Post Election Update.
This has most certainly been one of the most memorable elections in all of US history.
From the build up by both Joe Biden and Donald Trump’s campaigns, to the actual election night that has now become, several, election nights.
As of where things stand right now, Biden’s 264 leads Trump’s 214 in electoral votes by a large margin, while also leading in popular votes 50 percent to 48 percent.
With a few key battleground states still counting ballots, all signs are pointing to Joe Biden becoming the 46th president of the US.I think this is exactly what the American people need: a competent president of the United States.
Over the course of the past four years, Donald Trump has put this country in absolute turmoil. From the lies, lack of leadership and handling of a pandemic that is still raging throughout the country, he proved how unfit he was to be a leader.
Never mind the fact that Trump has virtually no political experience whatsoever compared to Biden’s 47 years and it all makes sense: his downfall was always inevitable.
Trump spent the majority of his presidency insulting peers, rivals and just about anybody that opposed him. He fired long-time employees of the white house for disagreeing with him and only hired people that simply would not oppose him. It is safe to say his presidency was a disaster, seen by everyone except his cult of followers.
When it comes to the coronavirus pandemic, a leader could not have handled it any worse.
In January of this year, Trump is on record calling it very deadly, how it can spread rapidly to people of all ages and how it is deadlier than a common flu. Yet he kept all of this a secret from the American people for months.
In March of 2020 when the first cases of the coronavirus were recorded in the US, Trump egregiously downplayed its severity and pretty much said all the opposite of what he is on record saying in January.
Fast forward to the present day, and Trump has let 235 thousand Americans die, while nearly ten million Americans have caught the virus.
If that is not a complete lack of leadership and trust, then I do not know what is.
To make matters worse, his supporters, who act more like a cult following than regular republican supporters, believe any and everything that he says.
They believe the virus is a hoax, just like their supposed leader. Not practicing social distancing, not wearing masks and also mocking people that do.
He continued to have massive rallies, which are basically super-spreader events, and has simply handled the pandemic about as awful as anybody could.
Under a Biden-Harris administration, I truly do believe there is hope that the country can recover from the coronavirus, while also taking huge steps forward in the fight for social justice.
Another four years of Trump would be another four years of disaster.
