Can Trump Legally Postpone the 2020 Election?

According to the U.S. Constitution, only Congress can determine or change the date of federal elections.

The short answer - absolutely not. Because while some experts argue that the election can be delayed, albeit with with congressional approval, the inauguration cannot.

Dr Smith said the US Constitution only gives that power to Congress, with both Democrats and Republicans firmly committed to the 3 November date.

Barr also testified that to his knowledge, a sitting president can not contest the results of an election if the vote tallies are clear.

So, the governor said, postponing the election "would be foolish". "Americans have voted in federal elections during the Civil War, the 1918 pandemic, and other calamities".

The White House referred questions about the tweet to Trump's re-election campaign.

De Blasio called Trump's suggestion "an assault on our democracy" that "cannot stand", saying that the election needed to proceed November 3 as planned.

Some Ontario parents, teachers balk at ‘underfunded’ back-to-school plan
Sarlo said she anticipates a survey to be distributed to parents as well as a request to register students. Ontario says all four school boards in Ottawa will offer an adapted model for secondary school students.


Trump projected bravado at his news conference, saying the only polls showing him losing were "fake", compared to his campaign's internal polls, which were "real".

U.S. presidential elections are schedule to be held on November 3. But that won't happen while Congress has a Democratic-led House and a Republican-led Senate which still needs at least some Democrats on board for legislation to advance.

Trump sent out the tweet on Thursday morning.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida said to CNN: "I wish he hadn't said that, but it's not going to change: We are going to have an election in November and people should have confidence in it". Neither Trump nor Barr have explained how such a plot could successfully pass the numerous safeguards election officials have in place, like barcodes and signature verification, instead they have said as Trump did Thursday, that the threat was "obvious".

DONALD TRUMP: I just feel- I don't want to delay. Without any major races on the ballot, most candidates are expecting lower turnout with the possible exception of Cranston, which has both a Democratic and Republican mayoral primary.

Mr Trump, who often uses social media to announce major decisions and for floating his ideas, once again went to Twitter to test his latest idea.

"[He's] preparing to declare the result fraudulent, probably because he thinks he's going to lose given what the polling numbers look like". "There actually has not been one poll in the entire course of the run-up to 2020 and throughout 2020 in which Joe Biden has been trailing Donald Trump". About half of 50 USA states allow registered voters to vote by post on request but a growing number of states have acknowledged considering "all-mail" votes in November.

In Wisconsin, voters can mail in absentee ballots or cast them in person ahead of the election.

A shift to mail voting is increasing the chances that Americans will not know the victor of November's presidential race on election night.

"All the supervisors of elections have been planning for this for a long time".

"There's some people that say you should just mass-mail ballots to every address regardless of whether they request it or anything", DeSantis said. "We have done it right 100% of the time for 100 years - this year will be no different". "We'll find a way to do that again this November 3".

U.S. federal elections can be postponed.
