The election of the Head of State in the United States will be held as scheduled on November 3. US President Donald Trump did not consider postponing the general election, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said in an interview with CBS on Sunday, August 2.
“He [President Donald Trump] didn’t think about postponing the election … We are going to hold the election November 3, and the president will win it,” he said.
It’s just a general vote by mail, Meadows said, which the official considered “a bad idea for the country. In his opinion, a delay will occur if the elections are held in the format Trump opposes because the authorities are simply “not ready” to handle the processing of the ballots.
“We have to make sure that the ballot paper is put in the ballot box by a person himself and someone else will not be able to carry out fraud,” said the representative of the White House. For that reason, he added, Trump acted responsibly, drawing attention to problems with this type of voting.
July 30, the head of the White House said that the proposed voting by mail in the coronavirus could give “the most inaccurate results. He asked on Twitter if it was possible to postpone the date of voting until voters could “vote correctly and safely. At the same time, the U.S. leader stressed that representatives of the Democratic Party talk about foreign influence in the elections, but they know that it is mail-order voting that remains an easy way to do so.
Currently, former U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden is ahead of the current head of state Donald Trump in three states strategically important for the current leader.
The U.S. presidential election is due on November 3, 2020.
