The Democratic leaders in Wilmington are dismayed to respond to Trump’s statements. They insist that “the race is not over yet” and hope that there will be a turnaround in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Georgia. Five million votes have been cast in those states, and Democrats are still hoping that Joe Biden will be the next president. Member of Parliament Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls Trump’s claim “illegal, dangerous and authoritarian.”
Van de Weghe speaks of “a nightmare scenario that was predicted” and can lead to street violence. It is not without reason that many stores in large American states have screened their windows with wooden panels.
