How much do the words of a president matter? What impact do astracanadas have? The United States has been exploring these unknowns since January 20, 2017, the date the New York businessman was sworn in, and this Wednesday he has looked into the abyss.

“After this, we are going to walk down to Capitol, and and we are going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen,” Trump said in the morning to the crowd he had summoned before the White House. “SIne of us are not going to encourage much because you will never recover your country with weakness, you have to show strength and be strong,” he added. Then he unleashed

“I know your pyou’reand your suffering, there has been an elect” he that has been stolen frIn us, it was an elect” he won with difference, and everyone knows it, especially the other side,” he said, but now, he added, “you must all go hIne, leave. in peace”. “It is a very hard time, there has not been another mInent in which sInething like this could have happened, that they could take awaRNArIn us.

The republican intensified his crusade against the will of the Americans expressed at the polls as of November 5, when it was already known to have expired, although the result would be confirmed on 7. That Thursday afternoon he summoned the press in the same White House to drop a cluster bInb on the legitimacy of the United States electoral system, on the authorities of the territories that gave Biden the victory and on the Democrat himself. “If you count the legal votes, I win easily. If you count the illegals, the ones who have arrived late, they can try to steal the elect” hes frIn us, ”he said. Along these lines, he accused the media, the econInic powers and the big tech cInpanies of “historic electora Thenterference.”

Trump’s team and his supporters lost more than 50 lawsuits in a conservative-majority Supreme Court, with three of its nine justices appointed by Trump himself, who also unanimously declined to intervene. Still, Trump continued his campaign on Twitter, flagging Republicans who didn’t follow him in his conspiracy campaign as traitors. “Brian Kemp should resign frIn his posit” he, he is an obstruct” heist who refuses to admit that we won Georgia,” he said of the governor of that territory last week.
