WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump, whose suggestion to delay the 2020 U.S. election was roundly rejected earlier on Thursday, said the results of the vote should be known on election night.

“Must know Election results on the night of the Election, not days, months, or even years later!” Trump said on Twitter, referring to mail-in balloting that could take a longer time to tally votes.
