The President of the USA, Donald Trump, hinted at his fear of losing on November 3 by stressing, for the second time in a week, how embarrassed he would be if Democratic candidate Joe Biden defeated him.
Beginning a three-day tour of six key states in the election, Trump acknowledged that feels a lot of “pressure” to win the election, at a time when polls give Biden an advantage of about 10 points nationally.
Worry and grief
“How can you lose to a guy like this?” Trump asked during a rally in Greenville, in the key North Carolina state, after describing his rival as the presidential “worst candidate” of the country’s history.
“If I lose, I have a lot more pressure. I would like it to be good, so I would have less pressure. This Tuesday, during another rally in Pennsylvania, Trump also gloated over the idea of lose to biden, by ensuring that “never” would step on that key state again if that happens.
The president has recently contacted some of his allies privately to confess that he is afraid of losing and in particular, losing to Biden, whom he does not respect, as revealed this month by The New York Times.
Far below the polls
Surveys show a bleak outlook for Trump, who trails Biden in the three states that gave him the keys to the White House in 2016 – Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin – and tied for other territories he comfortably won four years ago, like Ohio and Arizona.
Eager to take mass baths after overcome covid-19Trump has scheduled a tour of North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, Michigan and Wisconsin between this Thursday and Saturday. The president on Thursday minimized the polls that show him lagging behind and assured that he has an advantage “in all the places where people are intelligent.”
Bad relationship with the press
Hours before starring in a televised meeting with voters organized by the cadena NBC News, Trump lashed out at that channel and insinuated that he only accepted the invitation to participate with the aim of complaining after how badly they had treated him.
“They have handed us a trap for tonight. If you want to entertain yourself a little, you can watch it, “said the president during the rally.
Trump assured that NBC is “the worst”, sarcastically defined as “charming” the presenter of the event, Savannah Guthrie, and affirmed that she only agreed to participate because she wants to “see how they treat her” compared to Biden, who led a similar event. on the same chain this month. “(When they offered it to me) I thought: what the hell, they give us a free hour of tv“Trump commented.
The NBC network has received criticism for scheduling Trump’s act at the same time as another meeting with voters that Biden will star in the ABC stringBut it has defended itself by stating that it is trying to be “fair” and give both candidates the same opportunity.
