US President Donald Trump has ruled out a deferment of the US presidential elections, slated for 3 November, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“I never even thought of changing the date of the election. Why would I do that? 3 November, it's a good number,” Trump told reporters at his White House news conference.
His likely Democratic opponent Joe Biden last week said Trump was considering changing the date. "Mark my words, I think he is gonna try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can't be held," Biden said during an online fundraiser.
“No, I look forward to that election and that was just made a propaganda not by him but by some of the many people that are writing little segments. I see all of the time statements made you say something, statement made per Joe Biden, Sleepy Joe,” Trump said. “ He didn't make those statements. Somebody did but they said he made it. No, let him know I am not thinking about it at all. Not at all, he said.”
