On Thursday, U.S. President Donald Trump raised the issue of possible postponement of November presidential elections, despite the fact that their date is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. Trump again spoke of possible voter fraud by mail. Trump questioned the legitimacy of the ballot papers that had been used in much larger numbers in primary elections under the Coronavirus Pandemic. He also made unfounded allegations that the vote would be rigged.
The democrats, including the alleged presidential candidate Joe Biden, have already been preparing the protection for voters and the elections amid fears that Trump will attempt to interfere in the elections on 3 November.
