ACLU Comment on Trump Tweet About Delaying Election
NEW YORK — In a tweet this morning, President Trump suggested the November election could be delayed.
Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project, had this reaction:
“This is America. We are a democracy, not a dictatorship. The Constitution empowers Congress to set the date of the election, and Congress set that date for November. Nothing President Trump says, does, or tweets can change that fact.”
