Trump: Monkeypox Eyed as Excuse for Mail-in Voting

'So now they have a new one and let's see what happens... '

(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) In an appearance on the One America News Network, former President Donald Trump suggested that the alleged “monkeypox” outbreak would likely be used as an excuse for another round of mail-in ballot fraud.

“Here we go again, here we go again, back to mail-in ballots, the fake mail-in ballots,” Trump told OAN.

After President Biden warned in remarks in South Korea Sunday that monkeypox, a virus that seems primarily to affect sexually active gay men, “is something that everybody should be concerned about.”

“We’re working on it hard to figure out what we do and what vaccine, if any, may be available for it,” Biden said.

In his comments, Trump pointed out that Biden was eager to use a new outbreak to provide cover for his failed policies since he became president.

“What a disgrace, what this country has lived through, and what’s happened to this country in a year and a half is hard to believe,” Trump told OAN.

“So now they have a new one and let’s see what happens, they say it’s not nearly as contagious, let’s see what happens.”

According to the CDC, monkeypox is a “zoonotic infection endemic to several Central and West African countries.”

The United Kingdom Health Security Agency has warned that at least one strain of the infection involves “people who self-identify as gay, bisexual, or men who have sex with men.”

Dr. Susan Hopkins, chief medical adviser at the U.K. Health Security Agency, issued a specific warning to gay men.

“We are particularly urging men who are gay and bisexual to be aware of any unusual rashes or lesions and to contact a sexual health service without delay,” Hopkins said in a statement, according to the New York Intelligencer.
