Why Trump won’t resign

June 29, 2020

Another excellent effort by Robert A. Vella. Since I doubt Trump would voluntarily leave office if defeated in November, it seems obvious that Trump would never abandon his post before such a defeat could take place. He has only been emboldened by the fake impeachment trial in the Senate which refused to even question witnesses let alone convict and remove him from office.

President Trump’s consistent authoritarian streak needs to be reigned in and confront in order to defeat him in November and mitigate the damage he is able to wreak between now and the end of his term. Expecting him to change his words and deeds at this late date is a waste of time and effort better spent ensuring his electoral defeat and planning policies to undo the damage he has already caused due to his economic, health care, immigration and Covid-19 mismanagement. He’s not the only one who needs to go. His Congressional enablers and most of his cabinet and other appointees will rightfully join him in leaving government “service” if you can call what they have been doing serving the public. Strengthening democracy in this country demands it. – rjc

Today, after a staggering level of political corruption and calamities wreaked upon this nation…
