The American president chained large gatherings at a frantic pace with 8 days before the poll. And too bad for the health risks associated with the pandemic.
It’s the last straight line. Just 8 days before the November 3 election, Donald Trump is launching his last forces into the battle in the hope of defeating the polls giving victory to his Democratic rival Joe Biden. And to try to thwart the forecasts, the billionaire has finally returned to his victorious formula of 2016: to increase the meetings in all the key states, to address his supporters without filter. An exercise he has always loved.
In this game, Donald Trump does not spare his efforts. The US president has been traveling at a frantic pace in recent days, going so far as to hold three meetings last Saturday: first in North Carolina, then in Ohio and finally in Wisconsin. However, it is difficult to forget that after its first post-containment rally in Tulsa last June, a peak of contamination had been observed locally. The health authorities then stressed that it was “more than likely” that large gatherings contributed to it. If in the process the tenant of the White House had momentarily reduced the sails, the time is no longer to half-measure.
