Trump does not give up: “Will appeal”

Trump does not give up: A Pennsylvania federal judge rejected Donald Trump’s lawsuit to suspend the certification of millions of votes in the state. According to Judge Matthew Brann, the case, based on allegations of irregularities, is “unfounded” as no merit legal arguments and speculative accusations were presented to the court. “In the United States of America, this cannot justify depriving a single voter of the right to vote, let alone all voters in its sixth most populous state,” the judge wrote. Joe Biden in Pennsylvania has an 80,000-vote lead. Trump, however, does not give up. “Will appeal!” He tweeted, announcing he will appeal to the Pennsylvania Third Circuit Court to eventually bring the case in front the Supreme Court.

The recount in Georgia

His legal team also called for a new recount in Georgia. After the state was awarded to Biden with a lead of 12,284 votes, compared to about 14,000 votes in the first count. A possible second recount will not be manual but will take place by scanning the cards. For the past 28 years, Georgia had always gone to the Republicans, the last Democratic candidate before Biden to win it was Bill Clinton in 1992. Already on Friday, President Trump received two setbacks. The authorities of Georgia certified the subtle victory by President-elect Joe Biden, and the Michigan Republicans said after a meeting in the White House that they had found nothing to justify the reversal of the vote in their state.

The lost appeals

Trump has already lost or withdrawn about thirty appeals aimed at blocking the proclamation of the Democratic challenger after the presidential elections on November 3, but that in Pennsylvania is perhaps the most significant defeat.

The endless campaign on Twitter

Trump’s rain of tweets is dense. “Dominion-izing the vote,” he writes in bursts: part one, two, and three of conspiracy theories for a vote he does not want to accept. The social network places red labels: “Untrusted content” writes under each presidential tweet. But the discussion is underway. User comments mostly urge Trump to surrender.

 “Why is Joe Biden rapidly forming” a new administration “when my investigators have found hundreds of thousands of illegal votes sufficient to overturn” the presidential outcome “in at least four states, and thus have enough votes to win the election? ” Trump asks. Then he hopes that lawmakers and courts will have the courage to do what necessary to maintain the integrity of our elections and America. “The world is watching,” he adds. 

Trump does not intend to step aside. According to the Washington Post, he could announce his candidacy for the 2024 presidential elections by the end of the year. He would explain to his collaborators that he wanted to remain an “omnipresent force” in politics and the media. Only one president in the history of the United States has managed to get re-elected after being defeated at the end of his first term: it happened to Grover Cleveland in 1892. Except that Cleveland belonged to the Democratic Party and was a strict observer of the American Constitution.

Biden on Twitter

The president elected remains composed. He still tweeted that of election day. The others are measured, one per day, one topic at a time. Calls for the transition, peaceful, at least to begin. “Anyone who wants a Covid-19 test should be able to get one. Period.”

The “Trump effect” on the coronavirus emergency

The Trump effect on coronavirus: “A very dark winter is looming due to the coronavirus, and many people will die if Donald Trump refuses to cooperate,” the US President-elect Joe Biden said. Biden called for the transition phase to start in his Wilmington, Delaware address after a virtual summit with industry leaders and union representatives. The outgoing president continues to refuse to admit the electoral defeat in the November 3 vote. Coronavirus deaths in the United States are over 247,000, according to Johns Hopkins University tally. Since the start of the pandemic, 247,101 people have died in the country. The infections, in total, are 11,188,766. So far, 4,185,549 people healed. The daily rate of new cases far exceeds 100,000.

“We all agreed that we need to get the economy up and running. We need to get our workers back on track, and that means putting the virus under control,” Biden stressed, warning that the situation “is bound to get worse before it gets better.” On Sunday, according to the Covid Tracking Project, 69,864 people have been admitted to American hospitals, a level much higher than the previous peak of April 15 at 59,940.  In the past week, according to data from Johns Hopkins, an average of 148,725 new coronavirus cases were recorded per day, 31% more than the previous week’s daily average. In the United States, an average of 1,000 people dies from the virus every day, immunologist Anthony Fauci said yesterday.

Many believe that these numbers are the result of Donald Trump’s words. The Italian editorial “L’Espresso” published an in-depth analysis precisely on the disastrous effect of the tycoon words on the COVID 19 emergency. Trump not only publicly underestimated the risks of the virus. But the continuous attacks on China and the criticism of the measures proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO) have fueled conspiracy theories, leading millions of Americans to disregard restrictive measures, or more simply, to ignore protective measures such as facial masks, or social distancing. All of this allowed the virus to spread much faster than in other countries, and the tracing, essential to counter the pandemic, became impossible.

Not happy, Trump could now worsen the scenario by refusing an orderly handover with Biden. However, Americans remain optimistic and hope that the vaccine will soon be available to all, as the current tenant of the White House promised. “The vaccine is important, but it is of little use until you are vaccinated. How can we vaccinate over 300 million Americans? What is the competition plan? It is a huge undertaking to do so. If we wait until January 20 for planning, we stay back over a month while it’s fundamental to plan now, and that there is cooperation,” Biden said.

Pfizer, the pharmaceutical company that announced on November 5 that it had developed a 90 percent effective coronavirus vaccine, has meanwhile announced that it will launch a pilot program of immunization from Covid-19 in the U.S. to help define a national drug distribution and administration plan. The pharmaceutical company selected the states of Rhode Island, Texas, New Mexico, and Tennessee for the pilot program. Due to their marked differences in land area, population, housing density, and immunization infrastructure.
