Northam calls Trump’s election delay idea ‘dangerous’
The battle of words between Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and President Donald Trump continued on Thursday with the leader of the Commonwealth questioning the president on his tweet about possibly postponing the 2020 November election because of his fears of mail-in ballots producing a fraud result.
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???

America has never postponed a presidential election—not through two World Wars, a Civil War, or the Spanish flu. The President's suggestion to delay the 2020 election is troubling, dangerous, and another sign he has lost touch with reality.
Register, then vote on November 3rd. https://t.co/VWovcDxJky

Northam noted in his social media post that America has never moved an election even in the face of two world wars, the Civil War, or the Spanish Flu.
The governor closed by saying the president’s suggestion of delay was troubling, dangerous, and another sign that he has lost touch with reality.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told an NBC Kentucky affiliate that Congress has the election day date set in stone.
