Speaking at a virtual campaign fundraiser on Monday, Biden said he thought Trump would do everything in his power to “claim this election is fraudulent.”

“He suggested we should postpone the election, full of cruel lies about how mail-in votes were a fraud, and how so terrible it was,” Biden said.
