Could Trump Form a Permanent Opposition of 71 Million Voters Who Believe he Won?
We begin with more evidence that not only will Trump not concede the presidency to Joe Biden, but that in firing his Secretary of Defense today, he is signaling that he’s in charge and not going anywhere. Lincoln Mitchell, a Professor of Political Science at Columbia University who is an associate scholar in the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies and an expert on the former Soviet states, joins us to discuss the possibility that Trump will mobilize the 71 million Americans who voted for him in what many of them believe is an election their leader won, to be a permanent opposition block against Biden until 2024 when Trump will run again to resume his rightful place in the Oval Office. With senior Republicans like Mitch McConnell going along with Trump’s bogus claims, we assess the likelihood that more credible adults will emerge as George W. Bush has, to convince enough Republicans that Trump has lost and it’s time to move on.
