Donald Trump at a press conference after his tweet. The head scratching begins.

"Election Day was fixed by a federal law passed in 1845, and the Constitution itself in the 20th Amendment specifies that the newly elected Congress meet at noon on January 3, 2021, and that the terms of the president and vice president end at noon on January 20, 2021". At the same time, many Republican leaders are struggling under the weight of health, economic and social crises that the Trump administration has failed to contain. The board of elections said this week it had finally finished counting absentee ballots, and Ms. Maloney holds a lead of about 3,700 votes.

He makes reference to how in the midst of the Great Depression in 1932 and during World War II in 1944 election day still took place.

US intelligence agencies determined that Russian operatives seeking to boost Trump's campaign hacked into the Democratic National Committee's servers and later shared damaging messages with WikiLeaks while running a covert social media campaign aimed at sowing discord among American voters.

"I think we've had elections every November since about 1788, and I expect that will be the case again this year", he told CNN.

In 2020, Trump has aggressively turned his attention to the electoral process that will determine his political fate. Increasingly, Americans believe that the mail-in voting will encourage many more to vote due to their fears of Covid-19 and its aftermath. There was little conservative opposition to Trump's broader push to raise questions about the legitimacy of the 3 November election, including his suggestion later on Thursday that a delayed result because of mail-in ballots would be a sign of fraud. I want to have the election. Cobb, a Democrat from Canton, said New Yorkers should be able to safely vote by mail.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has predicted that President Donald Trump will "tear" Joe Biden to "pieces" because the oft-confused Democratic presidential candidate "doesn't know where he is".

Reeves encouraged Trump to embrace a reelection message focused on his ability to revive the nation's economy, a familiar suggestion from frustrated Republican officials, though the president has shown little interest in adopting a consistent message.

The US constitution allows to approve an amendment either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures.

Graham said he believed Trump's "concerns about mail-in voting are valid, but delaying the election is not the right answer". A whingeing Trump points to weaknesses in the postal ballot system to seek more time on an Oval Office chair he has done no justice to.

Still, many Democrats cast Trump's tweet as a warning shot and a signal of what the president may be willing to do if it appears likely he will lose in November. "States need to get their acts together when it comes to elections".

President Donald Trump on Thursday raised the idea of delaying the November 3 US elections, an idea immediately rejected by both Democrats and his fellow Republicans in Congress - the sole branch of government with the authority to make such a change.
