Donald Trump is not opposed to vaccines against covid 19. He even insisted his administration to achieve them in record time, but almost all “deniers” are Trumpists. Why are they opposed to people getting vaccinated? It is an unfathomable mystery. Is it because there is an anti-scientific attitude in Trumpism? It is probable. Almost all Trumpistas deny climate change (and almost all Trumpistas who admit it say that nothing you do can prevent it). Maybe because there is a wrong concept of individualism? Well yes: I have no idea how you come to the conclusion that owning an AK 47 makes bipeds closer to individualism, but most Trumpists invoke the Second Amendment.
I believe in the freedom for all adults to make their cape a robe, but provided they do not compromise other human beings in their decision. Same-sex marriage, or the right to use one’s own body – pregnancies, abortions, prostitution, drugs, alcohol and other stupid things – seems admissible to me, but not getting vaccinated can be lethal, among others, for seniors. Society, through the State, has every right to make the vaccination compulsory. In the same way that practically no one in their right mind objects to placing limits on the speed at which cars travel on the roads, it should be inescapable to be inoculated against covid-19.
CNN commissioned a poll of Trump’s leadership of Republicans and found that a majority prefer him as a candidate in 2022. 51% want him on the ballot versus 49% who want a less vulnerable face. I suspect that the communication company would have preferred a much less positive response for the former president, but the fact that he publishes his finding says a lot about his commitment to the truth. (Incidentally, since in journalism in the United States it is important to reveal all the information: I work for CNN en Español).
I don’t think Donald Trump is the Republican candidate. He will be 78 or 79 when it comes time to rule. How old is Joe Biden today. At 75 years old, as Mexicans say, the “old man” is given. Three years ago, from that moment, everything happened to me. After all, Catholic bishops resign from their posts at age 75. And the cardinals stop electing the pope at 80. I do not believe that in 2022 Biden will be the candidate of the Democrats either. It will encourage a new candidate for the primaries to come forward. Maybe it’s Kamala Harris. Or maybe someone different, like Sen. Amy Klobuchar, if the current VP is not doing well in the polls. Even be Gavin Newsom, governor of California and commander of the National Guard, who just won a recall referendum against the most stale Trumpism. Almost double the Republican vote. California is not only the most populous state in the nation – the country is becoming more and more like that state.
After the next elections to elect the entire Chamber and a third of the Senate, the great and true dispute will begin. By that date, the accusation against Trump for tax evasion will be ready, and – what is more serious – for trying to carry out a coup on January 6, 2021, as assured by Gina Haspel, director of the CIA at that time. turbulent, as if the United States were a banana republic. Fortunately, Mike Pence, the vice president, former governor of Indiana, refused the outrage that Donald Trump irresponsibly asked of him and that would have precipitated the country into a civil war. Pence certified what had happened: Joe Biden won the electoral vote (306 by 232). In addition, he gained a 7 million vote advantage in the race. As a journalist, I have met countless people who due to laziness or negligence have not exercised their right to vote, but I have never come across one of those millions of foreigners who vote for the Democrats without having the right to do so, as Trump and Trump often accuse. the trumpistas. I insist on the final adverb: Never.
This was confirmed in the exhaustive analysis that was carried out in Maricopa, Arizona, of the elections between Trump and Biden. According to Trump, he had won by miles of votes in Arizona, which would be reflected in the count of Maricopa, the second district of that State by voters. But in the recount Biden got 99 more votes than in the original count. Trump went for wool and got shorn.
