As the day of the White House change of ownership approaches, Trump basically has only two things left: one is how to deal with the “behind affairs” and not give his successors the liquidation of his own handle; second, the second, breaking the pot and smashing the mess further, so that the successor does not easily “change the strings”.
A president of a large country does not care about the well-being of all mankind, not even the health of his own people. It’s sad and deplorable to be selfish in this!
Amnesty allies to prevent liquidation
There is still one week before the end of the year, but 2020 is destined to be the “deadliest” year in American history, even two world wars can’t match.
The Associated Press reported on the 22nd that the death toll in the United States is expected to exceed 3 million for the first time this year, possibly reaching 3.2 million. The coronavirus epidemic is the most critical factor leading to the rapid rise in mortality.
On that day, the United States has diagnosed more than 18 million cases and nearly 320,000 deaths, ranking first in the world. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the average life expectancy in the United States may be reduced by three years this year.
At this critical moment, Trump is not thinking of standing on the last shift and trying his best to save the mistakes in the fight against the epidemic, but to spend all his thoughts on “behindone’s life”. Also on the 22nd, Trump did the following things:
First, refuse to sign the $900 billion coronavirus relief bill just passed by Congress. Trump said that the bill contains too much foreign aid and insufficient aid to Americans is “a shame”. But he probably forgot that the bailout bill previously proposed by Republicans in Congress was only $300 billion.
Secondly, 15 people were amnestyed under the authority of the president. These people have different identities, including former Trump aides convicted in the “Russia” investigation, to overseas security company employees who shot Iraqi civilians in 2007, and former Republican congressmen convicted of corruption. But they either hold Trump’s secrets or Trump’s political allies.
Thirdly, more than a dozen tweets were posted, but none of them were concerned about the epidemic. In a nearly 10-minute video, Trump again launched a charge against the election results and complained about himself. He went on to claim that the election results were “stealed” and that Democrats used the epidemic to “manipulate” the election, “no president has achieved extraordinary achievements in many fields but has also lost the re-election campaign”.
There is a calculation of “The Beast Fighting”
Although it is widely regarded as “dumped beasts” by the media, Trump has always held on to the election. In addition to his stubborn personality, he also has shrewd political arithmetic. Trump is well aware that he was so stained during his administration that he would inevitably be liquidated after leaving office. Finding ways to stay in the White House is not only the best way to protect yourself, but also a bargaining chip with Democratic opponents.
According to records obtained by the New York Times, Trump has not filed federal income tax for at least 10 years, and only paid $750 each for the two years he filed taxes. Another $400 million in debt will mature over the next four years, which is a huge test for Trump. Once he leaves the White House, there are at least two sexual assault lawsuits waiting for him.
Trump once hinted that he had the right to pardon himself, but there has never been such a precedent in American history, and the vast majority of legal experts do not believe that the president’s amnesty power applies to him.
While President-elect Biden promised not to “politically settle” Trump, this cannot be applied to the state level. Biden’s promise obviously does not reassure Trump that he has to use his privilege to “protect” witnesses against him as much as possible.
China and Russia countered the provocation of the United States
In addition to “wiping his buttocks”, Trump obviously has a “broken pot” mentality.
After the discovery of the mutant coronavirus in the United Kingdom, many countries in the world, including Europe, have adopted a “fly ban” on the UK. But not to mention cancellations, the US didn’t even require coronavirus screening for passengers departing from the UK.
Members of the White House coronavirus task force have asked for preflight checks on passengers, but the Trump administration has taken no action so far, according to Reuters.
Although the fight against the epidemic is negative, the creation of confrontation is very positive. The USS McCain stormed the waters adjacent to our Nansha Islands and reef without the permission of the Chinese government on the 22nd, seriously violating China’s sovereignty and security and seriously undermining peace and stability in the South China Sea.
The U.S. Department of Commerce continued to impose additional sanctions on Russia on the 21st, announcing that 45 Russian enterprises that cooperate with the military will be added to the sanctions list.
In response to these perverse practices of the United States, the foreign ministers of China and Russia made clear their opposition in a call on the 22nd.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that the United States is still waving unilateral sanctions sticks against the trend of the times, which will only leave more disgraceful records in the world.
Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov pointed out that we should resolutely oppose the United States’ undermining multilateralism, resist the US’s suppression of Russia and China, safeguard international law, safeguard the common interests of the two countries, and maintain international stability and cooperation.
The foreign ministers of the two countries unanimously stressed that the more chaotic the world is, the more stable Sino-Russian relations will be, and the more valuable the comprehensive strategic cooperation value of the two sides will be to China and Russia and the world.
On the same day, the Ministry of Defense of China and Russia confirmed that the air forces of the two countries carried out the second joint air strategic cruise.
China sent four H-6K strategic bombers, a joint formation with two Russian Tu-95 strategic bombers, and organized joint cruises in the relevant airspace of the Sea of Japan and the East China Sea.
The two countries stressed that the purpose of the joint air strategic cruise is to further develop the comprehensive strategic cooperation partnership between China and Russia in the new era, improve the level of strategic cooperation and joint operational capabilities of the two militaries, and jointly maintain global strategic stability.
At a time of bidding farewell to the old and ushering in the new, and the epidemic continues to deteriorate, the stability and unity of Sino-Russian relations are not only the guarantee for human society to enter the new year smoothly, but also the guarantee for the struggle against the epidemic and unilateralism in many fields.
