Only Congress can ….
If Congress doesn’t?
The President’s term is up come January 20th after the election….
The wall’s ARE closing in on Donald Trump and he’s trying to run excuses…
Anybody think Democrats in the House would go along with this?
This IS a admittance that he’s sure his time is running out…
And it comes back to Congress in the end…
The people he had no use for….
Somewhere Nancy Pelosi IS smiling….
The U.S. Constitution gives the power to regulate the “time, place and manner” of elections to the U.S. House and Senate, with Congress also empowered to alter the rules. Nowhere is the president granted such power.
In addition, the Constitution spells out a hard end to a president’s term on Jan. 20 in the year following a presidential election.
Trump’s tweet came shortly after a report was released showing the U.S. economy shrank 9.5 percent from April through June, the largest quarterly decline since the government began publishing data 70 years ago, and the latest, sobering reflection of the pandemic’s economic devastation.

It will require every single one of us to make that happen.We will see you at the ballot box on November 3rd, @realDonaldTrump.”…
With this admission that he KNOWS he’s in trouble ?
Will Republican lawmakers in Congress begin to seriously walk away from supporting their party leader to try and save themselves…Or?….Will they go down with the Trump ship….
The Trump ‘juice’ should be flowing away from him in increase force ?
Donald Trump , true to form appears to about to fuck something else up as his history has shown he does quite often…
Shame on the Republicans that rode/ride in his bus…
