On July 30, Trump tweeted, “Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”
Trump does not have the power to delay elections. He is trying to distract people from abysmal economic numbers and the funeral of voting rights legend Rep. John Lewis.
However, Trump’s suggestion is still incredibly dangerous because it undermines trust in the election process. Trump’s GOP enablers in Congress should speak clearly and loudly against this affront to our Constitution. Likewise, they should vote on and pass the election security bills that the Senate GOP has been blocking since 2019.
