Not gonna happen. States run presidential elections and they even did that in the middle of a Civil War (the 1864 election). Trump is gonna be stopped, and he can do nothing about it.

Who cares? It's not like it's gonna get delayed anyway. Like Trump or not, stop worrying about this kind of BS. America will decide on Election Day, so if you hate Trump than get out and vote.

So Trump is demanding a thing that the Constitution does not permit based on an entirely baseless concern.

Someone ask him if he's fine with President Pelosi, since that's where this path will lead.

Also I take it it's totally a coincidence that he's screaming about delaying the election right after it's been announced that his STRONGEST ECONOMY is now in the worst contraction in decades.

Trump routinely does a lot of illegal things, it probably isn't wise to assume that he wouldn't be able to do this illegal thing because it would be illegal.

He keeps saying the reason is that postal vote fraud is a big problem. Is it? On the basis of what evidence?

I hate to be that guy, but as an amateur politico, this thread title is extremely inaccurate. He claimed/proposed it, but he can't actually do anything. Congress sets the times for these elections, for one, and for two, the 20th Amendment requires the terms end in January, and if the Presidential Term expires he just makes Nancy Pelosi acting President anyway. In short, no, this isn't possible. The senate GOP will just act like they didn't see it and it'll fade from the headlines in favor of coronavirus information within a 24-48 hours.

Well, mail in votes have been used by like >1/2 the states for years now and there hasn't been any issue, so no, it's not a legitimate concern.

Mail-in voting happens every election, they're called Absentee ballots. And someone in Utah or Oregon correct me if I'm wrong, but it's completely safe and secure.
