In a tweet Thursday, President Trump suggested that the 2020 election should be delayed, to allow for more safety and to avoid universal mail-in voting, which he asserts will result in an inaccurate outcome. But can he even do that?
We get reaction from Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin. We also take listener calls with former presidential adviser David Gergen, who is also the founding director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, where he is a professor. We also hear from Michael Curry, former president of the Boston Branch of the NAACP, a member of the National NAACP Board of Directors, and Deputy CEO & General Counsel for the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers.

This segment aired on July 30, 2020.
