I presume that that is his own side's fraud which is how he comes to know all about it?

I suspect that postal voting may be more vulnerable to fraud.
I am not aware of any credible evidence that such fraud would be more likely to be "anti Trump" rather than "pro Trump"
A cynic would suspect that the president simply wishes to divert attention from other issues.

A US president has no power to move or delay an election. Other from distracting people from other issues all his tweet today might accomplish is focus attention on the states that have such weak rules that fraud is in fact a possibility. Perhaps some of those can be adjusted before election day and of course those opposed to making them better will look like the jerks they are.

I suspect he is readying his excuses for refusing to accept defeat in the November election. He will only leave the Whitehouse at the point of a gun.

I'm pretty sure the joint chiefs of staff have no problem with that.
Hell carried out in a body bag would be fine with them.

Anyone following the situation in the US with the inability to agree a unemployment insurance deal? This seems of critical importance, and risks leaving millions of Americans (and states) with major money problems within days.

I'm watching it of course as I have some family members effected by it. Both sides need to clean up their versions of the bill by removing all the provisions not germane to the real issue.
