President Donald Trump does not have the authority to delay an election (”Trump’s pitch to delay election is ‘absurd,’ suggests he could try to hold job if he loses, Maryland Dems say,” July 30). As it is, there is too much power in the executive branch.

I hope people will vote in November and move this authoritarian regime to the history books. Then Congress should begin to remove some presidential powers so our country cannot get to this point again.
