Trump Wants To Delay The Elections
President Donald Trump floated the idea that the elections scheduled for November should be delayed. He said that it should be postponed until people can safely come out and vote. The proposal, which is sure to become controversial, is prompted by the fact that the coronavirus pandemic is still spreading and infecting a lot of people. He expressed his idea through a tweet, “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history,” he tweeted. “It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the election until people can properly, securely, and safely vote???”

The President of the United States does not have control when the elections are held, but Congress can make the changes. Congress can delay the election, which is scheduled for November with approval from both houses of Congress, although that has never happened before. The President also criticized mail-in voting, which is the alternative being pushed by the Democrats. Trump said mail-in voting is the surest way to let foreign powers get involved in the election. It will be easier to tamper with the ballets during mail-in voting.
There will be a definite push-back against the proposal to delay the election. On a recent appearance on The Daily Show, Biden already mentioned that President Trump might delay the elections. During a recent speech, he also claimed that the President’s attack on mail-in voting is an attempt to steal the election results, although he did not make it clear how that would be the case.
The mainstream media is claiming that Trump is trailing behind Biden in the polls, very much like how he trailed after Hillary in 2016. But even if everyone said that Hillary was a sure winner, Trump still won decisively, although Hillary did win the popular vote. Now the Democrats are going to attempt anything just to get themselves into power.
The way that some of the more prominent Democrats have been pushing for mail-in voting is rather suspicious. There is fear now that they would try to steal the elections through tampered ballots or maybe allowing those who are unqualified to vote. It was recently revealed that a cat that has been dead for several years is eligible to vote by mail. That’s just one incident of discrepancy that was discovered. There could be countless other cases that have not been detected.
