Trump suggests delaying 2020 US election, Republicans say no

Joe Biden notes Donald Trump calls for delay to 2020 US presidential election

Trump delivered a campaign speech with Florida sheriffs that continued his effort to pin a surge in crime in some of the nation's largest cities on their Democratic mayors as he has threatened to send federal law enforcement to protect what he describes as besieged communities. But, for the sake of democracy, even an ageing Joe Biden would be a saviour of covenants with freedom.

"Under no circumstances will we consider doing so to accommodate the president's inept and haphazard response to the coronavirus pandemic, or give credence to the lies and misinformation he spreads", Ms Lofgren said. They reassured voters that the election would proceed on the constitutionally mandated day as it has for more than two centuries.

Before departing Washington, Trump again falsely claimed that Biden supports defunding the police.

From Trump asking if Canadians burned down the White House in 1812, to Biden calling the United States Canada's "big brother", CTVNews.ca has taken a look at some notable quotes from Biden and Trump about Canada - and our prime minister - over the years.

"Mark my words: I think he is gonna try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can't be held", Biden told supporters at a virtual fundraiser.

Trump can not change the election date without the approval of Congress, and policymakers in both parties made clear they would oppose such a move.

If you're anxious your ballot is going to get lost in the mail, you can go online to track it, just like what you would do with any other package.

Check out The China Report, our new weekly newsletter. Calabresi said he voted for Trump in 2016 and defended the president during the Mueller investigation and impeachment trials. Later in the day, Trump walked back on his suggestion. The president, however, has previously suggested a forthcoming replacement plan without delivering. The presidential elections are scheduled for November 3.

During the pandemic, more than 4.4 million Americans have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 150,000 have died.

"Until recently, I had taken as political hyperbole the Democrats' assertion that President Trump is a fascist", the conservative legal scholar wrote. We still are a country based on the rule of law. Instead, the president sought to portray his provocative suggestion that the election be delayed as stirring a needed public debate. Trump's ultimate goal, however, may have less to do with the election date than undermining the results of the election if he loses. The fear among Democrats and many elections experts in 2020, however, has been that Trump would wield the power of his office to affect the outcome of the election or Americans' ability to vote - particularly if he thought he might be headed for defeat. "Where we're at today isn't where we'll be in November".
