Joe Biden warns that Trump will try to delay the November election


Former Vice-President Joe Biden said he is worried that Donald Trump would seek to postpone the November presidential election during an online fundraiser. 

"Mark my words, I think he is going to try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can’t be held," the presumptive Democratic candidate, Biden said on Thursday evening.

No President has the right under the law to delay the presidential race. Congress needs to act to alter the date.

Trump hasn't revealed plans to delay the November 3 referendum, but it is a issue that has been raised by people in both parties. The president has consistently shown a lack of understanding about the limits of executive power, especially when it comes to protecting one's own self.

The coronavirus outbreak also posed questions about how to perform in-person voting in a secure manner. In addition, several are calling for the extension of voting by mail.

Trump used coronavirus press conferences to make misleading statements about voting by fax, calling it "corrupt" and "dangerous." Earlier this month, Trump also encouraged Republicans to fight to improve voting by mail.

“Republicans should fight very hard when it comes to state wide mail-in voting,” Trump posted on twitter.

“Democrats are clamoring for it. Tremendous potential for voter fraud, and for whatever reason, doesn’t work out well for Republicans.”

Biden also referred to the Washington Post report at the fundraiser, which exposed Trump's inability to funding the US postal service and attempts to force changes to its economic structure that could damage votes by mail.

The coronavirus outbreak has transformed the 2020 campaign. The candidates are working from home, and reporters are now reporting on Covid-19 at a time in the process when the election appears to dominate media coverage.
