With Joe Biden travelling to Kenosha and the novel coronavirus taking a backseat in the campaign trail last week, it felt like something good may be in store for Trump.
But, turns out, Trump had to experience a lot of trouble. With less than two months left for the election, it’s not looking good for the President.
What Do The Polls Say?
Lately, almost every poll online is showing that Biden will lead the elections both at the national level and in the major states. All these polls came into being after the convention of the Republics.
The President did not help improve the situation by asking his voters to vote for him multiple times. Thus, he urges his voters to support him by committing fraud.
Massive Blow For Trump
Last Thursday, the editor-in-chief of ‘The Atlantic’, Jeffrey Goldberg, writes an article on how Trump has belittled the dead and wounded American war veterans. The Atlantic article, titled “Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’”, also throws light on how Trump had asked for the wounded veterans to be kept out of military parades.
Trump and his White House have denied the accusations. But can we accept their denial?
Trump and his campaign have spent days and months into trying to change the entire rhetoric for the 2020 elections.
It does not look like they have succeeded in that front, does it?
What Is Preventing Us From Believing Trump’s Denial?
We are skeptical of Trump’s denial because he has said some similar things in the past.
The President has given the following comment on late Sen. John McCain in 2015, “He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”
Then, for late Sgt. La David Johnson, Trump has stated that he “must have known what he signed up for,”. This was revealed by Rep. Frederica Wilson, who did overhear Trump’s conversation with Johnson’s widow.
Trump has also commented on the Khan family, saying that he saw him at the Democratic convention of 2016. He states that Khan was looking very emotional. But his wife, who was also standing nearby, did not say anything.
According to Trump, Khan’s wife did not have the liberty to say anything.
Again, for the former Defense Secretary, James Mattis, Trump tweeted, “Probably the only thing Barack Obama and I have in common is that we both had the honour of firing Jim Mattis, the world’s most overrated general”.
All these previous statements given by the President does not seem to validate his denials. Even if he did not say it, he has said pretty terrible things about the late war veterans.
