America being a bald eagle, the leader in many fronts, she has always been envied by many countries most especially in its democracy and leadership style.
However, recent events following a dramatic election contested by Donald Trump and President-elect Joe Biden has made many wonder if the superpower is quickly turning into a third world country.
This will be one of the greatest litmus test of democratic ideals of our times in a country the world holds as an epitome of democratic ideals and governance.
President Donald Trump message on Twitter on Tuesday was razor-sharp and disturbing having fired top cyber security official accusing Chris Krebs without evidence of making a “highly inaccurate” statement affirming the November 3, 2020 election was secure and rejecting claims of fraud.
Krebs was not given notice of Trump’s plan to fire him, according to a person familiar with the matter, and learned of the decision through Twitter.
Trump has made allegations that the election was “rigged” and has refused to concede defeat to President-elect Joe Biden.
His campaign has filed a law suits in battleground states, although election officials in both parties have said they see no evidence of serious irregularities
On Friday, a judge in Michigan issued another rejection of Republican claims of fraud.
His supporters rallied in Washington on Saturday to push the theory that fraud denied him rightful victory in the election, though the protest turnout was uncertain as further results cemented the president’s defeat.
Right-wing militia groups such as the Proud Boys also planned to hold rallies, prompting a large security presence in the capital to prevent clashes with separate anti-Trump events that were scheduled outside the Supreme Court.
