Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman has rejected a suggestion by President Trump that the U.S. postpone the November election because of security worries.

Wyman says the Constitution makes clear that the presidential term ends at noon on January 20 of the year after the election. She says there’s similar certainty about the end of the congressional term.
