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???
I think that is a good point. However, there are some people on FR that suggest that Trump does not need their support in the election. We shall see.
And here's the other thing - President Trump or ANY President has no, as in ZERO authority or power to delay the election. None. Could not do it if he wanted to. That is being lost on some folks.
Tweet from Trump just before the presser started:
Donald J. Trump
Glad I was able to get the very dishonest LameStream Media to finally start talking about the RISKS to our Democracy from dangerous Universal Mail-In-Voting (not Absentee Voting, which I totally support!).
Tell the swing voters to read this tweet.
It sort of explains why Trump sometimes does what Trump does..
Oh, and tell the swing voters that illegal aliens won’t have to leave their house to commit voter fraud.
The govt is mailing them their ballots and they can just mail it right back, postage paid.
And the President has no power to delay the Democrat blue wave..
I say postpone until the virus disappears.
Curves would flatten faster than you could say Corona.
Yes, that sounds about like what I was told, something about the delegates, but I think you explained it better than I was told. So it was the leftists not conservatives that held Cuomo’s feet to the fire. Meanwhile, news has it the Republicans have gotten on Trump’s case about this issue.
How would you tell?
“This isn’t going to go away...no way the Left can shrug it off...”
Except the evenng news says Republicans are now upset with his postponment tweet, so it appears they are not shrugging either.
They'll let you know once they stop laughing.
Im concerned about the swing voter. Maybe hes a JFK Democrat. He voted for Bill Clinton. And later he voted for Donald Trump. I dont think hes going to get the nuance.
I strongly disagree. The people you describe are not wishy washy fence sitters - quite the contrary - they are fiercely independent.
Think of the courage and clarity it took to leave their Democrat past, dissappoint friends and family who are still drinking the kool aid. They arent snowflakes, they are
These people are a lot smarter than you think.
I know a lot of them - union labor - welders, carpenters in PA. They understand nuance. They like Trumps fight. I dont worry about them.
I do worry about some supposedly pro-Trump snowflakes here on FR - I wonder how they would react if Trump were to tweet Give me liberty or give me death!
Would they accuse him of being suicidal or advocating suicide if you dont get your way?
If he had said Walk softly and carry a big stick. would they accuse him of inciting violence?
Gosh can you imagine where Trump would be now if Brilliant Minds like you advised him
Are you crazy do you realize that the Dems will vote for Biden even if they have to wheel him into the debates and the swing voters will question why all the big deal with pushing mailed in ballots when they’re so unreliable
> I know a lot of them - union labor - welders, carpenters in PA. <
Me too. Trust me on this. Not only do I know a lot of them, I once was one of them. I worked for five years in a union steel mill. Then the mills went down and I changed careers.
And heres the thing that bothers me. Most of those guys went for Trump in 2016 for one reason. Trump promised them that hed bring industry back to the region. Those guys didnt like Hillary. But the return of industry was number one on the list.
I even remember one Democrat mayor going on the radio back then and saying he was going to vote for Trump. A Democrat mayor! That was amazing. It was all about those promised jobs.
I dont know what its like elsewhere, but those industrial jobs never came back to my region. And I dont see the Trump enthusiasm now that I saw in 2016. Maybe Im just hang out with the wrong guys.
Anyway, Trump might win here in 2020 because of law-and-order concerns. But the Donald cant afford any missteps. And that question about moving the Election Day was misstep. I think it will hurt him. I hope Im wrong.
Oh, and one more thing. Among the older blue-collars guys I know, Biden is a hero. They didnt like Hillary. But they love Biden. They see him as some sort of blue-collar champion. Thats very wrong, of course.
> Gosh can you imagine where Trump would be now if Brilliant Minds like you advised him <
I enjoy reading the opinions of others here on FR. Sometimes I even learn a thing or two. But Im not a big fan of personal insults or snarky comments. So I think Ill just wish you a good evening.
Ask not for whom the Prez trolls,
He trolls for thee!
Youre not the only person who has great reservations about Trumps endless mouthing off, or his ability to win. Saw many of your opinion on earlier thread. Were not all EverTrumpers here! LOL
Get a grip.
I know Trump was just trolling, but the socialists are planning MAJOR voting fraud, even Obama was boasting about how they are going to steal the election with mail in ballots at the john lewis funeral today
>> delay the vote ???
Hmmm... a good question !!!
