Donald Trump persistently refuses to admit his defeat to Joe Biden – at least publicly. The plans for the next election are already running in the background.
Donald Trump lost the election to Joe Biden. Even if he has not officially admitted this, Trump already seems to be preparing to run for the next US election in 2024.
This is indicated by an e-mail survey launched by the Trump team. Under the – false – headline that the “radical left” stole the election of President Trump, Trump supporters are asked: “Do you think that President Trump should run for president in 2024?”
The mail, which has been circulating on social networks since Wednesday, also poses a problem for Trump: According to the constitution, a US president can only serve two terms in office. So if Trump prepares for another candidacy in 2024, he will indirectly admit that he lost the 2020 election.
Wild accusations without any evidence
So far, however, Trump has strictly avoided admitting his defeat to Biden. He has lost almost 60 lawsuits against the election result, but keeps adding up. At last he suspected – without presenting any evidence – the voting machines would have given Biden two to three percent of the vote.
Trump was also not at all pleased that Senate leader Mitch McConnell, Biden finally congratulated him on his election victory. “It’s too early to give up,” tweeted Trump.
Ultimately, however, the choice is made. In the 50 US states and the capital district of Washington, the 538 voters on Monday cast their votes for the future president on behalf of the people. As expected, Biden got the votes of 306 voters, 36 more than are necessary for victory. 232 electorates voted for Trump.
