Skip to comments.Trump officially suggests delaying the election

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump 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???
Why even mention this? As a political strategist, Trump is a moron for saying this. Maybe he wants to lose.
Sorry. The last paragraph in my post #134 didnt come out right. I suspect Russian interference. It should have read:
Anyway, I dont think most folks will see this tweet of Trumps as a call for voting reform. Theyll see it as a call for an election day delay. Please see my post #115.
Trump is God and can do or say nothing wrong!!! There, feel better?
You guys have lost ALL objectivity. You’ve drunk so much koolaid your eyes are turning red. It’s sad.
If there is one thing I learned in life it was, don’t take everything you see or hear to extreme. In other words, don’t make a mountain out of a mole hill.
Sometimes Trump tweets what he is thinking.. yeah, don’t do that... but he’s transparent.. he’s what all the rest of politicians are not.. and he says things and does things from thoughts.. and his mind is never quiet....
Fox jumped on it first thing... and I just shake my head and cringe... so quick to report... jump on it and make that mountain out of nothing.
For you who are gonna criticize this... look.. get to know the President. . you got used to clinton’s girlfriend in the oval office... you got used to barry lying to you and taking that upper pose when he talks. you got used to the politicians lying to you.. promising things they have no intentions of doing... so get to know our President.. he has so many good qualities... and let him think outloud...
This seems like a very familiar tactic from Trump to me.
I think they will give him lots of things to respond to.
Let’s just see how this plays out. I see one of two scenarios:
1. he is the impulsive idiot on twitter that the left constantly accuses him of.
2. He’s starting a vernacular and has plotted out the various directions the discussions can go and is prepared to win that battle.
We’ll see which it is.
Come back to this thread in a week and you'll see how hysterical and idiotic many of these posts will look.
It’s a good idea to delay the election until the economy recovers, so he has a better chance of winning it. Perhaps hold it the day before Christmas eve.
The Dems owe Trump another two years just because of the Mueller investigation and all the Russia, Russia, Russia BS.
More like three years. They sabotaged his presidency and and may well be rewarded for it.
This is a troll. Suddenly the reason seen for the delay - COVID19 - won’t be as dangerous. Just as suddenly, mail-in voting won’t be needed.
“Jobless claims RISE to 1.43 million for the second week in a row as new round of coronavirus shutdowns hammer economy”
This would have been the focus this morning.
He’s yanking their chain. So put your indignation back on check.
I think the Democrats would like to steal the election with mail-in ballots (because COVID).
If Trump were to ban mail-in ballots, the Democrats (I think) would try to delay defeat (loss of the House) and the Democrats might suggest delaying the election (because COVID).
President Trump is solving both of these problems by working backwards. He is getting the Democrats to jump up and say that the election cannot possibly be delayed. That’s good for us.
The only remaining step is to make sure that mail-in ballots do not corrupt the election. I confess I don’t know what the plan is for that, but I think there is one. And I think that particular plan will only be unveiled after the Democrats make it very clear that the election cannot be delayed.
I told her I could make a killing marketing them here.
“I agree but the Dems must be going insane just hearing this”
That’s why he is doing it
WRONG. Dates of federal elections are set by Congress, NOT by the Constitution. Only the inaugural date is Constitutionally mandated.
The Lord IS in control. And it looks like his will is that the United States is destroyed. We certainly deserve everything that’s coming.
Good grief. Give it up, armchair lawyer.
