President Trump is making headlines with a morning tweet in which he questioned whether the U.S. should consider delaying the November presidential election due to voter fraud concerns.

He tweeted, "With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???"

Trump's tweet comes on the heels of widespread vote-counting problems after New York's mail-in-voting election which was caused by the pandemic.

New York Democrat candidate Suraj Patel, who is running against U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, is suing over the mail-in voting problems, pointing out that 30% of mail-in ballots received in his Brooklyn congressional district were discarded.

President Trump's Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany blasted New York's vote counting as an "absolute catastrophe" and a reason to question voting by mail.

The U.S. presidential election is always slated for the Tuesday after the first Monday in November. That's mandated by federal law so it would require an act of Congress to change, and with Democrats controlling the House of Representatives, that seems unlikely.
