Trump has “nothing to lose,” according to the editorial board of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, by allowing the government to start working with Joe Biden’s transition team.
It’s time, according to the editorial board of a publication controlled by GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson, for President Donald Trump to accept his defeat.
Trump’s continual assertions of widespread voting fraud are “simply incorrect,” according to The Las Vegas Review-Journal, and as such, they “do a disservice to his more passionate fans.”
The editorial, which was published Wednesday night, claims that “in fact, rhetoric from Trump surrogates alleging widespread unlawful conduct has been lacking precise evidence supporting the assertion that there was a systematic effort to steal the election through corruption.” It is insulting to reason and logic to claim that a few isolated irregularities are evidence of a massive national conspiracy in an electoral system that incorporates the involvement of 150 million Americans.
Republican candidates are twisting themselves to fit under the president’s description of the race because Republicans’ ballot from Trump surpassed predictions and preelection polling.
It’s the newest indication that prominent Republicans and elements of the conservative media are starting to refer to Trump in the past tense, at least while he was still the president.
According to POLITICO, during the last stretch of the presidential campaign, Adelson, whose multibillion-dollar fortune came from the casino industry, and his wife donated $75 million to a pro-Trump super PAC to support Trump’s reelection. Despite being a dependable Trump supporter, the newspaper’s owner, Adelson, came under fire from the president earlier this year when he claimed that Adelson was not contributing enough to his campaign.
On some issues, the editorial board of a newspaper leaning to the right did support Trump and his allies. They stated that he “indeed faced an overtly hostile press, a political establishment that treated him as an enemy occupier and an opposition party that took leave of its senses at the mere thought of his existence.”
Nevertheless, it stated, “Mr. Trump lost this election because he ultimately didn’t garner enough support and failed to win a few swing states that went his way in 2016.”
The editorial stated that Trump and his campaign are free to keep challenging the election results in court, but added that by allowing the government to start working with Joe Biden’s transition team, “he has nothing to lose.”
“Mr. Even as [Hillary Clinton’s] acolytes explored ideas to rig the Electoral College vote in 2016, Trump expected no less from the Obama administration, it reads. “Mr. Today, regardless of how long the president tries to put off the inevitable, Biden deserves the same respect.
