Yet, Trump may have jumped the gun on the threat to withhold the battleground state's funding, however, as only applications for ballots are being sent to voters - not the ballots themselves, as he tweeted. Voters simply need to fill out their ballot, sign the oath on the envelope and place it back in the mail.
On Wednesday morning, Trump tweeted that he could "hold up" funds to MI, which sent 7.7 million absentee ballot request forms to residents, and to Nevada for promoting mail-in voting, which he said could result in fraud.
Michigan's secretary of state, Jocelyn Benson, tweeted back at the president stating that his allegations are false.
On Monday, before Trump's Twitter threat, the Republican National Committee sought to clarify its position on vote by mail, arguing that the party opposes mailing ballots to every voter, as Nevada has done, but does not oppose mailing applications, as MI did. The threats came one day after a federal judge in Texas ruled that state's restrictions on voting by mail unconstitutional. Overall, almost 290,000 people have recovered from the virus in the country.
Still, the governor's office has said that Whitmer will not stop Trump's visit to the factory. The application must be completed and returned to the clerk's office in order to receive a ballot.
Wisconsin officials said at least 71 cases of COVID-19 are associated with people who went to the polls in person in that state's controversial April 7 election, where thousands of voters had to wait in line to cast ballots after Republicans in the state Legislature refused to support efforts to expand mail-in voting. Other states are also considering adopting mail-in balloting regimes before the election.

Mr Engel said in a statement reported first by the Washington Post: "It is troubling that Secretary Pompeo wanted Mr Linick pushed out before this work could be completed".
Mail-in voting makes it arguably too easy to vote, making the key act by citizens in the democratic process less solemn and serious, and is particularly susceptible to fraud, some experts say.
A study from Pew Charitable Trusts found that Colorado, which has one of the most robust vote by mail programs in the nation, is estimated to have saved millions of taxpayer dollars at the state and local levels and provides a secure, more efficient voting experience.
Christian Adams, president of the Indianapolis-based Public Interest Legal Foundation and a former U.S. Department of Justice civil rights attorney, is wary of mass voting-by-mail.
In 2017, Trump, first lady Melania Trump and their daughter, Ivanka Trump, all cast absentee votes during New York's mayoral race. "Mail ballots are a very unsafe thing for this country because they are cheaters". "It depends. I mean, you know, in certain areas, I would".
But after he made those comments, reporters asked why should he get to use mail-in voting while others do not?
Those on the Left continue to reflexively reject the notion that voter fraud even exists.
"Notaries would snatch ballots from mailboxes and end up voting the ballots for the voters".
