Trump: I will never forget that the Republicans have left me alone

The still US president denounced that the Republicans have left him alone in a campaign to change the electoral results, something he will never forget.

At a meeting held today [24 de diciembre] In Florida, everyone was asking why aren’t Republicans fighting over the fact that Democrats stole rigged elections? They said, in particular, why doesn’t this even happen in the Senate, where you helped eight legislators run for office? How soon they forgot!”, Has denounced the real estate mogul Donald Trump through a message on his Twitter account.

Also, the Republican leader has added in another tweet that he had saved at least eight Republican senators in the elections on November 3, including the leader of the Republican majority in the Senate Mitch McConnell, preventing him from losing “the recent rigged elections” .

A day after the Electoral College of the North American country ratified the triumph of Democrat Joe Biden despite Trump’s accusations about a “generalized fraud” in the presidential elections of November 3, the main Republican senator of the United States, recognized by Biden’s election victory for the first time on December 15, something that, however, was rejected by Trump.

In this regard, the New York tycoon added that “now, almost everyone has taken a step back, observing my fight against the evil and deceitful enemy, that is, the extreme left democrats.” “I will never forget it!”, He asserted.

On November 14, the electoral body confirmed Biden’s victory, surpassing Trump by just over 7,000,000 votes. Meanwhile, the Republican has not yet recognized the triumph of his rival, insisting that he has a chance to challenge the election results based on an alleged massive fraud of which he has not provided any evidence.

The still tenant of the White House resorts to his theory of a conspiracy and arguments, such as electoral fraud, or that he will take the issue of the elections to court, to reverse the results in his favor.

However, so far, all legal actions by the Republican and his team have failed in their attempts to stay in power.

Lethal injection is the most used way to execute these prisoners, according to data compiled by the US NGO, Center for Information on the Death Penalty.

Trump is one of the staunch defenders of the death penalty. The British newspaper The Independent, In an article published on November 11, he expressed concern over attempts of the outgoing US president for breaking the federal execution rate in the North American country.

However, the president-elect of the United States, Democrat Joe Biden, during his election campaign, promised to work to pass legislation that eliminates capital punishment at the federal level.

How far will Donald Trump go?

From the day it became clear that the US election had been won by his adversary, Democrat Joseph Biden, Donald Trump has executed a multi-lane strategy: from the White House he has dedicated himself to discrediting the election and denouncing a nonexistent fraud; his lawyers in key states have presented legal recourses that have failed, but that keep the attention of the press and his followers on the idea that the election is not decided, that perhaps there is a possibility of reversing the result.

As the day arrives when the electoral college meets in Washington to cast their votes and elect Biden, Trump and his lawyers have focused on each of the key states not “certifying” the results and then asking questions about what they will do. the members of the electoral college. The task is impossible, among other things because, as all the judges have pointed out, there is no evidence whatsoever in the demands of the lawyers; but it lengthens the feeling among Trump supporters that the election was fraudulent, undermining the legitimacy of the incoming government.

At the same time, Trump and his cabinet have dedicated themselves, with a rush not seen in recent years, to taking measures that make it more difficult for the Biden administration to work on its agenda, which it announced in the campaign. On issues of the environment, energy, foreign policy and trade, pending nominations for the judiciary, the Trump administration is now in a hurry.

And at the same time, because deep down he knows he will not be in the White House after January 20, Trump is trying to take over the Republican Party to be the undisputed leader of the opposition and then the candidate for the presidency in 2024. That, For example, it would make the various investigations that are underway in state prosecutors on your finances and taxes politically complicated.

This last avenue of strategy may be the most costly for their ambitions, because it would deny any Republican candidate, which there are, the possibility until 2028. And the Republicans have lent themselves to any indecency on the part of Trump, but deny them a political future if you are not subjected to it, it could be the one that ends up costing you the most. Key weeks that come to know what or who will stop the madness that we are seeing in the United States.
