Welcome to Trump town

The US population is somewhere around 330 million, the Corona virus death toll is somewhere about 200 thousand.

Even if those 200 thousand were Americans with the very highest of IQs, that out of the currently surviving population Biden could be regarded as the best possible hope against Trump seems ... woefully disappointing - but even that doesn’t say even close to enough.

I hope Biden is in some way eventually found to be at least somewhat demented, because if how he is, is how indeed how he has always been, then that only makes my above paragraph even more depressing.

If I were Trump I wouldn’t be paying for a concession speech, if I were Biden, I’d already have it written.

I have seen some of Biden's um, highlights??, not sure whether to laugh or cry really, I really think Donald Trump will wipe the floor with him, despite all of his flaws.

Which means that the US is screwed. Because Donald Trump and his Administration is the most inept, incompetent admin in US history.

I don't like Biden, but I hope he wins, for minorities people's sake. Then he will be too ill and Kamala Harris, a woman of colour will take the helm. Not my first choice (Turner, Bass or Abrams would be better) but she is 30 times a president Trump will ever be on his very best day.

The upcoming election really is Hobson's Choice. As Don wrote recently, at least Trump hasn't started a war.

I was talking to a friend that lives in Seattle overnight, she is pretty sure that the dems know they cannot beat Trump so they’re effectively conceding the coming election, and running Biden so as to not ‘damage’ a better candidate for next election. Same case for Harris, she is just a sacrificial lamb to try and garner some support from as many minorities as possible.

Likewise even for Trump, the reps could replace him with someone ‘better’ but why? He will win the election anyway, they’ll still be in position to govern so save a higher quality candidate for when there’s a fight that matters.

Then that shows you what a racist, corrupt effed up country the US is. Really Donald Trump the most incompetent, thin skinned, childish ever and his is going to win.

It just shows that race plays a massive part in US Politics. By the way I am no fan of Biden either.

He hasn't started a war, but by pulling US troops out of Northern Syria to appease Erdogan, he has left the Kurds to certain slaughter.

The Dems are focusing on the House and Senate - not just for this election but also for 2022. They must be raking in the donations every time Trump opens his mouth.

Best strategy for Republicans is to wait until after Trump wins the one horse election and then either use the 2nd Amendment before the electoral votes are counted or the 25th Amendment if they wait until after the inauguration.

Apart from walking into a second term, Trump may push for a further 4 more years in 2024 and be a President 4 Life, changing the constitution in the process. Why not borrow from the Putin and Xi playbook?

If Trump attempted to become President for Life, I suspect he would rapidly join the ranks of past presidents like Lincoln, Kennedy et al.

Trump must have a spectacularly brilliant tax accountant if nothing was illegal:

Without a doubt it makes a mockery of tax systems that see the ultra wealthy pay less tax than many of those who earn a minimum wage.

One would hope that those people realise what their taxes go to. Say goodbye to many of the country's roads and railways, hospitals, income support and plenty of other things.

Yeah, fat chance.

No he's not - in fact he did something really brilliant last week that went completely un-noticed by his critics (as usual). Instead of shutting Tic Toc down in the United States he forced the Chinese government to allow an American onto the board and got them to sell a percentage of the company to Cisco. The Chinese folded and Trump won but nobody cares because it's Trump.

Lets break it down a bit more:

Some of Tik Toks server side got sold to a American company (Oracle) with a very pro Trump CEO and Bytedance, the parent company of Tik Tok still owns over 60% of the company.

He only got mad at it since he cant control the narrative on the platform, not for security reasons.

Alright I got part of the story wrong - but if it was Obama that did it they would have been hailing him as a new-age genius and 'strong on China' (which he never was).

And you're deducing that he did it for commercial and not security reasons - there's no evidence for that.

There was nothing to suggest that the servers Tik Tok already had based in the US were doing anything nefarious, hell they had employees based in the US to handle things.

Trump also kept referring to "getting a cut" constantly when Tik Tok getting sold came up.
  Carnot Minister for Railways

There are several reasons why no device in our house has Tik Tok.  And it's not just because of the Chinese Govt.
