Democrats reacted one of two ways to Trump's tweet.
They either panicked and said that Trump is a dictator trying to seize power or they laughed and said Trump was desperate.
But many news outlets are arguing, without evidence, that there is no evidence that mail in voting would create problems and that Trump does not have the power to delay and election.
The reality is that under Directive 51 Trump could potentially have this power and it has been raised several times in the past. Created by Roger W Bush leftists were shocked by the brazen powers granted to the president in certain events.
But once Obama got elected no one seemed to care that this power existed. Now that Trump is president perhaps they might start to regret ignoring the directive for so long.
