In this tweet the president of the USA said

For our Country to be sending 80 million UNSOLICITED BALLOTS is very unfair and a roadmap to disaster. Even recent small and easier to control elections which did this are a catastrophic disaster. Fraudulent & missing Ballots like never seen before. 20% and 30% off. STOP!

Are there "80 million UNSOLICITED BALLOTS" being sent? Or, is this a "false news" hoax?

Ought I to ask a separate question to ask about the claim that "Fraudulent & missing Ballots like never seen before. 20% and 30%", or can that also be covered in this question?

    What is an "unsolicited ballot"? A scrap of paper with a name and X on it? Or multiple photocopies of a genuine ballot paper? – Weather Vane Aug 25 at 18:58

    @DanielRHicks presidential tweets are inherently notable, regardless of credibility. – Ben Barden Aug 25 at 19:11

    Please don't be rude, but post a clear question. Are you imagining what POTUS is saying, or do you understand? Since you have posted the question, what you imagine is very relevant. – Weather Vane Aug 25 at 19:16

    @WeatherVane it is not incumbent upon the question asker to define what the original claimant means. We have a clear notable claim to work with, clearly identified. They've posed a challenge/question to that claim. Their role here is done. – Ben Barden Aug 25 at 19:21

    "For our Country to be sending 80 million UNSOLICITED BALLOTS is very unfair". He's speaking hypothetically, knowing how his fans will assume it's fact, but he did not make the claim. – Jerome Viveiros Aug 27 at 13:55
