US President Donald Trump on July 30 Suggested delaying the 2020 election, in which he is currently lagging badly in the polls, citing the coronavirus and what he said would be "fraudulent" voting. In a series of posts on Twitter, Trump raised concern over the safety and security of votes polled through the mail-in system. The results, under the virtual voting system, could be "inaccurate and fraudulent", he said. "Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???" Trump asked in a tweet. Trump tweeted saying the mail-in voting is already proving to be a catastrophic disaster. Trump, while pushing the case for postponing the polls, also took a swipe against arch-rival China by referring to COVID-19 as "China Virus". Polling in several Democratic and Republican primaries were conducted using the Mail-In ballot system after the outbreak of COVID-19. The demand by Trump to defer the elections till the situation normalises for in-person voting comes amid the massive lead taken against him by rival and Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden. As per the recent surveys, the former Vice President is leading against Trump by nearly 10 percentage points.
