NBC: President Trump on Thursday suggested delaying November’s presidential election, an unprecedented move as polls show him trailing his likely opponent Joe Biden.
“We can’t prove that Coronavirus was unleashed in the US in order to facilitate a takeover of the United States. However, we accept it as a possibility and even a likelihood.
We do know that Donald Trump has issued a presidential order cancelling the election based on a national emergency, COVID 19 and Chinese interference in the election tied to “treason” by Joe Biden and key American political figures whose names are already on arrest warrants.
Trump has already built an unconstitutional police force based on the model of the Pinkertons or the American Legionaires who tried to arrest Franklin Roosevelt as part of the ‘Business Plot’ in 1933 until stopped by Marine General Smedley Butler.
With Trump now hopelessly behind in the polls, experts around the country are getting wind of what VT’s inside sources in Washington have confirmed, that Trump has no intention of leaving the White House.”
With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???

Notwithstanding his suggestion, the dates of federal elections are set by Congress, and the Constitution makes no provisions for a delay to the Jan. 20 inauguration.
Any such move would require a change of federal law, meaning it would need to go through Democrats in the House of Representatives in addition to the Republican-controlled Senate.

Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” the president tweeted, making his latest unsubstantiated allegation that increased mail-in voting will result in fraud.
TRUMP’S GOAL: DELAY the ELECTION
It has been very obvious for some time that Trump was going to pull this stunt. He is out of control. Daily he is attempting to undermine the validity of mail-in voting & now he has flagged delaying the election. He is losing & he knows it.

There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud through mail-in voting, even in states with all-mail votes.
Every GOP official should be put on the record on this today.
Simple yes or no answer.
“Should we delay the election?”
Watch how many of them say, “What is Twitter?” “Donald Who?” “I haven’t seen the tweet.” “Ya ne govoryu po angliyski.” “I’m late for lunch.”

The tweet comes amid widespread polling suggesting the president trails Democrat Joe Biden by double digits with less than 100 days until the vote. The latest Wall Street Journal / NBC News poll had Biden leading Trump by 11 points, and more recent NBC News / Marist polls have put Biden ahead in key battleground states like Arizona and North Carolina.
I’m enjoying 2020, how about you?
