US President Donald Trump explained his statement about the possibility of postponing the election with a desire to draw attention to the disadvantages of voting by mail. He made his comments on Thursday, July 30, at a briefing for journalists at the White house.
“I wanted to explain to people, but it doesn’t even require a special explanation, that what happens in November is going to be a mess,” he said.
The results of the postal vote may not be known until “a week, or a month, or years” later, the us leader added, and he considers such a situation unacceptable.
As Trump previously stated, representatives of the Democratic party talk about foreign influence on the election, but they know that voting by mail remains an easy way to do this.
At present, former Vice President of the United States Joe Biden is ahead in the polls of the current head of state Donald Trump in three strategically important States for the current leader.
The US presidential election is due to take place on November 3, 2020.
