The President of the United States, Donald Trump, proposed the possibility of postponing the presidential election in the North American country this Thursday, arguing that there is a risk that the postal vote will make them “inaccurate and fraudulent”.
“With the universal voting system via email (not the postal vote that is going well), the 2020 elections will be the most fraudulent and inaccurate election in history. It would be a great shame for the United States. A postponement of the election to people can vote correctly and securely? “asked the US President in a message that was published on his personal account on the social network Twitter.
Trump’s proposal has been unprecedented in recent history. In the United States, the date of the presidential election is always set to the first Tuesday of the first full week in November. There have been no precedents for postponing a presidential election in the country in recent decades.
Trump’s message comes after he expressed doubts about the validity of the postal vote and at a time when the country is completely affected by the coronavirus pandemic, which has infected more than 4.4 million people and more than 150,000 deaths on American soil.
