The photo of Associated Press photographer Ivan Wuchi, taken at Trump’s last press conference at the White House, is without a doubt the most intriguing photograph in the American presidential election. It would be amazing, if it was not nominated for the Pulitzer Prize this time.
The speech or “news conference” of President Trump, who has become a world clown, at the White House on Thursday evening is neither correct nor ethical. After an election, American presidential candidates usually stay away from the White House until the next president is nominated. Trump, who violated all American state traditions during his tenure, eventually broke with that tradition as well.
For 17 minutes he was lying about the legitimacy of the election results. It’s so false that even the Conservative New York Post called them “baseless.” Speaking on the Fox News anchor program, John Roberts said that the president we saw tonight “looks like the election at the end of the day will not be enough to oust him” and that he is trying to plan an “alternative route” to stay in the White House.
“If you count the votes legally, I will easily win,” he said at the beginning of the speech. “If you count illegal votes, you can try to steal our election victory.”
Trump said he had won the state of Pennsylvania, which he had not yet named a winner. After the preliminary results were recorded, the margin of victory in his state was “invalidated”, but the government continued to count postal votes. Biden had the greatest advantage of the postal vote. After all the Tom talk, Trump slipped away from questioning by journalists.
Trump’s statements were as dangerous as they were dishonest. Attempting to undermine the legitimacy of an election while a president is still in power while counting votes is unprecedented in U.S. history. Anderson Cooper of CNN summed it up as follows. “He wants to take everyone, including this country, with him. ”
“This is the lesson that American politics is teaching us that when the ruler goes down, the people must not let the country go down.”
