Democrats Claim 2020 will be
Second Presidential Election in a Row
Where Trump Simply Won’t Accept That He Lost
WASHINGTON, D.C. – In an article on Sunday, the New York Times questioned whether President Trump would accept
the election results if he lost the 2020 presidential election. This follows similar stories from ABC, CNN, Newsweek,
Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, Politico, Vox, Sky News, and The Guardian.
Many mainstream Democrats have joined these news outlets, sharing the concern that Trump might deny reality when he
loses the 2020 Presidential election.
Just like, they say, he denied reality when he lost in 2016.
“Hillary won the 2016 election”, a DNC spokesperson stated emphatically. “That’s just the reality. Trump is in
denial of that fact. And we’re afraid he’ll do the same thing in 2020.”
Many Democratic politicians and media members share a laser-like focus on how Trump simply refuses to accept fact.
For example, they were flabbergasted how Trump simply ignored that Hillary won the popular vote.
After Trump’s inauguration, New York Times columnist Lindy West saw how in-denial Trump was, and wrote, “Mr. Trump
isn’t my president. I don’t mean it emotionally; I mean it literally. It’s not sloganeering; it’s observable truth.”
Congressman Ted Lieu said, “We may have an illegitimate president of the United States currently occupying the White House.”
Nancy Pelosi also called Trump an “illegitimate President” and an “imposter”.
“When we Democrats saw how Trump refused to accept his loss, we protested in numerous ways,” said the DNC spokesperson.
“Democratic voters from all across the country formed a ‘Not My President’ movement. Many Democratic members of Congress
tried to delay the Electoral College process, challenged the certification of the Electoral votes, boycotted his
inauguration, and have refused to work with him. We've also spent his entire first term investigating him.”
“All because Trump kept refusing to accept that he lost the 2016 election.”
Recently, Pelosi also told reporters that she does not trust the president to respect the results of the
2020 election either, and is concerned that Mr. Trump would not give up power voluntarily if he lost re-election by a slim margin.
John Podesta, co-chair of former President Barack Obama’s 2008 transition team, recently expressed the same idea.
As did Congressmen Ted Lieu and Brendan Boyle.
The DNC spokesperson summarized the Democrats’ concern, saying, “Trump’s still in denial about losing in 2016, so he’ll
likely also deny losing in 2020.”
