Donald Trump calls for delay to 2020 U.S. presidential election

Donald Trump calls for delay to 2020 US presidential election

Brindisi said Trump's claim that "2020 will be the most inaccurate and fraudulent election in history" is unsubstantiated.

"It will be a great embarrassment to the U.S.", he wrote. "Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???" In order to move the date, Congress would need to act. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in a hearing before the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee, and Senator Tim Kaine asked him about the possibility.

The Republican Party of Florida has sent out mailers imploring voters to request an "absentee ballot", with part of the copy including recent tweets by Trump, such as a June 28 tweet that said, "absentee ballots are fine".

There appears to be next-to-no appetite in the Capitol for a change to the November 3 election.

The suggestion represented Mr Trump's latest, and most dramatic, attempt to undermine public faith in United States elections, which have grown more regular as polls have shown his political fortunes declining. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, quickly tweeted that fact following Trump's tweet, citing the Constitution, and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield, said the election would proceed as scheduled. There's no substantial evidence that mail-in voting will lead to fraud, and the "distinction" between "mail-in voting" and "absentee voting" is nonexistent.

After facing blowback from Republicans for even floating the notion, Trump appeared to retreat on Twitter Thursday afternoon, suggesting he was merely trying to highlight problems with mail-in balloting. "The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January".

"No, Mr. President. No. All members of Congress - and the administration- should speak out".

"Congressman Young stands behind the powers granted by the Constitution to the states, allowing them to choose the way their elections are held".

While Congress does have the power to change the date of Election Day, most Republicans in Washington roundly rejected that idea on Thursday.

As NewNowNext has reported at length, Trump will most likely face off against Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden in November. No", Trump responded. "But I don't want to see a crooked election. "Why don't you work on that?" And while some states count the ballots as they come in, others - notably the crucial battlegrounds of MI and Pennsylvania - have laws that forbid processing mail ballots until election day, guaranteeing the count will extend well past that night.

President Donald Trump on Thursday floated the idea of delaying the 2020 presidential election while continuing to criticize mail-in voting.

"Even in 2016, an election where he narrowly lost the popular vote but became president because he narrowly won the electoral college, even in that election he had the absurd claim that millions of people voted illegally".

"Trump suggesting delaying the election (he can't do this w/o congressional approval) seems to be one of his more obvious attempts to change the subject given this morning's wretched GDP numbers", Kondik wrote on Twitter.

"Mark my words - I think he is going to try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can't be held", Biden said at a virtual fundraiser on April 24.

The president's remark coincides with several stories pointing to the inaccuracies and risks associated with universal mail-in voting. In the proceeding 175 years, the president has been chosen in elections taking place between November 2 and November 8, every four years.

In an interview with Fox News, he said: "No, I'm not going to just say 'yes.' I'm not going to say 'no, ' and I didn't last time, either". "The 2020 election will be the most secure election in modern history". In addition, an increasing number of American states are making it easier for people to vote by mail during the coronavirus outbreak.
