Nope presidential election has to take place in 2020 and Trump has no authority to delay it. Trump is preparing to lose, he want to make Trumpers doubt the legitimacy and integrity of our election. I would think conservatives would be up in arms about the mere suggestion of this.


Well, we got our first bite!

Skunks off the boat, friends! 03-lmfao


This guy. The POTUS. Too much.

It can't happen, smart tweet because now the media will talk about that for the next 2 days instead of anything else.

And demand it proceed as normal.

The man is a genius. A stable one at that.

I think the left and right give Trump too much credit as far as overall intelligence goes. He's living in the moment and he's not confident in a win. He's not being devious and I doubt that he's trying to distract.

Exactly what i was thinking. I think even most undecideds have decided... certainly on Trump...

Overall intelligence, perhaps... but the average voter isn't that intelligent. He certainly seems to know enough about the electoral process to have completely snookered Hillary and the DNC in 2016.

I suppose it could have been sheer luck, but that seems highly unlikely. It also seems that he's pretty tied in to social media/twitter and how people operate there... That was an area that Obama also really focused on....

I don't know if his plan is 'battle fatigue' or 'deflection from bad news' or 'create enough ridiculous reactions that people turn away from the dems' or 'keep republicans quiet about their willingness to vote for him over biden such that polls show Biden winning big and he pulls another 2016'.... or yes... perhaps it's just who he is...

But he beat Hillary last time and is now running against IMO, an even worse candidate. The biggest thing Biden had going for him in 2016 was sympathy and his ties to Obama... which seem gone now and highly strained at best respectively.

What do you do to distract from yours? Whatever it is, isn't working.

Kinda weird the Democrats and media are doing the same thing they did last election. "Will Trump accept the results of the Election 'if' he loses?" That didn't work so well last time. Also we know the previous administration was doing everything in their power to keep him from winning and even after he won were actively trying to get him out of office during the dead period, but Trump is going to affect the election? Sounds like desperation on the Democrat side to me. If they were so confident in winning why are they putting doubt in the election. I don't ever remember any Republicans ever disputing the results of a Presidential election. That's a Democrat thing.

I repeat. There is no significant amount of undecided voters anywhere. I mean, what could be a more obvious difference, either way, than Trump vs. Biden?

Orange Man Bad vs. the VP of Senility. Capitalism vs. Marxism/Socialism. You either love the idea of one and hate the other, or vice versa.

No middle ground here.

Yet still lefties are cheering. "look what we did!!" 01-donnankungfu

Won't matter to those considering voting for Trump. Most don't blame him for what the left has been doing, trying to keep the economy down.
