Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday morning to once again lash out at mail-in voting while also calling to delay the upcoming presidential election. And pretty much everyone knew this was coming. Trump is plummeting in the polls behind presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, and this president will do anything to stay in power. This time, though, Trump said the quiet part out loud.

“With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history,” Trump tweeted. “It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”

Twitter users reacted in horror and disbelief. After all, this is still the United States and an incumbent president is attempting to delay the election over his inability to understand that absentee voting is identical to mail-in voting.



House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is smiling somewhere because it would take an act of Congress, as federal law mandates that the election take place on the first Tuesday after November 1st.
