US President Donald Trump announced Thursday for the first time that the presidential elections scheduled for the end of this year could be postponed due to what he said were risks related to the Corona pandemic crisis.
Trump added on Twitter that he prefers to postpone the elections so that people can vote properly, securely and safely? Because voting by mail will make the 2020 elections the least accurate and most fraudulent in history, and will be a great embarrassment to the United States, he says.
Under the US Constitution, only Congress can change the election date set for November 3, and with Democrats dominating the House of Representatives, it is unlikely that this will happen, as many US states want to vote by mail in order to limit the spread of the epidemic as much as possible.
It is worth noting that the average national opinion polls, according to the “Real Clear Politics” site, showed the advance of the candidate for the Democratic Party, “Joe Biden,” 6 weeks ago, against President Donald Trump by eight to 10 percentage points.
