Trump suggests postponement of 2020 election

279

US President Donald Trump has called for November’s presidential election to be postponed, citing possible fraud and inaccurate results due to mail-in voting.

Some US states are opting for mail-in voting this year to make postal voting easier due to public health concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

But Trump, who has long kicked against the mail-in voting system, said it would be susceptible to fraud. He, however, did not back his claims with evidence.

In a series of tweets, the president said “universal mail-in voting” would make November’s vote the “most inaccurate and fraudulent election in history” and a “great embarrassment to the USA”.

“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,” he said.

Trump also said postal voting was “already proving to be a catastrophic disaster” in areas where it was being tried out.

He, therefore, suggested a delay until people can “properly, securely and safely” vote.

Earlier this month, six US states – California, Utah, Hawaii, Colorado, Oregon and Washington – were planning to hold “all-mail” ballot elections this year.

These states will automatically send postal ballots to all registered voters, which then have to be sent back or dropped off on election day.
