    Trump explicitly floats idea of delaying the election ...

    Just like his attempts to impose federal force into local law enforcement continues to telegraph Trumps authoritarian bent, so now the are significant concerns that he will defy an election result where he loses. Well now he takes another step in his inexorable march to dictator by proposing a 'delay' in the 2020 election.

    It doesn't matter why he would do it, it doesn't matter if he fails to do it, the fact he is trying to do it is sufficient. The traitors to this nation that routinely justify Trump's excess will likely support this as well. And I have no interest whatsoever in their justifications. What I want to be is on record with the simple fact that I've warned you about this president from day 1. And as an election nears that he will lose unless he cheats in some form or fashion, how far he will go to retain his power will become more and more evident as the days progress.

    He has proposed removing term limits. He has infiltrated the DOJ with Cronies willing to do his bidding, to let his friends convictions by judge and jury be overlooked, to punish his enemies. He has put unvetted people beholden only to him in charge of the DHS and leveraged this already questionable agency's power into his own personal nationalized police force. He has gutted relations with NATO to the delight of Putin, and now is removing Troops from Germany. He has twice welcomed foreign powers that are our enemies to interfere on his behalf wrt our elections and done his best to deny their involvement. He has brought this nation to its knees by refusing to deal with the Covid Pandemic according to science and best practice. And now he is putting in to remove the most important element of our republic, free elections themselves.

    He is a traitor to and a clear and present danger to this nation.

    This is not his first effort to cement his position as president for life. I urge all of you that have a mind and have not been blinded by your hatred of liberalism to accept Trump's danger to our nation and our way of life to do all you legally can to make sure this man is out of office by January 2021. To make sure his efforts to undermine the election fail clearly and cleanly.

    He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me."

    I would bet money he did this to distract attention from the devastating economic report that broke this morning. If he did, it's working.

    I can solve the problem of evil without interfering with anyone's free will. So can your God, but he refuses. This is why I'm His moral superior.

    A serious questions, can he do this? Wouldn't the congress just block it? Are there any precedence for doing anything like that at all?

    No, federal law states the date of the election. It would require both houses of Congress to approve moving it. There is a 0% chance the Democratic led house will go for it.

    What he *can* do is plant seeds questioning the legitimacy of the election if he thinks he's going to use. This year, with so many people voting by mail, it's unlikely we'll know the winner the night of the election, so this is very plausible.
