Trump Tosses Out the Idea of a Delay to the 2020 Presidential Election

President Donald Trump floated a suggestion: “Delay the Election,” something Democrats have feared since the beginning of the pandemic.

In a Thursday morning tweet, the president once again blasted “universal mail-in voting” and claimed if people vote that way then the 2020 presidential election will be “the most INACCURATE [and] FRAUDULENT Election in history.”

“It will be a great embarrassment to the USA,” he added, before adding the controversial question.

He asked, “Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” This is something that Trump does not have the power to do by himself, however, and there is no evidence to support mail-in voting contributing to widespread voter fraud. Despite the fear from Democrats, this is the first time the president has explicitly floated the idea.

See the tweet below:

On Thursday morning, the president also tweeted a claim that mail-in voting is “already proving to be a catastrophic disaster.”

“The Dems talk of foreign influence in voting, but they know that Mail-In Voting is an easy way for foreign countries to enter the race. Even beyond that, there’s no accurate count!” he added.

Trump’s tweet comes as there are 95 days until the 2020 presidential election, where he will face off with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The election-year has been changed in many ways as the U.S. had been combatting the coronavirus pandemic.

  1. Where are the howls of outrage from the right over the idea of a president, ANY president, spouting the idea that he would arbitrarily change the date of our election?

    Can you imagine the noise that would be raised if, say, a President Obama made this kind of ridiculous idea? OMG, we would be deafened by the clamouring!

    What a bunch of cow-towing pussies.

  2. Phoenix: King Donald The Loser and his American Fascist Party are ALREADY doing whatever that they can to burn this country down.

    My question is when will Cult-45 realize that THEY will go down at the same time everyone else does.

  3. Setting that stage for refusal to accept election results.. if he is elected then it will be all on the up and up.

    But if he isn’t elected? I guarantee he is going to do everything he can to ensure this country burns itself to the ground.

  4. 100 million mail-in ballots will be a disaster, but they will get counted in the end. No disaster will be as awful as more Trump.
