ATLANTA (AP) — President Donald Trump has raised the prospect of delaying a presidential election, contending the expansion of voting by mail will lead to history's most fraudulent U.S. election.
There's no precedent in modern politics for the sort of delay Trump is suggesting. The idea, floated in a series of tweets, prompted swift pushback from officials in both parties and much head-scratching.
A closer look at the key questions and answers about the president's suggestion:
Will 2020 be the 'most inaccurate and fraudulent' election, as Trump says?
Was mail voting a 'catastrophic disaster' in the primaries, as Trump says?
Can Trump get the election moved?
Why is Trump talking about an election delay?
Is vote by mail an 'easy way' for foreign countries to interfere?
Trump says universal vote by mail is bad and absentee ballots are 'good.' What's the difference?
