TRUMP SUGGESTS DELAYING ELECTION: The Senate is convening after Pres. Trump floated the idea of delaying the November elections due to the coronavirus pandemic, though he does not have the legal or logistical power to do. The presidential election date is established by federal law and would require an act of Congress to change. Trump also made baseless claims about voter fraud, tweeting, ‘With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???’ Multiple studies have found voter fraud to be virtually nonexistent in the U.S., and there is no evidence that voting by mail poses greater risks than voting in person. Out of more than 100 million mail-in ballots cast there in the last 20 years, there have been only about a dozen documented fraudulent ballots.
