It is a strong blow to climate agreements, with a return to random drilling, but also a strong blow against political opponents and street demonstrations. Donald Trump He asked his allies in Congress to publicly confront criticism regarding the possibility that the former president would rule as a “dictator” if re-elected to the White House (polls continue to show him as the favorite).
The controversy arises from A television interview conducted by Donald with Hannity on Fox NewsA few days ago, the criticism directed at him was renewed. In response to a question on the topic “I will be a dictator for a day,” the interviewer asked if he would “abuse power to retaliate against anyone,” to which Trump replied: “Except the first day,” before talking about reviving oil exploration and closing oil deposits. the border.
These messages highlight Trump’s adherence to authoritarian rhetoric and ideas. The Washington Post reported last month that Trump’s aides were developing plans to invoke the Insurrection Act on his first day in office, allowing him to deploy the military against potential street demonstrations.
Although Trump’s staff dismisses such concerns, some experts and lawmakers (including from his own party) view the former president’s continued adherence to authoritarian ideas with concern. More recently, Trump has said he views his persecution as a license to use the Justice Department and the FBI against his opponents, and has continued to falsely claim that the 2020 election was “stolen” from him.
Donald’s crew is trying to add water to the fire about his authoritarian turn, also because they expect the issue to be Biden’s main line of attack. But Trump’s answers on Fox News raised more questions about the future of a Republican-led United States.
According to Senator Mitt Romney, Trump’s base appreciates his tough stance and desire for revenge. Meanwhile, Biden’s staff has highlighted Trump’s recent statements and his tendency to attack political opponents, calling them “worms.”
The future of Trump’s campaign and concerns about his ability to govern have increasingly become a topic of debate, with mixed reactions even among Republicans in Congress. While some downplay the importance of Donald’s statements, others view with concern the possibility of a more extreme and authoritarian approach in his second term. It is an approach that threatens to further destabilize the United States, which is now suffering from deep internal division.
