Soon you might feel sorry for that man. US President Donald Trump (74) still seems not to have arrived in reality. Saturday night he was stunned and on Saturday he asked where his election victory was stolen: “I had such a big advantage in all these states until late election night,” Trump tweeted four days after that election night. “almost seeing the protrusions miraculously disappear over the course of days”.
The besieged president still seems convinced that he can secure electoral victory by legal means: “Maybe these advantages will return when our legal proceedings go on!”, Threat.
Ballots in US polling stations are counted jointly by Democratic and Republican party representatives. And the votes cast by letter are counted late. And the more votes are counted, the more Trump is left behind. This is although it is not yet a single conclusive evidence of the large-scale election fraud mentioned by Trump.
Trump’s big mistake
Perhaps Trump’s fatal mistake: the crown pandemic radically changed the 2020 elections. As a precaution, Democrats have called on their party supporters to cast their votes in the mail so as not to expose themselves to unnecessary Covid 19 infections.
Trump called this process prone to fraud from the start. There has been no call for Republicans to follow the Democrats’ example in the face of the virus crisis.
And especially because on this election day in the United States – which fell on a working Tuesday as always – queues were often heard for hours, many Republicans would have preferred to stay at home and therefore not vote for Trump.
Pence holds the rod to the boss, Giuliani talks about dead voters
At least the vice still holds the rung to the president. For the first time since election night, US Vice President Mike Pence (61) has publicly lined up behind his boss. Pence supports the president in his struggle to distinguish between supposedly legal and illegal votes.
Others, such as Trump’s controversial lawyer Rudy Giuliani (76), are more specific. Giuliani is outraged on Twitter that at least 21,000 deaths are registered as voters in the key state of Pennsylvania.
If Trump’s lawyers can prove that the dead did indeed vote, and for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, 77, then they could have a case for the courts.
