Trump Going To The 'Stall' As An Election Tactic?


Recommended Posts

When you can't win by going toe to toe in basketball, you can always go to a 'stall' tactic and not really play the game...Trump trying to plant seeds of fraud. Sad! 

Trump suggests delaying November election

President Trump on Thursday suggested delaying the November election as he continued to raise the false specter of widespread voting fraud.

"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???" he tweeted.

There is no evidence to support Trump's claims of voting fraud on a massive scale, and adjusting the date of the election would be difficult, if not impossible.

However, the suggestion was an alarming indication that Trump is considering ways to prolong his stay in office as the country reels from a deadly pandemic and the resulting economic crisis.

 

He tweeted about the election shortly after new data showed the economy shrank by a record one-third in the last quarter.

Trump has also been badly trailing in the polls behind Joe Biden, the likely Democratic candidate and former vice president.

The date of the election, which is scheduled for Nov. 3, is set by Congress, not the president. It is difficult to see the Democratic-led House agreeing to a delay.

The Constitution also sets limits on how long the president and vice president can remain in office, and their four-year term expires on Jan. 20.

Trump has previously brushed off questions about whether he was considering a delay for the election.

"The general election will happen on Nov. 3," he said April 3, before his poll numbers nosedived.

The LA Times writer doesn’t realize there’s been a shot clock implemented in the game of basketball.  If they’re that stupid why do I want to read their article.  
 

edit.... excuse me Barry, those were your words. You should educate yourself on basketball before you try making political analogies about the sport.  Lol

I’m all for postponing the election.  The Dems And their mouthpiece media are mostly responsible for where we stand today so let’s let them wait for their chance to get somebody elected.  It wouldn’t bother me

I think the election should be postponed for 4 years ... President Trump should be given his 1st term back due to the Russian collusion hoax, Ukrainian nonsense, ridiculous impeachment farce and totally dishonest media coverage the last 3+ years ...

Interesting point but I think Trump wins going away anyhow. The economy will not improve until the states open back up for business and surely the people can see it is not Trump that is holding back but the dimwits

Fail article. Trump isn't allowed to delay the election. That's a Congressional decision. I'm not even sure Trump could do that with an EO.

Congress cant do it either......the Constitution set the date......

Coincidence that Trump is tweeting about delaying the election right as we get the worst GDP numbers in recorded U.S. history?

I stand corrected. The wording of some of these sections (Article 1, Section 4) for instance, I can see how people could interpret it that way, especially when it comes to Congress.

After actually reading the President’s tweet, I take it as a jab at the liberals for wanting to shut everything else down during this “pandemic”.  He posed it as a question which I took to be very sarcastic after seeing trump’s typical demeanor.

He saw Trump can’t win , got excited 😆 , intimate gratification and pressed send. The fact he thinks a landslide victory is happening shows you how far his TDS has progressed.

I don't think there should be any mail in voting--anywhere. But the polls should open up on October 15--across the nation, they should be open 24/7 until midnight on the 1st Tuesday in November. Then the person with the most electoral votes will be President. 

Come on guys--voting in person is just as safe as a protest. If you can protest, you can vote in person. Otherwise, we need to arrest every person protesting from now until the election. But again, only the hypocritical democrats believe you can protest together and not spread the virus. Stupid is as stupid does.
