President Donald Trump smacked down another absurd conspiracy theory from Democrats this week after several top figures claimed he may try to postpone the 2020 presidential election.
During a White House press briefing on Monday, the president was asked about presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden and other Democrats claiming that he will try to postpone the November 3 election.
Trump said that is completely false.
“I never even thought of changing the date of the election. Why would I do that? Nov. 3. It’s a good number. No, I look forward to that election,” Trump told reporters on Monday.
“I’m not thinking about it at all,” he added. “Not at all.”

The president said the assertion was “made-up propaganda” by Biden’s campaign staff.
Last week, Biden predicted Trump would try to delay the general election during a virtual fundraiser.
“Mark my words: I think he is going to try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can’t be held,” Biden said Thursday. “Imagine threatening not to fund the post office. Now, what in God’s name is that about? Other than trying to let the word out that he’s going to do all he can to make it very hard for people to vote. That’s the only way he thinks he can possibly win.”
Biden has bigger issues to worry about than the election after allegations that he allegedly sexually assaulted Tara Reade, a former staffer back in 1993 when he was serving in the U.S. Senate.
Last week, a damning video clip resurfaced of Tara Reade’s mother calling in to “Larry King Live” on CNN in 1993.
Reade’s mother can be heard asking King for advice on what to do as her daughter had a “problem” senator, at that time Biden’s position.
Tara Reade’s mother called Larry King in 1993 to talk about Sen. Joe Biden sexually assaulting her daughter. More evidence then was ever presented against Justice Kavanaugh. CNN and Democrats are ignoring it. Do not let them. Trend Larry King.

Last month, journalist Katie Harper released an audio clip of an interview with Tara Reade.
Reade begins by detailing how she was instructed to rush a gym bag to Biden at the time. Upon reaching then-Senator Biden with the bag, Reade claims that he greeted her by name, and proceeded to sexually assault her in a “side area.”
“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing. There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall,” Reade claims.
“His hands were on me, and underneath my clothes,” Reade later says. “He went down my skirt, but then up inside. He penetrated me with his fingers.”
Reade alleges that Biden was kissing her and asking her if she “wanted to go somewhere else,” and that after the alleged assault was complete, he said, “C’mon man, I heard you liked me.”
Reade told Harper that Biden’s alleged phrase stuck with her because it made her think about what she “might have said.”
For me, it was like everything shattered in that moment because I knew that we were alone. It was over, right? He wasn’t trying to do anything more – but I looked up to him, he was like my father’s age, he was like this champion of women’s rights in my eyes and I couldn’t believe it was happening. It seemed surreal. I just felt sick because when he pulled back, he looked annoyed, and he said something else to me that I don’t want to say, and then he said – I must have looked shocked … I don’t know how I looked, but I must have looked something because he grabbed me by the shoulders, and said, “You’re okay. You’re fine. You’re okay. You’re fine,” and then he walked away, and went on with his day.
She then told Harper what Biden allegedly said: “He just like pointed at me and he said, ‘You’re nothing to me!’ And then he just looked at me and said, ‘You’re nothing. Nothing.’ … I must’ve reacted because that’s when he took me by the shoulders and he said, ‘You’re okay. You’re fine. You’re okay.’”
Last week, it was reported that the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department is “actively investigating” Reade’s claims.
