Trump refuses to say he won't seek to delay 2020 election

Donald Trump calls for delay to 2020 US presidential election

In the states with all-mail voting, Hawaii and Utah reported zero, OR reported two, Colorado reported only five and Washington six. A handful of states also send ballots to all registered voters, but no states send ballots out to people who are not registered to vote.

Yesterday's tweet came on the heels of a devastating report showing that the United States economy shrank almost 10pc from April through June, the largest quarterly decline since the government began publishing such data 70 years ago.

De Blasio called Trump's suggestion "an assault on our democracy" that "cannot stand", saying that the election needed to proceed November 3 as planned. He has called remote voting options the "biggest risk" to his reelection. "But I don't want to see a crooked election", he said.

Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger blamed the mix-up on third-party groups. He added that the state of NY was "sending every registered voter a ballot whether they asked for one or not". Instead, voters will have to request an absentee ballot if they want to vote at home.

On Thursday, Mr Trump shared a discredited theory that increased postal voting due to the COVID-19 pandemic could lead to widespread voter fraud.

Trump also repeated a fear that he and Attorney General William Barr have raised, about foreign countries counterfeiting ballots.

That was the suggestion from Donald Trump this afternoon.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of IL retweeted the President, but added the comment: "Reminder: Election dates are set by Congress".

Nonpartisan U.S. election analyst Kyle Kondik of the University of Virginia said the tweet seemed to follow Trump's typical approach of trying to distract voters from bad news.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday raised the possibility of delaying the nation's November 3 presidential election, though the Constitution bestows that power on Congress, not the president.

"So, while I understand and share the trauma of the 2016 election and especially that unforgettable election night, the reality is the fundamentals of this race are quite different and wining will be far more hard for Donald Trump this time around", he said. The practice has been shown to be safe from both disease and fraud, according to research.

He further said that both sides should properly handle differences to bring bilateral relations back to normal track. He said China was committed to peaceful development and did not present a "strategic threat" to India.

"If you actually go under the hood and look at the fundamentals, this election is actually very different than 2016", he said.

"Universal mail-in voting invites chaos and severe delays in results", Gidley stated.

"Glad I was able to get the very dishonest LameStream Media to finally start talking about the RISKS to our Democracy from risky Universal Mail-In-Voting (not Absentee Voting, which I totally support!)", the president wrote.

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".

"Just bringing it up is breathtaking in and of itself", Evers said.

So, I want to see- I want an election and a result, much- much more than you.

Some states already have all-mail elections without any issues, while all but a handful of states have expanded their rules about voting by mail to allow anyone to cast a mail ballot amid the pandemic.

President Donald Trump has walked back his suggestion that Election Day should be postponed amid criticism - saying his idea wasn't about undermining the foundation of American democracy but ensuring results were ready in a timely fashion.

In its own investigation, conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation pointed to other problems, all of them associated with the lack of supervision by election officials, which it alleged made it "easier to steal, forge, or alter" ballots, "as well as to intimidate voters". "Why would I do that?" "We'll find a way to do that again this November 3rd".

So could he delay this November's election?
