Washington: US President Donald Trump has said that he doesn’t want to delay the November election hours after raising the possibility on Twitter.
“Do I want to see a date change? No, I don’t want a delay. I want to have the election,” he said during a press conference at the White House on Thursday, local media reported.
“But I don’t want to see a crooked election,” he further said while criticising mail-in voting.
“I also don’t want to have to wait for three months and then find out that the ballots are all missing and the election doesn’t mean anything,” the US President told reporters.
“Mail-in ballots will lead to the greatest fraud,” he stated.
In a tweet on Thursday morning , Mr Trump claimed, without providing any proof or evidence, that mail-in voting, will be “the most inaccurate & fraudulent election in history.”
“It will be a great embarrassment to the USA,” he wrote.
“Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” he added.
