Don’t Allow Trump to Postpone the Presidential Election During Pandemic

Target: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

Goal: Publicly denounce Trump’s call to delay the election in November.

President Trump tweeted that he felt that the presidential election in November should be postponed until it is safe for everyone to vote. This call for postponement over concerns for safety during the COVID-19 pandemic stands in stark contrast to his recent claims that it is safe to reopen the economy and schools. Donald Trump is significantly behind in polls, and many people throughout America have feared that Trump may not accept the results of this election. This most recent call to delay the election has only managed to flame these fears. 

Delaying the election sets a dangerous precedent and calls into question the entire fabric of the American government. Trump does not have the authority to change when an election takes place, and to attempt to do so would be a significant overstep of the electoral branch. He has failed in his duties as president at every level, and his first term has led to a raging out of control pandemic, nationwide protest, mass unemployment, financial insecurity, and a looming homelessness crisis.

The threat of fascism is on the horizon and something must be done to prevent it. Sign below and demand that Republican leaders denounce Trump’s call to delay the November election and commit to ensuring that the results are upheld.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senate Majority Leader McConnell

Mr. Trump’s recent tweets about postponing the November presidential election have raised fears surrounding its legitimacy. Trump does not have the power to change when elections are held. To do so would be a dangerous overstep of the Electoral branch of the United States government. 

Many citizens throughout the country fear that Trump will not accept the results of the coming election. There is a growing fear among many that he will do something to disrupt or delegitimize the process. It is, therefore, imperative that the republican leaders come forward to denounce his call to delay the vote and commit publicly to upholding the fairness and legitimacy of this coming election.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Once again the orange twitterer (read TWIT-TERROR) is doing what’s best for him and his political agenda and disregarding the country as a whole and making a mockery of one of the pillars of democracy, namely elections and the power of the vote.
