Igor KOZLOV, “the FACTS”
Thursday, July 30, U.S. President Donald trump made a proposal to postpone scheduled for November 3 presidential election. About this he wrote in Twitter. “Voting in 2020 will be the most INACCURATE and FRAUDULENT in history. It will be a disgrace for US”, — said trump.
The reason is that the pandemic COVID-19 Democrats offered to allow the American voters to massively vote by mail, and use other means of expression. Trump is adamantly against it. He believes in fraud, hacker break-ins, the distortion of the voting results.
According to the head of the state, voters should be given the opportunity to vote “correctly, reliably and safely”, and for this it is necessary to consider the postponement of the election date.
Offer trump immediately provoked sharp criticism in the American media. So, the New York Daily News writes: “the date of any election at the Federal level is set by Congress, not the Executive. In addition, the Constitution does not permit you to transfer the day of the inauguration of the President on any other date. The ceremony will be held only on January 20, 2021.”
Experts have repeatedly stated that trump’s concerns regarding possible fraud in case of voting by mail are unnecessary. In General in modern U.S. history, any fraud with the ballots was not. But voting by mail is as secure as traditional voting at the polling station.
Interestingly, back in April, trump himself said that he does not even admit the thought of a possible postponement of the presidential election. “Why would I want this? November 3 — a good day. No, I’m looking forward to it!” — said the American President.
Apparently, trump is seriously concerned about its significant backlog from the former Vice-President Joe Biden, as evidenced by the results of ratings of popularity.
