Trump calls for delay to 2020 US presidential election

Posted In: News Date:Jul 30th, 2020

U.S. President Donald Trump has called for the 2020 US presidential election to be delayed despite its November date being enshrined in the US Constitution.

Mr Trump, without evidence, repeated his claims of mail-in voter fraud and raised the question of a delay, writing: "delay the election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???"

In a series of tweets, Mr Trump said the election would be "inaccurate and fraudulent" if mail-in voting was used.
