For the newspaper editorialist Rai al-Youm, the remaining ten days of Trump’s presidency hold some surprises in store for us; but one thing is certain: America will enter the phase of collapse.
“It may be that the “woman of steel” and leader of the Democratic majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, may be able to conduct a parliamentary trial to impeach incumbent President and defeated candidate Donald Trump for violating the Constitution and inciting his racist supporters to storm Congress, but lack of time may prevent her from doing so.
As for the possibility of Trump’s voluntary departure, as some expect, it is also unlikely, given Trump’s personality and especially his stubbornness. We therefore have ten more days of his reign ahead of us, ten days that may be full of surprises. »
According to Abdel Bari Atwan, the Trumpists’ attack on Capitol Hill was the first episode of a show of force. “The blocking of his account on Facebook, Instagram, and especially Twitter with 90 million followers, also proved to be in his favor, especially since supporters took advantage of this anti-Trump campaign to denounce measures against freedom of expression”.
According to the Arab journalist, there is every reason to believe that “a smooth transition of power will not take place”, “not because President Trump reneged on his commitments and regretted not having kept them, and not because U.S. Congressman Joe Biden said that the deputy to the outgoing president, Mike Pence, would be “welcome” at the inauguration ceremony. But because Trump’s popularity has not declined much among his supporters in the Republican Party, either in the Senate or the House of Representatives. »
“What we’re saying is that Trump’s “nightmare” is still in place, and that Trump is still counting on his supporters,” wrote Atwan. “This situation reflects the state of division that characterizes American society, which means that Trump’s removal or even resignation may be the fuse that will trigger civil war and bloody confrontations.
The article goes on to say: “This man will not disappear from the political arena, even if he is arrested; and we must remember that all the demands by military and political leaders to remove the “nuclear button” from him have so far proved useless, while a military team is still in charge of carrying these “codes” in “nuclear suitcases”, and these “nuclear suitcases” will always remain with Trump until the last day of his term, until he is removed, or until he resigns. »
“It is true that Trump is emerging from one crisis into another, and that his ministers and senior officials are leaving one after the other to escape the consequences of continuing at his side or to oppose his arrogance, recklessness, racist incitements and violations of the Constitution; but we still cannot completely rule out the threat of war in the Middle East, although this hypothesis is more or less weakened by the progression of internal crises in the United States. »
According to the Arab analyst of international issues, the United States of America today faces a struggle between two presidents, “the first is defeated, reckless, reckless, racist, and refuses to leave the presidential theater except with violence,” and “the second is an ‘old’ winner who does not have a minimum of charisma, and is surrounded by doctors, which makes one think of his counterparts in the Arab world [alluding to the old rulers of the Saudi kingdom]. »
In conclusion, Atwan added: “Whatever surprises the next ten days hold in store for us, America will enter a phase that could be described as the “beginning of collapse and weakness”, and will lose more and more of its so-called prestige as a global superpower every day. »
