We are all aware of the outcome of the 2020 Election by now, as well as the backlash from the Trump campaign. As of the writing of this, The Trump administration is still not letting the Biden Transition Team begin the transition of power. No one who has paid attention to things over the last few years should be surprised by this, Trump himself eluded to there not being a peaceful transition of powers.
Well, we’ve been through another election cycle and maybe the most controversial yet. Chances are, you’re crying foul over unfounded claims of fraud, or you’re dancing in the streets. But for those of you dancing, the next two months may be the most dangerous two months we will ever face under Donald J. Trump. What can we do?
The Trump train is leaving the station.
This is the last call for all of the white supremacists, militias, and wayward Republican voices.
The Election is done. A winner was declared, and it was not you. The voting was not rigged in any way, shape, form, or fashion. In fact, the Department of Homeland Security has stated that this was the most secure election in the history of this country.
Of all that Donald Trump is being accused of by his critics and other analysts, the one thing that drives the man is the crushing desire to be an emperor! Unlike his father before him. Donald Trump sees in himself the modern incarnation of a dynasty where he will be the flag bearer. And what better place to be such a monarch than the United States of America!
We are ten days removed from the most unprecedented election in our lifetime. After several long days of watching the election results creep in, we now know one thing to be abundantly clear, and that is that Donald Trump, come January 20, 2021, will not be President of the United States.
My last Open Letter to Trump was a while ago. From The Netherlands I follow you, and as a journalist I need to be undecided which party I choose – as far as that is possible.
I am not sure where to start, but one thing for sure is that I have started voting at the age of 18 and the year was 1984. I voted for the first time just before heading to boot camp in Orlando, Florida. I joined the Navy and got all my physicals down in Massachusetts in October after my 18 th birthday.
For four years we, the American people, have been:
Force fed your ignorance
Force fed you narcissism
Force fed your bigotry
In America, the citizens cast votes to elect a president every four years. In 2016 Hilary Clinton received more of the popular vote than Donald Trump but he won the electoral votes. This is why he has been the president for the past four years. In 2020 more people voted for Joe Biden that Trump and Biden also won the electoral votes. 74,000 Americans voted for Biden and 71,000 voted for Trump. US citizens made personal choices and there was nothing spiritual about it. Even so, Trumps spiritual adviser Paula White assured him that God had given him the victory because she had summoned angels from African and South America to do battle on his behalf.
In 2016, when it was projected that Trump won the election, I was sitting in a room with other first-time voters; all of which from my memory were queer in some capacity. Earlier that day we had voted with pure excitement, honored to be taking part in our democracy and ever sure that the winners within that system would be those who sought to defend it. That is to say, we were sure that Donald Trump and his anti-democratic hateful speech towards half of our citizens had already guaranteed his loss.
For all of my adult life as a voter, the loser in a presidential election always calls the winner to congratulate him. I do recall in 2000, Al Gore conceded to George Bush then retracted his statement due to a recount. Eventually, he did acknowledge that he lost the election. The big question on the minds of a lot of Americans right now is whether or not Donald Trump will concede and congratulate Joe Biden. The truth is that it really does not matter. A concession speech is a courtesy and not written into the US constitution. No one has to make that phone call but it is done to show good sportsmanship.
