Trump Tweet Cast A Shadow Over American Democracy

Donald Trump sent out a tweet that sent shockwaves around the United States, casting a shadow over the upcoming election in November and threatening the survival of democracy.

On Thursday, President Trump tweeted that he’s considering delaying the upcoming presidential election in November, a race which he is losing, very badly, to Democratic would-be nominee Joe Biden by almost double figures in the RCP national average of polls.

Trump has already hinted that he could dispute the results, like he did weeks before the 2016 election victory over Hillary Clinton, and his tweet has stirred up a storm among his political opponents, who haven’t hesitated to call him a fascist.

The writing does appear to be on the wall for Trump, with protests against racism taking over several major cities throughout the country, which has prompted Trump to deploy Federal officers in military gear and unmarked vehicles to arrest protesters. The US also has by far the most COVID-19 cases and deaths in the world, with one person dying every minute now. Furthermore, having spent the majority of his term in office boasting about his prowess with regards to handling the US economy, America has been teetering on the verge of an economic collapse akin to the Great Depression for months. A loss of a third of their GDP output is the biggest economic downturn in history for the country, and Trump has nowhere to hide.

And, ironically, Trump’s remaining supporters are using video footage of what America looks like today to show people about what a “scary place” the United States would be if Biden is in charge.

Calling Trump a fascist is an overused trope that isn’t entirely grounded in reality, which this writer is not a fan of using. But with militia in civilian clothing arresting protesters, with Trump contemplating delays of the elections and with a immovable support base that is prepared to abandon reason in support of a cult-of-personality figure, the blueprint has been created for a genuine fascist state to take over the world’s greatest democracy.
