Trump's campaign manager didn't vote for him in 2016 according to election documents
According to election records that have been obtained by CBS News, President Donald Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, did not vote for him in 2016.
CBS received the documents from Bexar County, when he used to be a San Antonio resident. He didn't even vote at all in the general election. He blames the issue on a mail-in problem.
While Trump did end up carrying the electoral college and winning the presidency, he's still mad he didn't win the popular vote. Maybe if his own campaign manager voted, he would have got a little bit closer to Hillary's total.
"In 2016, I was in New York working to elect Donald Trump and encountered a series of problems receiving my absentee ballot from Texas and missed the deadline," he told CBS. "Just further proof that vote-by-mail is not the flawless solution Democrats and the media pretend it is."
If you pay attention to what he actually said, he's suggesting that mail-in voting is important for people like him, but he fails to mention the many times President Trump and his administration have tried to stop people from being able to have that same privilege.
Trump was called out for this kind of hypocrisy at a recent press conference:
REPORTER: Mr. President, you were highly critical of mail-in voting — mailing your mail-in ballots for voting a few minutes ago.
TRUMP: I think mail-in voting is horrible.
REPORTER: But you voted by mail in —
TRUMP: It’s corrupt.
REPORTER: — Florida’s election last month, didn’t you?
TRUMP: Sure, I can vote by mail for the —
REPORTER: So how do you reconcile that?
TRUMP: Because I’m allowed to. Well, that’s called "out of state." You know why I voted? Because I happen to be in the White House and I won’t be able to go to Florida to vote. But let me just say —
REPORTER: So what is the difference between mailing within state and mailing outside the state?
TRUMP: Well, there’s a big difference between somebody that’s out of state and does a ballot and everything is sealed, certified, and everything else. You see what you have to do with the certifications. And you get thousands and thousands of people sitting in somebody's living room, signing ballots all over the place.
