Trump suggests delaying election amid ‘fraud’ claims, but has no power to do so

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Thursday suggested that perhaps the United States would need to “delay the election” on November 3, claiming that mail-in voting would make this fall’s election “the most inaccurate and fraudulent in history.”

Trump has no power to unilaterally delay elections, which are set for the first Tuesday in November through a 19th century law passed by Congress.
