Trump proposes delaying November election

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is for the first time floating a "delay" to November's presidential election and he's making allegations that increased mail-in voting will result in fraud.

The dates of federal elections are set by Congress and the Constitution makes no provisions for a delay to the January 20, 2021 presidential inauguration.

On Thursday morning, Trump tweeted: "With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history." There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud through mail-in voting, even in states with all-mail votes.
