President Trump said late Thursday night that he wants to send law enforcement to bolster security at polling places this election in an attempt to prevent voter fraud.

“We’re going to have sheriffs, and we’re going to have law enforcement. And we’re going to have, hopefully, U.S. attorneys, and we’re going to have everybody and attorney generals,” Mr. Trump said during an interview on Fox News with Sean Hannity.

“They may send them to all Democrat areas, not to the Republican areas as an example,” Mr. Trump added. “Could be the other way too, but I doubt it.”

Vice President Mike Pence defended the administration’s stance on Friday, in an interview on CBS “This Morning,” citing his concerns about ballot harvesting and states sending out ballots to “literally every name on the voter lists, even though many of those lists are outdated.”
