While many people are focused on the possible winner of the 2020 U.S. presidential election, some seem to have their concerns focused in another direction.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has recently expressed doubt that President Donald Trump will go out gracefully.
According to Pelosi, the country should be prepared for a possible "boycott" of the results from Trump's side if he ends up losing by a small margin.
The de facto leader of the Democratic Party explained: "If we win by four seats, by a thousand votes each, he's not going to respect the election. We have to inoculate against that; we have to be prepared for that."
She added: "He would poison the public mind. He would challenge each of the races; he would say "you can't seat these people. We had to win. Imagine if we hadn't won - oh, don't even imagine. So, as we go forward, we have to have the same approach."
Moreover, while this might sound like an exaggeration in the context of something that a president might do, it is worth noting that Trump has already committed various acts during his term in office that have brought him under question from many sides.
At the same time, Trump enjoys a broad support with the GOP base, even after some scandals surrounding his presidency.
This seems to be further fueling Pelosi's concerns, as she believes that Trump might successfully get a large number of people to support him if he decided to question the election results.
Could observers see the first precedent of a president overriding election results in America?
Many seem to doubt Pelosi's predictions, while others are keeping a wary eye on the situation.
It is no secret that Trump favors the use of underhanded moves when he believes that he could face no repercussions for them, and he has not moved away from those ideas even after entering the office.
With that in mind, it would certainly be interesting to see what Trump might have up his sleeve and whether his next term is going to be won in an unusual manner.
Do you think Trump could try to steal the election in 2020, yes or no?
