Donald Trump is considering attending a protest on Saturday against the alleged fraud that benefited Democrat Joe Biden in the US presidential elections.
“It is heartwarming to see the tremendous support out there, especially the demonstrations that are emerging across the country.“Trump said in a message left Friday on Twitter.
The New York mogul even suggested that you could “come and say hello” to the protesters who would take to the streets of Washington DC, the capital, to express their support for him after the presidential elections in which, according to projections by local media, he failed against Biden, who has won 306 electoral votes.
“These elections were faked!“, Insisted the Republican, reiterating the alleged” theft of the elections “and” fraudulent acts “, especially in relation to votes by mail, in favor of his Democratic rival.
Different extreme right groups, close to Trump, indicated that they would take part in the march in support of the Republican magnate’s claims about the alleged electoral fraud. There are fears that the march will result in violent acts, taking into account that most of the aforementioned groups are heavily armed.
The main US media have pointed to Biden as the winner of the elections on November 3, however, the General Administration of Services (GSA, for its acronym in English), the agency in charge of initiating the transition of power in that country, has not yet recognized the victory of the Democratic candidate and, therefore, has not proceeded to implement any measure for the transfer.
Faced with such a situation, a group of more than 150 former senior National Security officials sent a letter to the GSA on Thursday asking it to begin the transition process and warned that the refusal to acknowledge Biden’s victory would have dangerous consequences for the country.
Biden has, in turn, been disdaining Trump and his circle’s attempts to hinder the transition, and is making the necessary preparations for the inauguration, scheduled for January 20, 2021.
Along the same lines, the Democrat named Ron Klain, 59, an experienced adviser and a strong critic of the outgoing president’s management of the coronavirus pandemic, as head of his future cabinet.
