  • Trump could say that he is not leaving, he is not conceding.However, according the Twentieth Amendement to the Constitution, the candidate with the most electoral votes (Biden, 306-Trump, 232) becomes president at 12:00 p.m. on january 20. The current president's term is therefore over on that day, just before noon. And all of the allegiance of the government, of the military, of the civil service, switches to Joe Biden, the winner of the November 3 election, and Donald Trump will become a private citizen, regardless of anything Donald Trump does.

  • It beggars belief that the USA elects any man to the office of President and allows the holder of that office such sweeping and total powers treating him as if he becomes like a Pope with all knowledge on any matters and who must be obeyed in all things. It has been proven under Trump that a determined POTUS can indeed ignore any imagined barriers to his being above the law and consittution and can go against the knowledge of people such as health or security experts. Wake up America you give far too much power to a POTUS and make him like a DICATOR if he chooses to be that. Your Republic is sadly on the edge of a cliff at this moment in time with the current dimwit still in charge until at least 20th January 2021

Trust with confidence and understanding that Jesus removed ALL of your sins when He died and rose. Simple! If you need some teaching on the matter, the bible teaching site, teachingfaith com is a good source of info. All their content is free in ebooks and streaming videos. The teaching series titled, 'change of mind' has all the basics...

  • Regardless how anyone feels about our troops in these areas the point is that a major policy decision shouldn't be unilaterally made by a lame duck president. Unfortunately Mitch wasn't worried about that when he rushed through Trump's supreme court candidate with closed door hearings literally the week before the election that as predicted Trump lost. Credibility is something that's earned by being consistent.
