With 94 days until the election, people on both sides of the aisle continue to push back against Donald Trump’s threat to “delay the election.” Today Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) is sending a message loud and clear:
No, Mr. President. You’re not going to postpone the election. You’re not going to dismantle the Postal Service. You’re not going to undermine the vote-by-mail system. This election will have the largest voter turnout in history, and you’re going to lose.
Sanders added that Democrats aren’t the only ones sounding the alarm now:
Trump’s recent tweet that we delay our election “is fascistic and itself grounds for immediate impeachment.” That’s not Bernie Sanders talking. That’s Steven Calabresi, co-founder of the rightwing Federalist Society. Trump is a threat to democracy. Together we will defeat him.
