Trump’s Dangerous Endgame

This busy election season doesn’t seem to ever end as the number of votes moves up slowly. But where the count is going is now clear: the remaining votes in Georgia and Philadelphia are all in heavily democratic areas. Joe Biden is well on his way to become the next President of the United States.

One way to gauge the likely outcome of the vote count is to listen to Republican anger. Donald Trump gave a press conference Thursday night setting out his allegations that the election was stolen from him, which have no factual basis. “If you count the legal votes, I win easily,” said Trump said. “If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal our vote.”

Trump sounded exhausted during the speech, which paradoxically was sluggish to deliver, even if it was a messaging fire. “I’ve been talking about mail-in votes for a long time,” said Trump. “It really destroyed our system. It’s a corrupt system and it makes people corrupt, even if they are not inherently, but they get corrupt. It’s too easy.” Trump added, “Detroit and Philadelphia, easily known as two of the most corrupt political places in our country, cannot be responsible for determining the outcome of a presidential race, a very important presidential race.”

The most disturbing part of the briefing came when Trump discovered that his supporters were becoming violent because they were not allowed to enter a counting room. Trump said, “You put a piece of paper on all the windows so you can’t look in and the people who are banned are very unhappy and get a little violent.” It’s hard to read these comments just as a threat.

Trump’s comments were a farrago of lies. During a fact check, the AP written down“One claim after another actually had no basis, like his allegation that election officials in Pennsylvania and Detroit were trying to ban election observers from polling stations.”

Some of Trump’s former allies have resisted Trump’s allegations of evidence. The Fox News report page has was relentless If one insists, there is “no evidence” of the corruption Trump claims, although the cable side has often expressed views in support of the president.

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was the most prominent Republican to break with Trump. “We didn’t hear about any evidence today,” Christie said told Abc news. “Something like that just ignites without informing it. And without information, we cannot allow inflammation. “
