Fox News Political Editor: Trump’s Election Delay Tweet Is ‘Flagrant Expression of His Current Weakness’
Fox News politics editor Chris Stirewalt lashed out at President Donald Trump floating the idea of delaying the election on Thursday, saying it is a “flagrant expression of his current weakness” and reveals the president’s “weak position” for re-election.
Moments after it was announced the U.S. economy had suffered its worst quarter in history, the president posted an explosive tweet pushing an unproven conspiracy that mail-in voting will result in widespread voter fraud. He proposed delaying November’s presidential election.
“With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history,” Trump wrote. “It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”
During Thursday’s broadcast of America’s Newsroom, Fox News correspondent John Roberts pointed out that the president doesn’t have the constitutional authority to upend the election before offering some possibilities on Trump’s objectives.
