As Trump continued to rant about mail-in voting, Ingraham interrupted, "Right, but what are you going to do about it?"

Clips of Trump's Fox News Town Hall have made the rounds on X, formerly known as Twitter, where several users criticized the former president for his hardened stance on mail-in votes, claiming he has a "one-note campaign."

One user shared Ingraham's back and forth with Trump in a post that reads, "Trump continues to emphatically tell GOP voters to reject mail-in voting... There will be mail-in voting for the 2024 election... All Trump is accomplishing is sabotaging down-ballot Republicans, and no one in the party has the guts to call him out."

Another X user commented, "Trump is a LIAR and everyone knows it. He'll disregard the results no matter what happens. Trump could win every state in the country and he'd STILL say that elections are rigged cuz he could've won even bigger."

A third person wrote, "I'm not saying he’s doing it on purpose, but if I wanted to sabotage Republican down-ballot performance, I wouldn’t do anything different."
