Donald Trump Calls to Delay 2020 Presidential Election

Tests conduced on Broward County voting machines

Trump tweeted Thursday: "With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history". Mr Trump has in the past said there was a risk of "thousands and thousands of people sitting in somebody's living room, signing ballots all over the place".

It wasn't immediately clear how seriously official Washington or state leaders might treat Trump's idea about moving the date of the election or whether the notion might simply lapse, as other Trump suggestions sometimes do. Well, we just got word on GDP for the second quarter, and it reached historic proportions, plunging more than 32%. He is also trailing in averages of polls in the states of Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, the report added.

There is no evidence to support Trump's claims of voting fraud on a massive scale, and adjusting the date of the election would be hard, if not impossible.

Does mail-in voting increase fraud?

Donald Trump has repeatedly suggested that the November election might be tainted by fraud if mail-in balloting is used widely as part of moves to adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Twitter has previously deleted tweets by Mr Trump over the legitimacy of postal voting. His campaign and the Republican Party have sued to combat the practice. Look ... I have to see. "No, I'm not going to just say "yes".

Ever since the novel coronavirus pandemic has reached the U.S., many have pushed for the expanded use of postal ballots as opposed to in-person voting to ensure social distancing, a critical measure adopted around the world to halt the outbreak.

Major League Baseball coronavirus outbreak: Another Marlins player tests positive; Phillies tests still negative
A majority of Nationals players voted against playing the Marlins earlier Tuesday, according to ESPN and multiple reports. Another member of the Marlins has tested positive for coronavirus , but that's better than the results earlier this week.

Senior presidential adviser Jared Kushner told Time magazine in May that he wasn't certain whether the election would be held as scheduled in November.

Democrats have pushed to includes billions of dollars in the next coronavirus relief bill to fund election security and accessibility improvements for this year's vote, but Trump and Republicans have so far resisted those efforts.

In April, his presumed Democratic rival Joe Biden claimed the incumbent would "try to kick back the election somehow".

Do you think the outcome would change should the election be delayed? "Why would I do that?" November 3rd. It's a good number. "No, let him know I'm not thinking about it at all, not at all". With Democrats ruling the lower House, that seems highly unlikely to happen.

But historically, voting by mail has not led to massive voter fraud.

During the hearing, Barr was asked about comments he made last month over foreign interference in the election through phony ballots.
