We can’t say we weren’t warned.

Trump’s threat to withhold federal funds from Michigan and Nevada is a variation of the squeeze he put on Ukraine and its president last year: “Do this thing that will help me personally and politically, and you can have your money.” Rather than ginning up a bogus scandal against Joe Biden, though, Trump wants to punish states for making it easier to vote-by-mail during the pandemic (see, when more people vote, Republicans tend to lose).

His last adventure got him impeached. Apparently, he didn’t learn his lesson.
