President Trump has suggested the United States delay the fall election until citizens are able safely to vote in-person.
In a series of Tweets, President Trump suggested the United States put off the fall election to avoid mail-in, absentee voting, that he says is prone to sabotage.
The BBC reports:
In a series of tweets, Mr Trump 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".
Mr Trump also said postal voting was "already proving to be a catastrophic disaster" in areas where it was being tried out.
In June, New York allowed voters to vote by post in the Democratic primary poll for the party's presidential candidate. But there have been long delays in counting the ballots and the results are still unknown.
US media report that there are also concerns that many ballots will not be counted because they were not filled in correctly or do not have postmarks on them that show they were sent before voting officially ended.
Of course, the left-wing media is accusing Trump both of “making false claims about mail-in voting” and of “manipulating the postal service to help get Trump reelected.”
With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 30, 2020
“The [Democrats] talk of foreign influence in voting, but they know that Mail-In Voting is an easy way for foreign countries to enter the race.”
