Dispatch from Washington: It’s over for Donald Trump

1,005FollowersFollow

There is zero path to victory for President Donald Trump. He’s been defeated by President-elect Joe Biden, and there is nothing he can do about it.

On January 20, 2021 at noon, he will no longer be the President of the United States. He will become the former President of this country. That’s just the reality, anything else is just a tweet, some propaganda, a lie.

I, however, also know that it’s hard to change people’s beliefs. When people have an image or idea in their head, facts do not change it. They often engage in conspiracy theories and try to find a justification to believe a lie.

I have come to realize that people are indeed the product of their mindset. If your Facebook friends are people who do not have enough knowledge, understanding or exposure, you cannot gain much from them. You will become just like them. You will believe in fiction and repeat that fiction to your friends. People are indeed saved or damaged by what they expose themselves to. At some point, it’s too late to make them see anything contrary to their beliefs.

For Donald Trump, it’s over, and there’s nothing he can do about it. His silence is his concession speech. His attempt to block Biden from receiving intel briefing or resources for a smooth transition will soon be overcome.

His frivolous lawsuits without merits are being thrown out by the courts. People in his own party are warning him to either grow up or they will step in. The country is focusing on the escalating coronavirus which is accelerating dangerous here, and saying to themselves it was really good we sacked Trump since he does not give a damn about the pandemic or those dying.

While he’s trying, in vain, to overturn the election results, he’s doing nothing to protect Americans from the raging COVID-19. He’s still President for two months and his job is not over yet, but he’s behaving as if he’s no longer in charge.

My only frustration is that people still fall for the lies and cling to their beliefs that there’s still a way he can win. The reality is, he’s lost, and lost forever, nothing can change, nothing can be done.”
