US President Donald Trump has officially accepted the Republican party’s nomination as the standard bearer in the upcoming presidential elections. If elected for a second term, Trump promises to keep the “greatness” that his administration has brought upon the United States of America since he first assumed his post at the White House in January 2017. The election season this year is a lot different than it was 4 years ago, when the entire nation was almost divided in half between then-presidential candidate Hilary Clinton of the Democrat party and Trump.
This time around, it looks like the Republican party, which Trump claims he has full control over, seems to be divided still with regards to supporting Trump’s reelection bid.
Many Issues Causing Some Republicans To Withdraw Support From Trump’s Candidacy
In Trump’s acceptance speech in the recent Republican National Convention, the president took pride in his achievements in the last 4 years, something that his predecessors had failed to reach. Under his term, Trump claims that the Americans have once again enjoyed the advantages of being born in the great nation that is America. He has also warned that, if ever the country favors the Democrat party’s candidate, Joe Biden, over him, the former would erase the “greatness” that the Trump administration has fostered in the country.
If the latest surveys, as well as the TV ratings of the Republican National Convention, are any indication, Biden seems to have the edge over Trump at this point in the presidential race. There are many factors as to why some Americans have lost their faith and interest in Trump.
Even as the POTUS claims to have done so much for the US economy and international relations, the hard truth is that the United States was left with crises and corruption issues. Starting with the historic impeachment proceedings versus Trump earlier this year, the president’s bad record went on further with the poor handling of the COVID-19 crisis in the United States.
Now, Trump has to work twice as hard as he did 4 years ago for him to secure another term as president. Aside from convincing voters on the fence of choosing a Republican candidate, Trump also needs to make sure that he has the full support of the entire Republican party. Based on some Republican politicians’ reaction at the RNC, Trump might still have to convince his own supporters to never lost trust on him. He better hope that there is a Philadelphia criminal lawyer in his team.
