Donald Trump walks back election ‘delay’ amid backlash

US President Donald Trump has walked back the idea of a “delay” to November’s presidential election just hours after suggesting it. Mr Trump was criticised by both the Republicans and the Democrats after raising the possibility of delaying the poll as he made unsubstantiated allegations that increased postal voting will result in fraud. The president told reporters: “Do I want to see a date change? No. But I don’t want to see a crooked election.”
