President Trump has suggested delaying November’s election to ensure a safe and secure voting process.

On Twitter, the president stated “with universal mail-in voting, not absentee voting, 2020 will be the most inaccurate and fraudulent election in history.” He added “it will be a great embarrassment to the nation” and recommended delaying the election “until people can properly, securely and safely vote.”

According to experts, Congress ultimately has the power to delay the election.

Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said the 2020 presidential election will happen in November.

While speaking with journalists on the phone, he claimed the November election is set in stone and won’t change. He added he believes a crisis could occur if it is postponed.
