U.S. President Donald speaks during a news conference at the White House on July 30, 2020.
U.S. President Donald Trump has again cast doubt on November's election hours after his suggestion that the vote be delayed was rejected by both Democrats and Republicans.
Trump repeated his claim that the widespread use of postal votes because of the coronavirus could lead to massive fraud.
He said he didn't want to see what he called a crooked election or have to wait weeks for the results.
The BBC's David Willis reports.
Donald Trump knows that increased postal voting tends to lead to larger turnouts, which of course would benefit Democrats not least because African Americans would tend to vote Democrat have been hard hit by the coronavirus and could therefore be deterred from going to the polls.
So by saying the vote could be rigged, it almost seems as though he’s seeking to sow distrust in the election system here.
Some say with a possible view to contesting the outcome should it not be in his favor in November.
