This has happened in America before; just in Latin America.
It was beginning to seem that diverting attention from mass protests in the United States to anything else right now was impossible. However, Donald Trump’s main rival in the 2020 presidential election, the so-called Democrat Joe Biden, has succeeded.
If Trump loses the election in November and refuses to leave, then military personnel “will escort him from the White House with great dispatch,” Biden said in an interview with CNN. In the U.S. military, he noted, many are coming out against the president.
In other words, the “Democratic” candidate made a thinly veiled threat to use a military coup to oust his Republican opponent. Trump responded in his usual manner:
“If I don’t win, I don’t win. We’ll go on and do other things,” the tycoon promised.
It must be said that until recently, there was a rich tradition of military coups in America — in Latin America, in the countries to the south of the U.S., countries for which it is politically correct to refer to them as “banana republics.”
However, according to Yaroslav Levin, an America specialist and Ph.D. student in historical science, such antics are not worth special attention.
“I would not take his words seriously. At one time, Trump promised to 'put Hillary Clinton in jail,’ and threatened Kim Jong Un with 'fire and fury’ (essentially a missile strike) during the period of conflict between the DPRK and the USA. But, as we now see, the rhetoric is all that remains,” Levin said.
As for Biden, he has reached an advanced age (he is 77 years old), and rumors are circulating that all is not well with him mentally. He constantly makes all kinds of gaffes which embarrass members of his party. For example, he recently stated that black people who vote for Trump “ain’t black.” Indeed, all this is beyond the mark, but similar attacks on opponents have become routine for incumbent “Democrats.” They have still not recovered from their defeat in the 2016 election and fear a similar fate this year. So, pardon my language if it’s too harsh.
