Time Trump's twitter message about the election was hardly a coincidence. He has always understood tryllekunstnernes main method: Move the attention so cheated overlooked. This day was the need for the derivation of acute. Fresh economic reports showed the biggest quarterly fall (9.5 per cent) in gross domestic product (GDP) since the stock market crash in 1929. A fight from the battle for civil rights for african-merikanere, John Lewis, was buried with two past presidents present (Clinton and Bush jr.). The figures from the koronaens dødsmarker had just passed 150 000. And Joe Biden led the superior of all the polls.Turn On the LydErrorAllerede plus customer?

In such situation it is an old political trick to throw into the issues affecting the media's attention and priorities. Here succeeded Trump just måtelig. First and foremost, because he neither has the authority or legal basis to postpone the election. The u.s. constitution and federal laws have clear regulations about when the presidential elections should be conducted, and when a possible shift in power to happen. Even in the obedient and kuede republican party took president little support. To challenge the constitution is an act of american politicians will avoid.
With such a backdrop can we write off Trump's statements as one of many without much consequence. He scatters the new rumblings out of the sleeve as a talented falskspiller. Nevertheless, it may be worthwhile to consider some other possible explanations.
The most serious is that Trump in the longer time has sown doubt about whether he will respect the outcome of the election, and resign if he loses. In the twitter message he reaffirms the claim that preferences will lead to widespread electoral fraud. At a press conference on the night of Friday (English time) elaborated on this and warned that it is almost certain that such a choice will not be legitimate, and can be omstøtt after three months.
Together with other initiatives are pointing this towards a strategy that will undermine the selection of credibility and legitimacy. If it is button or unclear margin between the Trump and Biden, occurs opportunities to "steal" or discredit the election. The legal processes of elections in single states can influence the result. It was what happened when the United states supreme court in 2000 had to decide whether Al Gore or George W. Bush won the election in Florida, and thus became America's next president.
There are a number of disturbing features of Donald Trumps actions and statements the last time. The use of paramilitary forces against protesters in Portland, Oregon is one of them. The president is trying continuously to create the impression that there is a rebellion against the government led by anarchists and other extreme activists of the venstrefløyen. He has also used clean military forces in commemoration of this fictional father.
most likely is the explanation of all these maneuvers is the need to camouflage a likely defeat in the upcoming election. Trump stamps already now an option with the poststemmer as fraud. It lays the basis for claiming that a defeat in the reality is due to a conspiracy aimed against the incumbent president. Such a construction matches completely with a basic feature of Trump: write off any responsibility for what goes wrong. Give others the blame.Yes, he is dangerous Comment
If Donald Trump withdraws, shrouded in conspiracy and self-pity, it can create a problematic political legacy. Trump has particularly appealed to americans who have a very, very negative, often hateful, relationship with the federal branch of government and the politicians in Washington. A conspiracy theory related to the Trumps fall, will find fertile breeding ground in these groups.
The deep rift in the american people that Trump has done everything to enhance, therefore will not disappear. The chasm will widen, either Donald Trump wins the election or not.the Threats are specific and disquieting Leader You can submit your article and opinion piece in Dagbladet here
