Trump suggests at moving US elections

Donald Trump has suggested that the US election should be delayed.

The US elections are set to go to be held on November 3.

However, in a tweet last week, Trump floated the idea of postponing the highly anticipated event.

While Trump maybe asking the question, many experts believe he is unable to make such a decision.

The decision to move the election can only be made by Congress. Currently, Congress, at the moment is in the control of the Democrats – and of course they will not want to postpone this election.

What does the law say?
According to Article II of the US constitution, it is up to Congress to choose the timing of the election. 

In 1845 a law was passed setting the first Monday in November as that date.
