The Wall Street Journal editorial board slammed President Donald Trump Friday over a tweet where he wondered if the 2020 election should be delayed.
Trump tweeted Thursday wondering if America should “Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” The question was met with backlash from many, with some reminding him and the American public that the president doesn’t have the power to change an election date.
Following the tweet, the WSJ editorial board said that Trump was likely “merely raising the issue,” but shut down his comments, noting that it doesn’t help his upcoming election. The board also called Trump’s suggestion “dreadful.”
“Mr. Trump’s opponents—from the media to [former Vice President] Joe Biden—have planted the thought that he won’t accept the results or would try to put off the vote,” the editorial board wrote. “How he helps himself by keeping such disruption narratives in the public’s mind remains a mystery.”
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???
