President Trump on Thursday suggested delaying November’s presidential election.
The dates of federal elections are set by Congress, and the Constitution makes no provisions for a delay to the Jan. 20 inauguration.
Any such move would require a change of federal law, meaning it would need to go through Democrats in the House of Representatives in addition to the
Republican-controlled Senate. (The Congressional Research Service actually weighed in on this topic in March, specifically noting that a president has
no legal authority to change the date of the election.)
People can tune into Lewis's funeral and still see the news if they want to, FYI. Trump's tweet will only dominate the minds of the leftists who hate
him. Nobody else really cares because we all agree that if you can go to the grocery store or go to a protest or go to a restaurant then you can go to
a poll to vote.
