Donald Trump has now in a way admitted that the fight is over. On Monday, he agreed that Joe Biden and his people could begin preparing for the takeover.
“Do what needs to be done,” as he wrote on Twitter.

The news feeds went hot. It was almost as if the masses took to the streets in joy, as if a tyrant had been cast out. He has admitted defeat! He has admitted defeat!
No, he did not.
But on the night of Friday our time, he took another step towards the front door. The label “loser”, which he has stuck to everyone around him for 40 years, hurts to the point that it is impossible for him to accept.
He is still keeping the door ajar for the voters to turn around on 14 December. But he has been legally rejected, even by conservative judges. The results in Georgia, Michigan and Pennsylvania are official. Everything talked about Trump’s coup can now be settled. It can rather be replaced with real fear of what the injured animal Trump can do in the last couple of months on his White House watch. Because there is a lot. The legacy of Trump is a ticking bomb.
It can go off before or after January 20 next year. When Trump has to leave Washington.

Many have talked about Trump’s lack of direction and real strategy. I myself have often been relieved that he did not really want that much along the way. He is lazy, can not read papers, rather plays golf. Without puppet master Steve Bannon, Trump’s backer, facilitator and first adviser, the president has wandered around on his own.
More comical than dangerous.
Maybe he did not quite know where he was going, but he wanted to break down. This has been the strategy he inherited from Bannon. And now, after more than three weeks of denying the facts, undemocratically undermining what is arguably the safest American election ever, one sees it so clearly.
Fake news allegations. The attacks on the media.

He prepared the ground already four years ago. If you break down trust in the media, then you break trust in really everything. To the reality around us, which the media was once set to reflect in a fair and balanced way. If no one believes anymore in what they hear and see, then the one-eyed king is in the realm of the blind. The strategy has been a formidable success when almost nine out of ten Republican voters believe the election was lost due to cheating.
Nine out of ten! With an Atlantic Ocean in between, we can laugh and shake our heads at foolish people. Which is so fanatical.
But it’s really scary, far scarier than Trump’s coup. For it is not a moment of frustration, they are not bad losers, as this number reflects. It shows a mass of voters who collectively give the finger to the facts, to the media. And this is the reality and the voters Republican politicians must and must deal with. Nine out of ten is not a number that disappears only Trump gets unpacked from the White House.
A radicalized voter base will follow his example, and that is to give a damn. In democracy, in all customs and usages, and in political culture. Trump’s denial of the election result has not been about being able to turn the outcome around, but about keeping the style completely, about showing the way forward.
So what does this middle finger mean to Republican men and women in Congress?

They are politicians on behalf of their voters. They are in Washington with one mandate, to represent the electorate. When so many of them support the delusion of a rigged election, it bodes very poorly for the climate of cooperation between incoming President Joe Biden and the upper and lower houses of Congress.
In the election, and in retrospect by collectively not recognizing the result, the voters marched to the Republican politicians. Democrats are villains, do not face them for anything.
Unwilling to work together, Republicans will undermine Biden.
The United States will not be allowed to embark on much-needed reforms to improve distribution and ensure a healthcare system that suits everyone. Where Trump’s party seems collectively like a fierce fist, the Democratic Party is experiencing great internal tensions and unrest. An increasingly clear left is impatient.
Dissatisfaction with Biden can quickly come if he does not deliver. Republicans know that. Therefore, just note January 5 in the calendar. Something as distant from us as a re-election of two senators from Georgia will be crucial. If the Democrats win both seats, Biden will be guaranteed almost unlimited room for political action for two years.
In any case, Donald Trump is the world’s most powerful man for almost two more months.
In parallel with his fight to undermine the American system, he has again begun to pardon employees who have come in bad weather.
The scandalized security adviser Michael Flynn, who lied to the FBI and had to resign after just over three weeks in Trump’s service, was pardoned on Wednesday. Although he is still not convicted. It is now expected that Trump will pardon more. Maybe even white-collar criminals.
More dangerous than released white snippets is Iran.
And although Trump has almost distinguished himself by being a president who has not gone to war, there is much speculation as to whether he will mark himself as Commander-In-Chief. It does not get more broad-minded than to order the most powerful military power of all time to attack.
It will clothe his self-image, and leave a mark on his agitated followers, to mark himself by attacking Iran. The New York Times wrote last week that Trump has considered the possibility of attacking Iran’s uranium enrichment plant. The American news service Axios reported this week that the Israeli military is preparing for a US attack on Iran. Such an attack could destabilize the Middle East again, and have unforeseen consequences. An explosive farewell gift from Trump to Biden, in that case. And that can shape Biden’s entire presidency.
January 20th is over. But what a precedent President Trump has set.
