WASHINGTON ó President Donald Trump on Thursday questioned whether the 2020 presidential election should potentially be postponed, claiming it could be ripe for fraud.

I am 100% behind our president, but not in this matter.

We must continue the vote at the appointed time, otherwise we open a door that can not ever be closed again.

Good, bad, or ugly, we must hold the election.

Like i've said before. I am for Trump, yes, I totally agree he can't keep his damn mouth shut and he's pulled some stupid stunts but he's way better than Biden and I 100% agree with you that the election should be held on schedule whether anybody likes it or not.

Its safe to go to the polls by observing the rules of wearing a mask and socially distancing, what is the problem? WE go to Walmart and survive.

Just increase early voting by a couple of weeks. Reduce the crowds. If you cant get your butt down there and stand (or sit) in line to vote early, then tough ****. No mail ins.... vote in person or sit this one out

.The first thing the Biden / China government would do is take away guns to stop resistance as China pillages U.S. resources as they also hunt down those " hoarders " " preppers " . After all they will want everyone dependent on their dictator . --- It is known to both sides Democrats and Republicans that the Democrats are trying again as they did in the 2016 election to rig the election . Having an honest election with only U.S. citizens voting and voting only one time seems like a reasonable thing to expect to me .Delay it until an honest election can be held .

I think Trump is trolling the media. He does and says things to for the media to make claims and report stuff that is not true, and make the media look stupid. He has done this from day 1. Also, he is against mail in voting because of the extreme possibility of voter fraud. Anyone who wants to vote early can get an absentee ballot in any state, any time after the ballots are printed, which is usually about a month before the election.

If his goal with this tweet was to make the MEDIA look stupid... it backfired. The President looked stupid.

It's tricky to put a price on the value of a life. On the other hand, maintaining a lockdown (or some version of a lockdown) is not without social and health costs, either.

Even if 300,000 Americans end up dying from COVID (really dying from COVID, not just coded that way, current counts are almost certainly overestimated by at least 15%), that would be 0.1% of Americans. A big number, but is it big enough to demand the other 99.9% remain locked inside, while thousands die from suicide due to depression as a result? Is it worth causing entire industries to collapse never to return? To say nothing of the social and health consequences of an extended economic meltdown.

Increasingly it seems like we should rip the bandaid off and move on. The cure is not worth the cost. High-risk people can self-quarantine. The rest of us need to go on living.

if the media and the left stand up and demand the election take place rather than delay (which was not really possible anyway, but that's what makes it such a great con), then they'll have little choice but accept the outcome.

There'a weird cognitive dissonance going on where nearly everyone wants to get back to work, but a huge group of people refuse to take an health precaution. Look at Herman Cane's tweet about the Tulsa rally, not wearing a mask has become a moronic point of pride for Trumpers. It's like they HAVE to take the opposite stance of the dems on everything.

a man with cancer definitely should be taking precautions, perhaps even pre-covid.

most people are not as susceptible, or as vulnerable, as herman cain.

Yep... we elect people to make those decisions and then those folks have to answer for their decisions on Election Day. I doubt very many elected officials want to face an election with 300,000 Americans dead of COVID-19.

One reason this administration is facing a tough election is that the United States has the worst of both worlds: a Depression level economic disaster AND more sick and dead than any other country.

He might still be alive if wearing a mask wasn't seen as capitulating to the dems.

Wearing a mask might have helped Mr. Cain. Had everyone else there been wearing a mask, it would likely have helped him even more. However, his least risky move would have been not to put himself in a room full of 6,000 screaming people.
