[Asia News Communication = Reporter Reakkana] President Donald Trump's attempts to overturn his election loss is plunging deeper into incoherence. On Saturday night, the Trump campaign requested a second recount in Georgia, a day after top Republican state officials certified his defeat following a statewide audit. This one will be done by machine and is even less likely to reverse his fate. Hours earlier, a federal judge rejected the Trump campaign's latest effort to disenfranchise millions of voters this time in Pennsylvania.
All around the country, Trump lawyers and loyalists are seeing their allegations of systemic voter fraud treated with increasing contempt by judges. Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a staunch Trump ally, called the conduct of the President's legal team a "national embarrassment" on Sunday and said it was time for him to end his futile legal gambit.
But even as Trump's brazen bid to subvert American democracy keeps gobbling up headlines, it is his appalling handling of the pandemic that seems poised now to etch itself more lastingly into the history books. The United States surpassed 12 million coronavirus cases on Saturday, adding nearly 200,000 more to its staggering count. Trump has made no mention of the terrifying milestone. Rather, he spent part of the day golfing.
