Trump floats idea of delaying November elections

Posted: Updated:

President Trump raised the idea of delaying the November presidential election in a tweet Thursday morning. 

The president has been making the argument - without evidence - that mail-in voting is fraudulent. He says this year's elections are likely to be "inaccurate and fraudulent" and asks if the election should be postponed "until people can properly, securely and safely vote."

Earlier this week, U.S. Attorney General William Barr told Congress he has no reason to believe the 2020 presidential election will be rigged. 

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.
