A few hours after US President Donald Trump suggested via Twitter to postpone this year’s presidential election, he said he did not want it at a press conference on Thursday. He remains concerned about voting by mail, according to American media.

“I don’t want to postpone. I want to hold the elections. But I also don’t want to wait three months and then find out that the ballots are all missing, and the elections don’t mean anything, ” Trump told reporters in the White House.

The president cited recent media reports of potential problems with late-voting ballot papers. He said it could take weeks, months, or even years to resolve this. “Do I want to see a date change? No, but I don’t want to see unfair elections, ‘he is quoted by, among others, the Reuters news agency.

Trump has been criticizing postal voting for some time. He describes that system as extremely susceptible to fraud. According to American media, it has never been shown that people cheat on a large scale when people can vote by post.
