Amid Pandemic Woes, Trump Suggests The Postponement Of 2020 Presidential Elections

Amid Pandemic Woes, Trump Suggests The Postponement Of 2020 Presidential Elections

In just a span of five months, the COVID-19 pandemic has become a very serious problem in the United States of America. Since the first reported case of COVID-19 in the country, US President Donald Trump has been positive that the government is ready for the challenges that this modern-day plague could pose to the American people. Unfortunately, as the COVID-19 cases in the USA reach millions and more than half a million people dead, it looks like the Trump administration is having a hard time beating the pandemic.

With the November 2020 presidential polls coming up, people cannot help but wonder if the whole country could have an election while fighting COVID-19 at the same time. Trump, who is wishing to win reelection in the upcoming elections, recently suggested that the polls should be postponed as the Americans are not yet equipped to cast a vote in this pandemic setup. The suggestion, while showing concern for the welfare of the American people, is thought by the critics as a move to extend the POTUS’ grip on the White House.

Trump Claims That Alternative Methods To Cast Votes This Upcoming Election Are Susceptible To Fraud

Trump appears to be firm on his stand that the election must be delayed until such a time when people can safely go outside their home to cast their vote on voting precincts. There is great risk of the novel coronavirus being spread across the nation as people flock in different precincts. At this point, any event that would have more than ten people within a confined space is prohibited, knowing how only one person with COVID-19 could easily spread the disease to everyone around him.

If the traditional way of voting cannot be performed in the upcoming elections, the apparent alternative for now is to allow the registered voters to cast their votes via mail. However, Trump is against this idea, saying that the result of the election can be easily manipulated through this method. Thus, the POTUS has suggested that the election should be postponed.

Critics, on the other hand, think that Trump’s suggestion to delay the election might be centered on the president’s intention to prolong his stay in the White House. The motive is somthing that you can watch from KissAnime, although the decision regarding the 2020 polls is not up to Trump or any of his allies.
