Trump defends tweet on possible Election Day delay at contentious press conference | Fox News

"You're sending out hundreds of millions of universal mail-in ballots. Hundreds of millions. Where are they going? Who are they being sent to? It's common sense," Trump said. "I want an election, and a result, much more than you. I think we're doing very well. ... I don't want to see a rigged election."

The president held up a Wall Street Journal article entitled "New York's Mail-Vote Disaster," as well as a CBS News article entitled "Vote-by-mail experiment reveals potential problems within postal voting system ahead of November election." He cited a similar piece in The Washington Post.

The press conference followed a backlash against Trump's comments from both sides of the aisle on Thursday, with Democrats railing against the suggestion and some Republicans saying they opposed it. The Senate's top Republican, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, flatly told a Kentucky news station the election would not be moving.
