Any serious attempt to delay the vote, which Mr Trump is forecast to lose, would spark a wave of fury. He said on Twitter this afternoon: “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???”
Twitter has previously deleted tweets by Mr Trump over the legitimacy of postal voting.
In May, the President had made similar claims which were then subsequently labelled with warning signs providing a link to further information.
Mr Trump then hit back attacking the social media site of stifling free speech.
In a second tweet today, he added: “Mail-In Voting is already proving to be a catastrophic disaster.
“Even testing areas are way off. The Dems talk of foreign influence in voting, but they know that Mail-In Voting is an easy way for foreign countries to enter the race.
“Even beyond that, there’s no accurate count!”
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it has been speculated that they may be more postal votes than previous elections.
Each individual state controls their own voting regulations for federal elections.
States such as Hawaii, California, Colorado and Alaska have announced they will carry out postal voting.
