As many of his critics express concern that he will attempt to invalidate or otherwise evade an electoral loss in November, Donald Trump has given them more fuel for speculation.
In a tweet on Thursday, he predicted that “2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history” based on increased use of mail-in voting.
“It will be a great embarrassment to the USA,” he claimed, attempting to differentiate between mail-in and absentee voting.
The latter, an option Trump himself uses “is good,” he alleged.
“Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” he concluded.
Immediately after the tweet, members of both parties in Congress, who have the constitutional authority to set the date of elections, dismissed the proposal.
