Donald Trump has decided to float around a bit with the US Presidential elections of 2020. While there is little evidence that would support his statements, he has long been a vocal protestor of mail-in voting which he considers to be a hub for frauds. On the other hand, most of the states are planning on making elections easier, something that is a necessity in these dangerous times.
As far as the rule book goes, Mr. Trump doesn’t really have any authority in postponing the election. Every decision for that would have to go through the Congress, and to postpone it- two-thirds majority. And Trump also doesn’t have the power to control two-thirds of the Congress.
The POTUS brought out a series of tweets wherein he mentioned that ‘universal mail-in voting’ would be absolutely fraudulent and lead to the most inaccurate elections ever. “The [Democrats] talk of foreign influence in voting, but they know that Mail-In Voting is an easy way for foreign countries to enter the race,” he said. In his own way, he was referring to foreign interference in the Presidential elections.
He also believes that it has been a huge disaster in places it has been tried out.
