Trump's tweets are designed to enrage his followers and this is not the first time he incited them to do stupid things from his tweets

I've always worried a lot more about what Trump does than what he tweets. While I expect some unrest from Trump's followers I don't think it will be all that much. Would I prefer Trump didn't rile people up with his tweets? Absolutely. Do I think it will be a big crisis for the country? No.

Trump refusing to step aside would be a much bigger issue. Would probably result in Biden ordering his arrest on January 22nd, which would be a flashpoint in this country's history.

My point is that Trump is obviously creating a toxic environment allowing for the opportunity to destabilise the transition that he himself authorised.

I doubt that anything Trump or his zombie kool-aid drinking cult does, will come anywhere close to matching the level of hype predicting what they will do.

He has already addressed the "coup" nonsense.
He said he will allow the transition. 8)

Next drama! :mrgreen:

I would be staggered if the Republicans act as badly as the democrats did, when Trump won.
But if it happens, I will change my view, simples. 8)

The White House gets a complete renovation with each new incoming adminsitration. Campare images of Bush White House decor to Obama White House decor.

Yeah but she vandalised the garden for starters which contained historically important trees/plants
https://www.dezeen.com/2020/08/24/melan ... criticism/

Who knows what she did inside.


In your opinion.
Someone said she made the garden disability friendly, which is the type of thing she would do, imo. 8)

He also said he would leave office, if the electoral college votes in Biden. https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/26/politics ... index.html

This is in line with my predictions that he would tweet and sling mud, issue legal challenges etc. but will peaceably step aside when the time comes.


There was never any doubt, in my mind, that this was going to happen. 8)

With one hand he (Trump) authorises transition and concedes defeat
https://www.business-standard.com/artic ... 125_1.html

But with the other hand he keeps posting defiant lies about fraud on twitter. And now he's even appearing on TV apparently forgetting he conceded and lost the election
https://www.dw.com/en/donald-trump-refu ... a-55766431

An now he has engaged the angel of satan the dubious QAnon lawyer L Lin Wood to muck rake the election result in Georgia
https://www.news.com.au/world/north-ame ... a814495c91

It's funny wherever some case has the whiff of race or politics and involves scraping the bottom of the barrell L Lin Wood is there to defend. Not surprising though given his association with the far right QAnon group.

It seems likely that he will claim fraud and muckrake for a very long time to come, in retaliation for all that was said and done against him.

Perhaps. But many will doubtlessly still plot to kidnap or assassinate elected Democrat leaders.
