(July 30) Watch live as President Donald Trump holds a press briefing at the White House on Thursday, July 30, in Washington, D.C. Earlier Thursday, Trump raised the notion of delaying the Nov. 3 election until after the coronavirus pandemic eases, something he cannot do without the consent of lawmakers who have already rejected the idea. Trump suggested the election should be delayed “until people can properly, securely and safely vote,” suggesting without offering evidence that mail-in voting will be subject to fraud. The president’s tweet comes as his poll numbers continue to sink against rival Joe Biden, who is leading nationally and in battleground states. “With Universal Mail-in Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRADULENT Election in history,” Trump tweeted. “Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” The Trump campaign quickly began to offer explanations for the president’s remark. Spokesman Hogan Gidley said in a statement that the president was “just raising a question” -- but that question got a swift and uncommonly bipartisan answer from Congress: No. Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/2TwO8Gm QUICKTAKE ON SOCIAL: Follow QuickTake on Twitter: twitter.com/quicktake Like QuickTake on Facebook: facebook.com/quicktake Follow QuickTake on Instagram: instagram.com/quicktake Subscribe to our newsletter: https://bit.ly/2FJ0oQZ Email us at [email protected] QuickTake by Bloomberg is a global news network delivering up-to-the-minute analysis on the biggest news, trends and ideas for a new generation of leaders.
