Violation of Democratic Norms

It’s been days since the call for Democrat Joe Biden was made for the White House election, but Donald Trump has yet to acknowledge or display any signs of accepting his loss.

Alternatively, he makes unproven accusations of systematic voter fraud, which he believes to have tipped the race to Biden.

However, the maths are overwhelming-he trails in some states by tens of thousands of votes he will have to reverse in order to succeed. It is seen by most as a lost cause.

Trump’s stance is sending tremors across the nation in violation of democratic norms and practises, as elected officials and American voters respond to a situation that still travels uncharted territory while telegraphed for months in advance.
