Trump doesn't like this.

Throughout the year, the president has peddled misinformation about mail-in ballots leading to voter fraud but has not been able to present any substantial evidence.

On Monday, Trump was censored by Twitter after posting a tweet about the subject which the website flagged as 'disputed' and 'misleading.'

Despite his clear dislike of voting by mail, it is apparently fine for his daughter and son-in-law to cast their votes for him by mail. Hours before Trump went on his aforementioned rant about mail-in ballots he posed for a photo on Air Force One with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner complete with their own mail-in ballots.

The timing of Ivanka's tweet and her father's complaints saw her criticised with many accusing her and the president of 'hypocrisy.'

President Trump did cast his vote in person on Saturday at the Palm Beach County main library in West Palm Beach, Florida joining the millions of people who have already cast their ballots as early voting number have already exceeded 2016.
