Trump feels nervous apprehension about the election. He has aptly been compared to an animal that is all the more dangerous when cornered.
Not one whose decisions are subject to Constitutional or ethical considerations, Trump is determined to win even if he loses. Covid-19 virus constraints will impede the electoral process. Trump and his allies will do make everything they can to suppress voting and make the election as chaotic as possible. In the event of adverse results at the polls, expect Trump’s allies, aided by Trump’s authoritarian-minded Attorney General, William Barr, to file lawsuits and launch a propaganda campaign of unprecedented intensity. Trump is not alone in feeling nervous apprehension. Nearly everyone I know is too.
