On the day that the Ministry of economy registered the worst economic downturn in the United States since the beginning of the appropriate records, got Donald Trump, apparently, something like a panic attack. He first brought himself to the postponement of the presidential election into the game. Some time ago, as the first wave of the Corona-pandemic raged in Parts of the country, others had thought about, according to the Motto: "What if?"
Trump, whose poll numbers are currently in the basement and up to the presidential election on may 3. November can not expect a rapid recovery of the American economy, makes (allegedly) Provide. In a Tweet he wrote on Thursday that it will come because of the increase of absentee ballots in the Wake of the Corona pandemic to "faulty and fraudulent, the most" choice in American history. Translated, this means: Should win his presumed democratic Challenger, Joe Biden, would he Trump, that is Scam.
The choice is to move to legally, not a thing of the impossibility. The date of the elections, this year on 3. November, could be amended by Congress. The end of the term of office of the President (and Vice President) is, however, rocks: On 20. January 2021 at 12 noon. The 20 want it. Additional articles to the Constitution. Because a constitutional amendment is next to impossible, will leave at the end of the term of office not to shake. Moving the election day would be more conceivable. But it is politically excluded. Even a delay of a few weeks in some cases be preferable, if only for technical and procedural reasons.
Trump can't expect to seriously, even if the Corona-crisis in America is much worse and the pressure on the relevant political actors should avert the rise, potential hazards for the people in the polling stations. The necessary degree of political Civility and a sense of responsibility is not in the poisonous climate in Washington is currently simple to imagine. The President, has, to a large extent, it has created as something Else. He wants to see now is doubt as to a possible election outcome. After all the experience of more democratic voters to make of the post.
You don't like to imagine what Trump considers himself an unloved genius whose Corona-crisis management is, as before, of his office, unworthy, could do anything, if the choice should just go out in favor of his Challenger, Joe Biden. What Donald Trump now, three months before the November date, painted as a huge embarrassment for the United States to the wall, is nothing else than the own disguised doubt that he will be granted a second term by the electorate. By the way, Election experts consider suspect, in the case of absentee ballots, there could be systematic errors, unfounded and wrong.Updated Date: 31 July 2020, 07:20
