Trump Floats Delaying 2020 Election
Hours after suggesting a possible delay in this year's presidential election, President Donald Trump on Thursday said he did not want to postpone the vote but remained concerned that millions of mail-in ballots would cause problems.
Speaking at the White House, Trump told reporters he doesn't want the election delayed but he also doesn't want one, in his words, that "doesn't mean anything."
"I don't wanna see that take place in a week after November 3, or a month or, frankly, with litigation and everything else that can happen, years."
Trump cited recent media reports about potential problems with mail-in ballots arriving late.
The president does not have the authority to change the election date, that power resides with the Congress.
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill from both parties rejected the notion of moving this year's election.
