It is now almost 20 days since Donald Trump lost the Presidential election. As of today, Joe Biden has 306 electoral votes and almost 80 million of the popular vote. Thursday evening, Georgia turned blue, proclaiming Joe Biden as the winner. With all the facts starring him in the face, Donald Trump refuses to concede the election. He is also refusing to begin the transition of power to President-Elect Joe Biden.
Trump secludes himself in the White House instead of addressing more than 250,000 Coronavirus deaths. He pouts in the Oval Office instead of addressing the economic crisis. Like a petulant child, Trump refuses to acknowledge the loss and show dignity in defeat. Blocking President-Elect Biden and his transition team is peak narcissism. Some would argue this latest tantrum from the President is the perfect end to a year, unlike any other. How many times have we watched in disbelief at Trump’s tantrums and said, “This can’t be real life?”
There is also the threat to our national security. By blocking President-Elect Biden, important intelligence information about our nation’s safety and security is out of Biden’s reach. Does this make us more vulnerable in the eyes of our nation’s enemies? Donald Trump has placed his own ego above the safety and security of every American.
The Presidential Transition Act of 1963 allows the General Services Administration (GSA) to provide the incoming President with offices, equipment, and background checks for security clearance. It will enable the President-Elect and current President to begin the transfer of information. As of now, none of this is in process. The GSA will not recognize Biden as the President-Elect. Currently headed by Trump Appointee, Emily Murphy, she refuses to acknowledge his win. The GSA should be a bi-partisan office but has chosen party over the people.
Trump is wasting the American people’s time, and its’ dangerous. American’s are dying, businesses are collapsing, and people’s hope and income are shrinking. Trump is killing us, our businesses, livelihoods, and quality of life.
It is time for Trump to concede, then leave.
