Jared Kushner Slammed For Saying He Can’t ‘Commit’ To Holding Presidential Election On Nov. 3rd



White House senior advisor Jared Kushner is being slammed for hinting that the 2020 presidential election could be postponed.

Asked if the election could happen on November 3rd, Kushner offered a stunning response:

“I’m not sure I can commit one way or the other, but right now that’s the plan,” the president’s son-in-law told TIME magazine during an interview on Wednesday.

Sherrilyn Ifill, the president of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, was shocked by his remarks.

“I’m sorry. So we’re setting aside Art II section 1 of the Constitution and the federal statute 3 U.S.C. section 1 to let Jared Kushner decide whether we will hold our presidential election this November?” she asked. “Even putting this question to him is an insult to the rule of law.”

She added, “Stop inflating this man – who lacks the humility, the self-regard and the respect for govt and the rule of law to give the only acceptable answer: ‘the timing of the presidential election is a matter of constitutional and federal law and that question is way above my pay grade.’”

Following publication, Kushner released a statement on the subject.

“I have not been involved in, nor am I aware of any discussions about trying to change the date of the Presidential election,” Kushner claimed.
